Pricing and Cost Advice
Splunk's cost is very high. They need to review the pricing. They have to go back and totally readdress the market.It's a little bit expensive for a small to medium enterprise.I think the price could be improved.I am not personally involved with the pricing of the solution.Some of the insights that we have obtained as a part of using Splunk have greatly helped us in increasing our revenue in terms of selling our products.The pricing seems good relative to the other vendors that we have had here. However, they need to find ways to be more flexible with the licensing and be able to deal with situations where we start generating more logs. Maybe having some controls in the Splunk interface to turn it off, so we don't have to change anything in our application.We have had a reduction in the time it takes to resolve issues and correlate what has failed.It would be nice if the pricing were cheaper. However, we did purchase it.
