Description of Splunk
Splunk was founded to pursue a disruptive new vision: make machine data accessible, usable and valuable to everyone. Machine data is one of the fastest growing and most pervasive segments of “big data”—generated by websites, applications, servers, networks, mobile devices and all the sensors and RFID assets that produce data every second of every day. By monitoring and analyzing everything from customer clickstreams and transactions to network activity and call records—and more—Splunk turns machine data into valuable insights no matter what business you’re in. It’s what we call Operational Intelligence. According to IDC, unstructured data, much of it generated by machines, accounts for more than 90% of the data in today’s organizations.
Splunk focuses specifically on the challenges and opportunities of effectively managing this type of data, helping organizations unlock the largely untapped value hidden within. That’s why many organizations now consider Splunk their platform for machine data. Splunk Enterprise collects, monitors, indexes and analyzes machine data whether it’s generated by IT systems or infrastructure, sensors in a manufacturing facility, RFID tags on sensitive assets or events from mechanical or security systems.
