Splunk® for Big Data Analytics

Turn massive machine data into real-time operational intelligence



Big Data Comes from Machines

All your applications, sensors, systems, web servers and other technology infrastructure generate data every millisecond of every day. This machine data is one of the fastest growing, most complex areas of big data. It’s also one of the most valuable, containing a definitive record of user transactions, customer behavior, sensor activity, machine behavior, security threats, fraudulent activity and more. Making use of machine data is hard. It’s generated by a multitude of disparate sources in unstructured formats. That makes it difficult to fit into brittle pre-defined schemas. Organizations are challenged to ingest, process and analyze machine data using traditional data management methods or in a timely manner. Traditional business intelligence, data warehouse or analytics solutions are simply not engineered for this class of high-volume, dynamic and unstructured data.




Splunk: the Platform for Big Data Analytics

Splunk software helps you unlock the hidden value of this data. And with the ability to bring in insights from your other tools, you can get value from the full spectrum of your data, not just a sub-set. Now you can collect, index, search, analyze and visualize all your data in one place. Splunk provides a unified way to organize and extract real-time insights from massive amounts of machine data from virtually any source.
