Open source platform speed and scalability enables fast search and increased data insights

HERNDON, Va. (Feb 2, 2018) - DLT Solutions, an award-winning technology provider to the public sector, announced today a new technology partnership with Elastic to help U.S. public sector organizations and government agencies address challenges to search and analyze all forms of big data in real time.

Elastic is the company behind Elastic Stack (Elasticsearch, Kibana, Beats, Logstash), the most widely-used collection of open source products for solving mission-critical data analytic use cases like search, logging, security, metrics, and analytics. The software has been downloaded over 160 million times and is in use throughout the U.S. Federal Government.

“Customers have become frustrated with the cost and technical limitations of their existing enterprise software solutions and are looking to Elastic to increase their agility and change the price-performance proposition” said George Young, VP of Public Sector of Elastic. “Customers use the Elastic Stack to enable true interactive ad-hoc queries at massive scale at costs others can’t match.  We are growing at an extremely rapid rate as word is spreading from successful projects across the government.”

The Elastic Stack plays a key and foundational role in the DLT AnalyticsStackTM framework, performing text and log analytics along with big data search functions in the stack’s analytics layer. Some government use-cases include anomaly detection, cyber threat intelligence, and log/event analytics. Recently launched, the DLT AnalyticsStack is a scalable reference framework for the public sector with a focus on Big Data, Analytics and Data Science.  This reference framework addresses the rapidly evolving big data requirements and use cases. Rather than just piecemealing products, the stack’s 'building-block' approach helps agencies quickly architect, procure and deploy enterprise analytics capabilities ranging from big data infrastructure to advanced analytics and data science capabilities. The DLT AnalyticsStack leverages a solution-oriented ecosystem of technology vendors helping agencies quickly realize the benefits of advanced analytics capabilities.

“Agencies are being asked to answer new questions of complex and large datasets,” said David Blankenhorn, chief technology officer at DLT. “The Elastic Stack enables more informed decisions and improved situational awareness in support of agency missions by allowing analysts to quickly and easily invoke advanced queries on their ever-expanding data assets.”
