I wasn't there when the evaluation was done. When I came on board, this product was handed down to me, and we have not evaluated any other solutions or products since then. View full review »

DevOps Engineer at Amplify
There are a lot of vendors in the space at the conference this year. Therefore, we probably talked to six or seven different ones, and the market seems to be consolidating. The market's metrics and log monitoring all seem to be rolling up into a single provider. It looks like that is what will be happening in the next few years. Right now, there are a ton of different smaller providers doing little pieces of this and that. All the big players, like Splunk, New Relic, and Datadog, seem to be rolling them all up into one offering. View full review »

CTO at IHS Markit
We knew we were going to go with Splunk. It was the leader and the one we liked. We didn't consider any others since Splunk met our needs. We chose Splunk because of the ease of the UI, querying, and creating dashboards. It has a standardized query language, which a lot of the IT staff were already familiar with it. It was the market leader from our prospective for our needs. View full review »

Application Engineer at Expedia
We looked at the Elk Stack, Kibana, and Sumo Logic. We chose Splunk because their cost is better, the maintenance factor is a little higher, and the core functionality is higher than what other products provide. The core functionality is out-of-the-box. E.g., with a Toyota Scion, you can customize the parts to make it whatever you want, but it's a lot of work to get there. Where if you buy a Cadillac, you pay the Cadillac's price, but it's a Cadillac. It will work right out-of-the-box. View full review »

We evaluated Alert Logic and Splunk. We still use both products heavily. We have different use cases for the products. At first, Splunk was free, so we started to take more advantage of it. View full review »
Omar Sánchez (Mr.Tech)
Information Security Advisor, CISO & CIO, Docutek Services at Docutek Services
We were using QRadar as a POC. We were using for real at our cloud but also it was a POC for us because we were watching the product. But, QRadar needs a lot of fine tuning. View full review »

Roman Burdakov
Engineering Manager at Cengage Learning
I would consider ELK Kibana a competitor for this solution. If you have time, and you want to do it yourself, you can save a little money going with Kibana. However, Splunk is pretty good and I would recommend an enterprise to switch to Splunk. View full review »

We considered Datadog and Zabbix. In comparison to those options, Splunk has virtual visualization. Furthermore, it can be a host on our environment. Typically, we cannot deploy SaaS on our environment, but with Splunk, we can. View full review »
