Cons
Direct integration with an SMS gateway for sending critical alerts to the support SME. This will help customer investing in third party middleware solutions for SMS.They have not kept up with browser security requirements or advances in GUIs, they switched to a corruptible database architecture instead of text config files.They should provide more templates for new vendor devices.It could be more reliable using a database repository instead of a log repository.Full application functionality available via the API. There are some functions you can perform managing monitors, that are only available through the UI.More out of the box Cloud integration and capabilities.

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.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.Custom visualizations are real hard. While the default visualizations are good, creating enhanced visualizations are complex.Configuring a few apps is complex, not straightforward.​Not even Splunk's support guy, who came to our firm, could help with defining proper role management.​Make it easier to include roles and user controls, as it is horrible now.

Pricing and Cost Advice
SiteScope licensing can be node based-or monitor-based. I would recommend for node-based licensing.You have to pay for their "solution templates". Other tools do not charge you for knowledge-based monitoring bundles.Depending on your requirements, there are two licensing models available. A simple point model, or an endpoint model.

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.The licensing model can be expensive, but the value it provides is significant.Be upfront about your needs and expectations. Splunk is great to work with.
