Data Visualization for Presentation

Presentation of the results is an important step for the customer, to see the outcome of the work that has been done by the data scientist.

This often means a visualisation of the results in a dash board with explanations in writing.

The Elastic Stack, as the successor of the ELK Stack, is a great toolbox. It contains the following open source components:

  1. Elastic Search, a powerful enterprise level search and analytics engine.
  2. Logstash is a server‑side data processing pipeline that ingests data from multiple sources simultaneously, transforms it, and then sends it to a “stash”, like Elasticsearch.
  3. Kibana, a presentation tool so users can visualise data with charts and graphs in Elasticsearch.
  4. Beats, a family of lightweight, single-purpose data shippers, added to the original ELK Stack.
