Session Speaker:

Graham tackleyGraham Tackley, Director of Architecture, The Guardian

Graham Tackley, director of architecture for The Guardian — one of the world’s most popular websites with 5 million daily unique visitors — will be joining us to discuss their Elasticsearch-based analytics system.

The system enables more than 500 people across the company – including editors, journalists, the search optimization team, and developers – to see in real-time exactly how users are interacting with the content.

This leads to valuable insights into page traffic, traffic sources, the ideal social networks for sharing certain articles, and site performance issues.

And the results show what’s happening on the website now, not what happened hours ago. That’s an increasingly important goal for companies now.

Stay tuned for more DataBeat program announcements this week, and you can find event details — including our full lineup of data visionaries — here.

Join us May 19-20 for a two day roadmap on how to approach data to ignite real growth for your business. Again, the room is nearly full, and tickets go up $200 this Friday! Get yours here!
