  1. Finding the Right Tool For the Job: Elastic @ Home

    Depot Joe Davis, Senior IT Architect/Manager | Home Depot Adron Hall | Home Depot 1
  2. Overview

  3. Talk  Overview • Who  we  are/What  we  do   •

    How  we  use  Elastic  tools   • Business  Scenario:  Supplier  promotions  —  How  we  used  Elastic  to  solve  a   major  pain  point  for  our  users  and  stakeholders   • Hacking  business  strategy  with  Elastic   • Questions?? 3
  4. Who  we  are/What  we  do

  5. Who  we  are/What  we  do:  The  Home  Depot  Quote  Center

    • 80+  associates  working  out  of  Vancouver,  WA   • Facilitate  special  order  quoting/sales  to  “PRO”  customers   • Phone  support/sales   • Special  order  merchandising/product  data  management   • Product  development  (Web-­‐based  solutions  for  vendors  and  associates)   • Annually  $Billions  quoted,  ~$1/2  Billion  sold   5
  6. None
  7. How  we  use  Elastic  tools

  8. How  we  use  Elastic  tools • Product  search   •

    Associate  workflows   • Vendor  workflows   • Customer  Lookup   • Messaging  analytics  —  Logstash/Kibana  (In  development)   • Promotional  rules  engine!?!?     • Query  and  Document  examples   The  possibilities  are  limited  only  by  your  imagination!   8
  9. …more  importantly,  WHY  do  we  use  Elastic? 9 • It

     just  works   • Configuration  is  a  breeze   • It  is  crazy  flexible   • It  scales  so  easily   • It  handles  server  loss  so  gracefully   • It’s  like  adding  a  10x  programmer  to  your  staff   • It’s  our  Swiss  Army  knife
  10. None
  11. Business  Scenario:  ProDirect  supplier  promotions • Supplier-­‐based  promotions   •

    “PRO”-­‐only  customer  base   • The  program  was  languishing   • Binders  of  promotions…   • Complex  rulesets   • How  do  we  turn  average,  high-­‐turnover  associates  into  experts:   • Automating  the  insanity  with  the  help  of  Percolator   • Our  PRO  marketing/merchandising  teams  are  now  our  biggest  fans 11
  12. None
  13. None
  14. How  does  a  promotional  rules  engine  like  this  work? 14

    • Establish  input  context   • More  information  means  more  choices  in…   • Decide  which  rules  apply  to  the  given  context   • Retrieve  messages,  adjustments,  etc.  that  apply  to  these  rules   • Client  displays  adjustments  and  translates  messages
  15. How  Percolate  works  -­‐  index  of  queries PUT  /my-­‐index/.percolator/123  

    {          query:{                  bool:{                          must:[  {                                  terms:  {                                          productId:[                                                  427092,427093                                          ]  }                                    }                    }]   }}} 15
  16. How  Percolate  works  -­‐  Documents  in  place  of  queries GET

     /my-­‐index/my-­‐type/_percolate   {          “doc”:  {                  “storeId”:3406,                  “productId”:427093,                  "name":"Universal  Security  Instruments  Smoke  Alarm  w/  Batteries”,                  "additionalDescription":"1-­‐UL  Listed  USI-­‐1227L”,                  "unit":"EA",                  “count":5          }   } 16
  17. How  Percolate  works  -­‐  results {        

     "took"  :  3,          "_shards"  :  {  …  },          "total"  :  1,          "matches"  :  [                    {                      "_index"  :  "my-­‐index",                      "_id"  :  "123"                  }          ]   } 17
  18. It’s  a  little  more  complicated  in  practice,  but  you  get

  19. Hacking  business  strategy

  20. Hacking  business  strategy • Our  business  partners  LOVE  us  because

     we  deliver  “the  impossible”   • Don’t  go  build  a  promotional  discounting  rules  engine—but,  you  CAN   • Compelling  open-­‐ended  architecture  of  Elastic—the  Swiss  Army  knife  of  data   • Solve  complex  problems  quickly   • Prepare  for  scale   • Elastic  enables   • Rapid  NoSQL  prototyping  with  minimal  configuration   • Easy  and  massive  scale   • “But,  it  was  only  supposed  to  be  a  prototype.” 20
  21. What  will  we  do  next  with  Elastic? • Shallow  graph

     lookup?   • Product  relationships  (cross-­‐sell/up-­‐sell)   • Compatibles  and  alternatives   • If  I  want  a  specific  vinyl  fencing  panel,  that  automatically  decides  which   connector  types  I  need  and  limits  my  choice  of  posts!  Too  many  returns!!   • Just  in  time  messaging   • Warning!!  If  you  buy  different  brands  of  roofing  shingles  and  felt  rolls,  you   may  void  the  30-­‐year  warranty!!   • Kappa  speed  layer?   • CQRS  read-­‐only  channel? 21
