We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
Even if it's a relatively technical tool or platform, it's very intuitive and graphical. It's very appealing in terms of the user interface. The UI has a graphically interface with the raw data in a table. The table can be as big as you want it, depending on your use case. You can easily get a report combining your data, along with calculations and graphical dashboards. You don't need a lot of training, because the UI is relatively very intuitive.The user interface is really modern. As an end-user, there are a lot of possibilities to tailor the platform to your needs, and that can be done without needing much support from Devo. It's really flexible and modular. The UI is very clean.One of the biggest features of the UI is that you see the actual code of what you're doing in the graphical user interface, in a little window on the side. Whatever you're doing, you see the code, what's happening. And you can really quickly switch between using the GUI and using the code. That's really useful.Being able to build and modify dashboards on the fly with Activeboards streamlines my analyst time because my analysts aren't doing it across spreadsheets or five different tools to try to build a timeline out themselves. They can just ingest it all, build a timeline out across all the logging, and all the different information sources in one dashboard. So, it's a huge time saver. It also has the accuracy of being able to look at all those data sources in one view. The log analysis, which would take 40 hours, we can probably get through it in about five to eight hours using Devo.

The feature that we have found the most valuable is scalability.The solution has a good community surrounding it for lots of helpful documentation for troubleshooting purposes.The most valuable feature for me is Discover.I use the stack every morning to check the errors and it's just so clear. I don't see any disadvantage to using Logstash.It's simple and easy to use.ELK Logstash is easy and fast, at least for the initial setup with the out of box uses.The most valuable feature is the ability to collect authentication information from service providers.The feature that helps us to create a report for the login testing of Logstash is the most valuable aspect of the solution.

Cons
There's always room to reduce the learning curve over how to deal with events and machine data. They could make the machine data simpler.The Activeboards feature is not as mature regarding the look and feel. Its functionality is mature, but the look and feel is not there. For example, if you have some data sets and are trying to get some graphics, you cannot change anything. There's just one format for the graphics. You cannot change the size of the font, the font itself, etc.Their documentation could be better. They are growing quickly and need to have someone focused on tech writing to ensure that all the different updates, how to use them, and all the new features and functionality are properly documented.

The process of designing dashboards is a little cumbersome in Kibana. Unless you are an expert, you will not be able to use it. The process should be pretty straightforward. The authentication feature is what we are looking for. We would love to have a central authentication system in the open-source edition without the need for a license or an enterprise license. If they can give at least a simple authentication system within a company. In a large organization, authentication is very essential for security because logs can contain a lot of confidential data. Therefore, an authentication feature for who accesses it should be there.The solution needs to be more reactive to investigations. We need to be able to detect and prevent any attacks before it can damage our infrastructure. Currently, this solution doesn't offer that.I would like the process of retrieving archived data and viewing it in Kibana to be simplified.One thing they could add is a quick step to enable users who don't have a solid background to build a dashboard and quickly search, without difficulty.This solution cannot do predictive maintenance, so we have to build our own modules for doing it.In terms of what could be improved with Elastic, in some use cases, especially on the advanced level, they are not ready made, so you'll have to write some scripts.Anything that supports high availability or ease of deployment in a highly available environment would help to improve this solution.The machine learning is not included in the free version. It is only included in the Platinum or Gold versions. It would be helpful if the machine learning features were available even on the free version of the solution. RSA and IBM are other solutions that also offer machine learning, which is interesting for us, but they cost money.

Pricing and Cost Advice
We have an OEM agreement with Devo. It is very similar to the standard licensing agreement because we are charged in the same way as any other customer, e.g., we use the backroom.I'm not involved in the financial aspect, but I think the licensing costs are similar to other solutions. If all the solutions have a similar cost, Devo provides more for the money.It's a per gigabyte cost for ingestion of data. For every gigabyte that you ingest, it's whatever you negotiated your price for. Compared to other contracts that we've had for cloud providers, it's significantly less.
