Cons
DMC should be a little more intuitive with better dashboarding. Seeing the cause of data flow can be tough to track down.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.​

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.
