Search Engine technologies, like OpenSearch, have continued to grow in popularity for a number of different use cases. Features like full-text search, fast ingestion, scalability, faceting, and extensible plugin frameworks were often enhanced with the aim to improve the search use case. However, the side effect of these improvements provided much of the foundation that led people to adopting these technologies for other uses like click stream analytics, log analytics, security analytics, and more.
In this talk we will explore how features that started as search enhancements opened the door for new use cases and why we continue to see affinity between search engines and broader analytics workloads.
