What is most valuable?

Splunk is extremely flexible, which allows us to create custom visualizations along with other customizations. The flexibility of Splunk as well as the resources available for learning and support are the best in the business.

How has it helped my organization?

Splunk allows us to find insights that we were not able to with traditional BI tools using ETL. It allows us to dig into raw events.

What needs improvement?

The product was designed for security and IT with business intelligence needs, such as PDF exporting, but this has not been the highest priority. While the functionality is there, it could be developed more.
