Making of a Modern Media Publisher: Elastic @ FairFax Media

Fairfax Media Limited has been a trusted source of independent and quality content for more than 185 years. Audiences across Australia and New Zealand start their day by opening up or browsing through their mastheads online, including The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, Brisbane Times, and The Australian Financial Review. Like many, the media industry is in the midst of a seismic shake-up caused by the lower barrier of entry for new players and changing expectations of consumers. Keeping audiences engaged requires a re-think of how content is consumed and rapid innovation. For Fairfax Media Limited, it's also meant replatforming the business and moving search and analytics onto the Elastic Stack. This has made the business' data instantly more usable and enabled it to deliver new products fast.
