YELP WANTED TO SPEND MORE TIME BUILDING YELP

  • Engineering wanted self-service analytics to track key metrics instrumented in real-time
  • Multidimensionality in metrics data for drill downs and alerting on dynamic aggregations
  • Real-time analytics to catch problems before they impact users

RESULTS

  • Ops can now find and resolve problems they were unable to see before
  • Proactive capacity planning enabled analytics on high resolution data
  • Teams empowered to diagnose, tune, and test their own service performance

Yelp connects people with great local businesses. Founded in July 2004, Yelp has taken root in countries across the globe, making it the leading local guide for real word-of-mouth on everything from boutiques and mechanics to restaurants and dentists.
