Quotes From Members Comparing Splunk vs Yellowfin

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pricing and Cost Advice
Setup cost is cheap: It is free, it is user-friendly, and it is fast.I would highly recommend anyone evaluating this option to download the free trial which allows for the ingestion of 500MB of data per day in order to get a feel for what Splunk does at its core. It will get pricey once your ingestion rates start to sky rocket, but I would consider it expensive given the amount of information that it allows you to analyze and react on straight out-of-the-box.ROI is estimated at saving my team roughly 10 to 12 man hours per week in troubleshooting for our company as well as what our profits had been from our services of installing, configuring, and supporting other clients with the product.While licensing can be a concern, there are ways to reduce the licensing costs including filtering some events.Pricing is pretty fair.Splunk licensing model might seem expensive but with all the gain in functionalities you will have compared to traditional SIEM solutions I think it’s worth the price.You will eat up whatever you purchase quickly. The level of insights that Splunk empowers is addictive.Splunk Enterprise becomes extremely expensive after the 20GB/month license.
