Cons
It needs to improve the way to install third-party apps and enable installation without logging into splunk.com.I think the machine learning should be emphasized.

A SIEM solution, like Splunk, needs an improved data mining solution, artificial intelligence.Missing capability for audio/video and image processing.While scheduled reports can be embedded, Splunk dashboard can not be embedded directly without enabling cross origin.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.
