The Elastic Stack (previously ELK stack, Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana, Beats) is built around the popular Elasticsearch search index. It allows you to start small but will grow with your business to many use cases. It is built to scale horizontally and vertically. As you need more capacity, just add more resources or nodes, and let the cluster reorganize itself to take advantage of the extra hardware. Elasticsearch is based on the open source Apache Lucene Java library.
After 10+ years of working with opensource we know how you can get higher quality in search projects, in shorter time - Findwise i3!

One solution - many use cases
We often use Information Platform as the best description of how we use Elasticsearch as a central collection point for information that is used in different places for example in the Region Östergötland case. This also is a good explanation for how Elasticsearch can be the backend to information driven websites, such as the case at Intersport.
Lightweight Business Intelligence tool
Kibana also works as a lightweight and very capable stand-alone application to provide real-time strategic business insights or integrate with your existing applications to power their interactions with incoming data. Thousands of organizations worldwide use the Elastic Stack for an endless variety of business critical functions. The main differentiator between The Elastic stack and other business intelligence tools is that Elastic usually is used to get real-time visibility into information instead of scheduled for example nightly updates typically done in BI tools.
We offer Elastic as a service (Elasticsearch as a service and Kibana as a service) in our Predictive Analytics offering exactly for this type of analyses. Continuous monitoring of every element of your IT environment, be it applications, business functions or integrations.
