Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. Before we get into your work at Elastic, can you tell us a little bit about your background?
Topic 2 - Let’s start with the basics of search. Everyone knows about how they use Google for their day-to-day activities, but what are some of the common uses of search in a business or IT context that people might not think about or know about? * *
Topic 3 - Elastic is mentioned very frequently in the “search” discussion, but then it’s also included in a number of popular “stacks” (ELK stack, EFK stack, etc.). How does Elastic think about search being a core component of many other stacks (Metrics, APM, Security, etc.), some of which you may not have any immediate visibility to?
Topic 4 - What are some of the evolutions that are happening around search (or broader stacks) that are interesting to developers?
Topic 5 - How does Elastic think about how or when customers (or developers) are consuming Elastic technologies, across OSS, commercial software and SaaS offerings?
