Splunk Review

Can ingest any data and display it in a way that anyone can understand

What is our primary use case?

I work with Splunk, as a contractor, so I use it in many different areas. Most often it is used to get performance insights on applications or servers. Recently, I have used it in more of an endpoint security mindset. 

How has it helped my organization?

My whole organization is built around Splunk. We provide Splunk PS to many different companies. If Splunk did not have such a good presence, we could not exist.

What is most valuable?

The best features would have to be the ability to ingest any data and display it in a way that anyone can understand.

What needs improvement?

It needs more thoroughly tested releases. Every new big version (6, 7, etc.) has had so many bugs that it makes me wary of customers upgrading right away.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.
