Splunk Review

Visualizations helped the organisation have a better understanding of its KPIs

What is our primary use case?

Splunk provided me a platform to analyze both infrastructure loads and application performance for quick troubleshooting saving a load of time. Versatile apps at Splunkbase helped me to better configure and enhance visualization of the KPIs in my application.

How has it helped my organization?

  • Splunk has reduced application downtime by helping identify the point of failure.
  • It has helped in identifying information streaming bottlenecks. 
  • Its machine learning capabilities along with custom script implementation has helped the organization a lot.
  • Visualizations helped the organisation have a better understanding of its KPIs. 

What is most valuable?

Its huge, versatile AppBase helped me to configure and bring data from different sources to a unified platform. 

What needs improvement?

  • Custom visualizations are real hard. While the default visualizations are good, creating enhanced visualizations are complex.
  • Configuring a few apps is complex, not straightforward.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No stability issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No scalability issues.

How was the initial setup?

Splunk setup is easy and straightforward. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Splunk is a bit pricier, but the benefits and ROI are huge.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also evaluated ELK, Dynatrace, and New Relic, but Splunk provided a comprehensive solution to fit our all around needs.
