Love Kibi? You’ll be happy to hear we are launching Kibi Enterprise – Kibi EE on May 17th at 4.30pm (GMT +1) with a Webinar hosted by its creators Giovanni Tummarello and Renaud Delbru.
Updated: see our Launch Webinar HERE
Welcome Kibi Enterprise Edition – Kibi EE!
Kibi Enterprise Edition extends regular Kibi with advanced data intelligence features and enterprise level functionality.
Kibi is our Kept-In-Sync Kibana friendly fork (see core posts    and homepage) capable of ultra high performance relational data handling across both Elasticsearch indexes and other systems (e.g., SQL databases, Rest APIs).
What’s New in Kibi EE
Graph Analytics – See everything interconnected – anytime
Sometimes events and entities are better understood via the study of how they connect together in a “graph”. A core feature of Kibi EE is the ability to seamlessly switch to “Graph Analytics Mode”, providing scalable, smooth and meaningful graph navigation and analytics functionality.
There is no need for a separate graph data store. Kibi allows analysts and investigators to switch anytime from regular data exploration to “Graph Mode” and back, based on the same Elasticsearch backend which you have configured already for the “standard” Set-to-Set relational browsing capabilities of Kibi.
No graph data store doesn’t mean you lose state-of-the-art sophisticated graph capabilities. In fact, Kibi EE handles graphs by implementing a full Gremlin query endpoint as a “Kibi Datasource” and then takes it from within its new Graph Visualization Widget.
The result is that not only can you explore the graph interactively, but you can also launch complex graph algorithms and see the results either on the graph visualization itself (e.g., shortest path) or use Gremlin to answer complex queries that would never be possible using Elasticsearch query language capabilities alone.
More details in future blog posts, but in the meantime this graph shows the output from a graph analytics investigation with some data from our classic Articles–>Companies–>Investments–>Investors Demo.
More Graph Action (Open Source Intelligence Demo)
For those who missed it, some time ago we shared a preview of this functionality in an “Open Source Intelligence” (e.g., news from newspapers) scenario. Full screencast available here.
Seamlessly integrated paradigms
Graph analytics per se are not new, but when you have seamless full search across all live streaming indexes, coupled with the beautifully configurable Kibana derived analytics and Kibi’s unique relational “set to set” browsing, then we believe the result is simply way ahead of anything else available out there!
… but, judge it yourself at our launch webinar :).
Access Control (Elasticsearch Shield Integration)
Kibi Enterprise Edition leverages Elasticsearch Shield for Index, Field and Record level access control
To provide the highest grade of configurability, security and support, Kibi Enterprise Edition integrates with Elastic Shield. This allow User access limits at a granular level:
- per Index
- per Field
- per Record
..and Kibi EE can take this into consideration coherently across standard dashboards and in its relational as well as graph data capabilities. Details and demonstration at our webinar :).
Snappier and more scalable (configurable Join Strategies)
Kibi Community Edition is highly scalable already. Kibi EE takes this up a notch and thanks to the fine grained control over Join Strategies, it is even snappier too.
Does your data have small and packed IDs? Do you need deterministic Joins (catching bad guys) or are you ok with “some false positives” (you’re doing analytics on very big data)? Is ranking important, do you want just the top X per join? We have settings for you! .. and by setting these parameters properly you can scale Kibi by many folds and get faster answers when needed.
Ease of deployment and maintenance via Chef, Puppet, Ansible, Docker support and more. One line Kibi Cluster deployment to Amazon and Google Cloud.
And of course the support options you’d expect in an enterprise offering, from priority business to 24/7.

More on the Webinar
Dr. Giovanni Tummarello (CEO) and Dr. Renaud Delbru (CTO) will demonstrate all the above features… and more 🙂 (promise). In addition we have some great use cases to share around Tax and Fraud Analysis, Cyber Security and Financial Services.
