Elastic Adds New Features to Enterprise Search, Observability, and Security Solutions

Search and data-management firm Elastic has some new features to crow about. BusinessWire posts “Elastic Announces Innovations Across its Solutions to Optimize Search and Enhance Performance and Monitoring Capabilities.” One new tool is Kibana Lens, a visual data analysis tool with a drag-and-drop interface described as intuitive. There is also a beta launch of the searchable snapshots, an efficient way to manage data storage tiers with searchable snapshots. The press release tells us:

“New expanded Elastic Observability features, including user experience monitoring and synthetics, give developers new tools to test, measure, and optimize end-user website experiences. The launch of a new dedicated User Experience app in Kibana provides Elastic customers with an enhanced view and understanding of how end users experience their websites. In addition, Elastic customers can use the new user experience monitoring feature to review Core Web Vitals, helping website developers interpret digital experience signals. Elastic users can also leverage a dev preview release of synthetic monitoring in Elastic Uptime to simulate complex user flows, measure performance, and optimize new interaction paths without impact to a website’s end users. The combination of these two new observability features gives Elastic customers a deeper view of their customers’ digital experience before and after a site update is deployed.”

Built around open source software, the company prides itself on its user-friendly products that have been adopted by major organizations around the world, from Cisco to Verizon. Elastic began as Elasticsearch Inc. in 2012, simplified its name in 2015, and went public in 2018. The company is based in Mountain View, California, and maintains offices around the world.
