Pros
Valuable features include wide support for monitoring, strong event management, service management capability, baselining (analytics) and easy to integrate other tools with it.It provides common administration, and a Single Sign-On Platform with RBAC, which eases the cross launch between multiple toolsThe tailoring of the knowledge modules has been particularly useful as I can streamline the agents to only report on critical events.It is very helpful to be able to apply rule-based routing to alerts.TSOM's ability to consolidate alerts into a single location and provide filtering of alerts is great.It has provided us with a single location to host all events to be viewed/monitored by our NOC. This has greatly helped them to streamline their processes.It allows our operations team to have one single application to reference when investigating issues in our environment.Signature baselines, which have allowed us to fine tune many of our events and significantly reduce the number of events generated.

It is a one stop shop as a full monitoring and alerting solution for operations and application analysis for most of our back-end systems.We used it to create a custom anomaly detection data model to monitor the activity of our back-end services on an hourly basis relative to the past three months of activity.Splunk UBA is useful for fraud detection and for detection of APTs, advanced persistent threats.UBA, User Behavior Analytics, is a key feature.We can ingest and correlate data from virtually any type of system.Capability to expand the functionality through custom code for data inputs, commands, visualization, alerts, and machine learning.Splunk has significantly helped with aggregation and correlation of critical logs. Not having to grep on each individual server has made everyone more efficient.Splunk has facilitated the correlation of information security logs to look for incidents which could cause damage to the company's infrastructure, as well as financial losses from leaks.

Cons
Deployment requires lots of resources (servers). It has too many consoles.The knowledge modules could be more lightweight in size. At present, the installation packages can be quite large.BMC's solutions for cloud monitoring (monitoring of AWS and Azure resources) are very poor in stability and customization.BMC's online documentation is often incorrect or incomplete.I would really like to see out-of-the-box support for monitoring uninterruptible power supplies.More modules for less popular applications and better documentation.I think the ease of deployment needs to be looked at. It would be great if the deployment was faster and easier.The sizing (which is difficult), the maintenance of it and the upgrade paths. This is a difficult area which is not easy to cover, as every client has a different approach of implementing the product.

It needs to improve the way to install third-party apps and enable installation without logging into splunk.com.I think the machine learning should be emphasized. Now, it's really important to analyze Big Data, data mining. A SIEM solution, like Splunk, needs an improved data mining solution, artificial intelligence.Missing capability for audio/video and image processing.While scheduled reports can be embedded, Splunk dashboard can not be embedded directly without enabling cross origin.DMC should be a little more intuitive with better dashboarding. Seeing the cause of data flow can be tough to track down.Splunk can improve regex/asset analysis as we do not want to crawl until it is done.It can be tough to get a hold of somebody in technical support depending on the complexity of the issue.The Enterprise Security app could be improved. We have had trouble with it working from the first day.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Pricing is very high.The solutions are not the cheapest but are robust and stable. License model is rather complex and BMC do often change the model.Use conservative figures. In terms of hardware, monitored servers and also effort. The product is not cheap. But as with other products, you get what you pay for.

It is possible to use a developer's license, which is up to 10GB per day of volume traffic, which is usually enough for most use cases.Free Splunk license for PoCs on personal machines and the ability to scale the PoC to an enterprise level app.It can be expensive, especially the licensing costs. However, there is added value in what it can do, not just log aggregation.Splunk is a bit pricier, but the benefits and ROI are huge.It is a pretty high cost solution, but if your organization has the funds, it can bring many benefits.Personnel costs are saved by not having to involve the domain developers from multiple teams when tracing a problem that spans multiple platforms.Truly evaluate the data you want to ingest and go slow. Pulling in data that can provide no use to your mission only wastes data against your license.Our ROI is high.
