These slides were from my NoSQL Matters Barcelona 2013 presentation. During this presentation I went into detail about the architecture behind our high performance real-time visitor analysis platform. The talk will also cover why we chose CouchBase for storage and how Elasticsearch can be used for advanced search and analytics. I shared how we integrated and leverage both products full-circle from within our Hippo CMS product.

  10. 10. NoSQL Matters 2013 Matching Characteristic - a type of fact about visitors Example: "comes from a city", "experiences a type of weather" Target Group - the specification of a Characteristic Example: "comes from a European city", "comes from Amsterdam" Persona - one or more target groups that describe a certain type of visitor Example: "Jim, the European urban consumer", "Alice, the Pet owner" follow the Hippo trail
