Mainframes generate large volumes of data. CDP was built to optimize and format that data for Splunk ingestion. By using the advanced data management system, you are now able to filter and stream exactly what your enterprise requires.
• Curate Operational Data: customize and develop specific data streams using record calculations.
• Record Level Filtering: only send records that meet your specific conditions.
• Field Level Filtering: only send parts of the record needed in the target.
The extensibility of CDP allows you to add and extend existing data, including 3rd party and proprietary sources, all without the need for code updates.
