Using Elasticsearch to drive car2go's realtime business insights from their connected cars

Car2go is an always-on business offering mobility service with cars to customers living in urban areas. Customers and cars constitute an IoT service generating data which must be processed and analyzed in real-time. E.g. vehicle connectivity and condition, position data, reservation and payment, registration and validation. Elasticsearch was introduced to all development teams as an offering, and as a result high quality data analysis can be generated based on systems inside status to all parts of the organization. Using DevOps methods each team is able to implement, modify and visualize data effectively. This gives a fast understanding of capacity, errors and business opportunities in real-time.
