Business analytics

Business critical metrics & insights

Analyze your KPIs, metrics, and goals in one place with the Elastic Stack. Create and share reports with real-time data.

Centralize any and all data, without limits

From ingesting social media documents for sentiment analysis to summarizing unique KPIs to discover hidden trends, bring it all together in the Elastic Stack. Connect data across systems and scale from millions to billions of documents as your use cases expand to include types of data you never imagined analyzing.


Discover insights with ease

Start exploring data from day one using Kibana Lens, an intuitive way to create visualizations in Kibana. Analyze your data on the fly with drag and drop functionality, immediate previews, and smart suggestions. Perform ad hoc exploration as your data takes shape. Follow a hunch, dig deeper, and build out dashboards to continue monitoring.

Share detail-rich reports

Ensure you are always on the same page with your stakeholders using Kibana's built-in reporting capabilities. Generate beautiful PDFs for your team with a single click and schedule regular updates for your customers. Output raw data and documents for audiences that need more than just the summary and put your dashboards into the inboxes of everyone who needs them.


Create live, custom infographics

Compose pixel-perfect displays with Canvas, a workpad for live data. Customize every aspect with your choice of palettes, fonts, and design elements that showcase what you're all about. Maybe that’s sailboats, maybe it's t-shirts. Be you.

Keep your team engaged in live analytics without leaving the UI. Your Canvas workpad is a breathing, real-time presentation that's always ready. No need to manually update your reports.

Anomaly detection & on-demand forecasting

Are t-shirt purchases lower than usual this afternoon? Is there a hiccup in your sales pipeline? Unsupervised machine learning lets you identify issues before they impact your business. Prepare for the future with our forecasting features that answer questions like, "Based on our t-shirt sales last year, what quantity should we have in stock to satisfy demand next quarter?"
