Splunk is one of the most used of modern applications because it derives insights from information that organizations already have. IT Operations, Enterprise Security and various lines of business all generate vast volumes of log data and metadata. Splunk solutions enable organizations to analyze this data to make better decisions. The more of this data they can analyze the better those decisions can be. The problem is that Splunk environments can become complicated and expensive as the dataset scales. The key for IT is to drive down the cost of retaining data while driving up performance so data analysts deliver better value.
