Machine Generated Data: Unlock the Big Data Value

Today's IT systems and technology infrastructure generate data every second of every day. This machine data is one of the fastest growing segments of big data. Splunk provides a comprehensive view of all user behaviors, service levels, cybersecurity risks, fraudulent activities and more. As more sophisticated questions emerge, the need to combine this data with a variety of data from multiple data sources becomes critical in extracting real, actionable information and insight. Insights that can optimize applications, processes and systems' behavior, detect and prevent fraud and intrusions. Simplifying and reducing the time to access and explore these multiple data sources becomes critical.
