Why does your business need Splunk? Today, data is the driving force for any form of business. But on its own, data does not have much value. This is why data needs to be processed. But, processing the vast amount of machine data poses several constraints such as storage and processing power. The computational power and storage capacity afforded today has transformed the way businesses carry out their operations. Software such as Splunk has enabled users to truly utilize the potential of data. Splunk Integration into your business model makes data readable by producing insights in the form of visualizations. Whether you are assessing a security breach, carrying out day-to-day operations or understanding customer behavior, Splunk allows you to perform all these actions.
What is Splunk?
Data is all around us, constantly being generated from devices, applications, websites and networks. Customer trends and behaviors are concealed in this vast amount of data. On its own, raw data does not have value. Splunk provides value to data by transforming it into comprehensive visualizations displayed on a dashboard. But that is not all! Splunk stores and manages real-time data by indexing it with a time stamp. It allows easy retrieval of data and provides insights in the form of visualizations. The reporting tool offered by Splunk monitors incoming data in real time and alerts the user in cases of unusual activity. This is why Splunk provides value in maintaining network security, assessing risks and managing operations, all of which is done in real-time. This makes it an essential component in almost any business. Integrating Splunk with your business allows you to monitor, search, analyze and report the data that you feed to it. Because data is stored in real time either on the cloud or on hardware, you can access it and gain insights from it instantaneously.
