Kibana for business operation


(Michael Tran) #1

Hi,

I would like to know if it's possible with kibana to create dashboard for business operation.
We would like to monitor the revenue of our business, entry and exit of staff member using data from an HR application (BoondManager). Do you have some example of dashboard for business operation and what kind of data we need to build this type of dashboard ?

Thanks for you help !

Regards,
Michael

Kibana can be used to display many different kinds of data. You may want to check out some of the talks on our website that show how other business's are using Kibana and the elastic stack for business operations. Here is one that looks relevant: https://www.elastic.co/elasticon/conf/2017/sf/it-as-the-transmission-of-the-sprint-business-engine

The first thing you'll need to do is figure out how to ingest data from your HR application into elasticsearch. You'll have to figure out how data is stored in BoondManager, or how to extract it, so it can be consumed by elasticsearch. Logstash is the best place to look for that. There are many different plugins to help get data out of different databases and into logstash. https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/logstash/current/input-plugins.html

Hope this helps!

Hi,

Do you think we have to develop a specific beat for boondmanager to input data from elasticsearch to kibana ?
