Goldman Sachs Search: a Consistent Search Experience in No Time

Goldman Sachs Search provides a fast and responsive way to search for data with a consistent user experience. One of the main objectives of this product was to minimise programming effort when on-boarding new data sets, which in itself fits with a broader strategy of using industry standard tools to build generic software. In this talk we highlight how Goldman Sachs engineering has used Elasticsearch to achieve this.
