Pros
For the system environment, SiteScope can be useful.The product's ability to monitor systems and applications and send alerts and create support tickets are the most valuable features of the product.There's no agent you need installed on the servers. In our environment, we have some servers out of our control so we cannot manage them. We use SiteScope to monitor the availability, the resources on the servers, etc. This allows us to do this job without installing agents so there's no need to take care of anything on the server.The Monitor Templates functionality allowed us to spin up monitoring with .csv files pretty easily.

With good domain knowledge, one can build almost anything. If you throw in Alert Manager or an integration with ServiceNow. Then, you have your own SIEMOur clients are easily able to modify and evolve their implementations.The initial setup is really straightforward. It's one of the easiest installations.It helps us uncover bottlenecks in the network.it can explain to management about what kind of traffic is visiting the network. It can also explain other traffic coming in and out, along with protecting against malware.The most valuable feature of Splunk is the log monitoring.It can log more logs than other solutions. It's a good way to troubleshoot problems.We can present to our management in real time the security of the batch management for the PCs, security regarding the network equipment. We're currently working in the Azure Cloud project, so we can send any logs from the cloud to Splunk. We can monitor them and we can present to the managers and customers. It's a very good solution for reporting. We use Splunk for reporting and monitoring of any solution in the company.

Cons
SiteScope isn't productive if you want to monitor RAM or if you want to monitor some URL.It may lack some features other products in the category have like more detailed transaction tracking.Sometimes in a huge environment, I think the documentation does not provide the required calculations so you can't know what the required set up should be. You need to test.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.
