Cons
They do not have all the features that I expect right now.Splunk would be better if some tools were integrated to be able to take action on security or network concerns.The cost needs to be re-examined. It's extremely expensive to run. It's also expensive to expand. That's the number one complaint all of my customers have when it comes to Splunk. It's way too expensive compared to other solutions.It would be useful if they provided some help pages. If you don't know too much about the tool, there should be more documentation readily available. It would be useful if they had a help button embedded in the solution so you could ask questions and get answers.It does not have a user-friendly interface and it is difficult to use.This solution is difficult to configure and the instructions are complex.I would like to see an improvement and some innovation in the customer interface.The solution should have more sensors regarding fiber intelligence for security measures.

It could use a URL document server. Everything in the market is moving towards automation and everybody's looking for the single click operations as well relational data locality.They could make it more easy to plug-in data so that a nontechnical person will be able to use it, like accountants or finance people. That way they don't have to ask us.The implementation is a long process that should be improved.In the new version, I would love to see more prediction capabilities. It would be great if one could see the alerts get a little more enriched with information and become more human-friendly instead of the technical stuff that they put in there. I think those would be really awesome outcomes to get.I would like to see more out-of-the-box dashboards for in-depth application monitoring of standard products that are out there.I would like to see integration with Kubernetes cluster and APIs so that you can manage the entire stack.
