The massive amounts of unstructured data that is generated by machines cannot be handled by the rigid multidimensional databases that are currently in vogue. But, this gargantuan amount of information needs to be harnessed, for inside all that data lies answers to critical questions and also the key to unlocking untapped value and potential hidden within.
That's why SaaS service provider, Ceryx, which generates an enormous amount of machine data every second of every day, began using Splunk (News - Alert) software, which according to officials, helped the company achieve an incredible ROI of 200 percent almost immediately.
Splunk Enterprise customers typically achieve an ROI measured in weeks or months, sometimes even before deploying Splunk software into production. It is a fully featured, powerful platform that collects, monitors, indexes and analyzes machine data, regardless of where it is generated, zeroes in on relevant information, automates workflows and identifies security threats many times faster than the traditional methods.
Ceryx customers are protected from spam and illicit e-mail with Splunk's popular e-mail firewall service that helped monitor e-mail flow and also trace messages. As a result the effort required and time taken to track messages has reduced considerably. This has not only improved response times but also simplified compliance reporting.
In addition, because of automation, the company reported that it has reduced the training time and also time taken for security tasks. Senior staff can focus on more important things as the tasks that they were entrusted with previously, could now be performed adequately by junior staff.
“Splunk software has been instrumental in helping us control operating costs while still keeping up with growth,” said Derek Mock, director of software development, Ceryx, in a statement. “Splunk makes compliance and operational reporting not only practical, but almost trivial through new automation.”
The versatility and agility of the Splunk platform is what makes many organizations now consider Splunk for analyzing machine data. More than 4,800 enterprises, universities, government agencies and service providers in over 80 countries use Splunk Enterprise to improve service and uptime, reduce cost and mitigate cyber-security risk.
Splunk Inc., the software platform for real-time operational intelligence, announced that Snap Interactive, Inc., a leading social application developer, is utilizing Splunk software to foster key business decisions and quickly uncover insights into user behavior and engagement. With Splunk software, Snap Interactive can make key decisions faster and better engage its users.
