Keep tabs on the health of applications, and proactively remedy before an application stops responding.

When monitoring response times for several cloud applications, IT is alerted to the fact that one remote office is taking much longer to access their sales CRM than others. Beyond the application itself, there are a number of reasons why this could occur – bandwidth, server or network issues, perhaps even a DDoS attack. With visibility across the entire environment, Splunk is able to pinpoint the problem in real-time, enabling IT to take action before further impacts occur.

Splunk Graphic Monitoring Visibility

Configure Splunk with data-gathering sensors to monitor and maintain production in a factory environment.

Splunk is being used by a mining company to deliver predictive maintenance capability through real-time data gathered from their factory infrastructure. Using sensors attached to their conveyor belt, IT are able to immediately identify interruptions or abnormal results in the data being captured, alerting IT to an issue such as a faulty conveyor belt – before production is impacted.

Splunk Graphic Anomaly

Analyse ERP data to track down, and put a stop to, fraudulent activity.

An engineering company providing equipment and assets to mining, oil and gas companies needed to reduce their risk exposure by implementing preventive and detective capabilities. Splunk was used to uncover anomalies that would otherwise have gone undetected, such as duplicate transactions, write-off of assets, and indefinite rent. In this scenario, Splunk can be configured to not only track down past issues, it can also be set up to alert IT instantly of any suspicious activity.

Splunk Incident Investigation

Ensure a friction-free user experience for employees using VPNs.

The extension of the corporate network via VPNs presents very real security and visibility concerns as the volume of employees working from home continues to increase. Splunk addresses these challenges by providing granular detail on network demands: from the number of concurrent video conferences, to the files being accessed, and the usage of collaboration apps, the solution allows IT to maintain a secure and seamless end user experience at all times.

Find answers to vital questions in a fraction of the time.

A small transport business found themselves unable to quickly locate information around business-critical security and IT operations. With every question posed, they were forced to dig around multiple locations to find the answer. By consolidating all their data into a single repository, Splunk has drastically reduced the amount of time and effort required to answer pressing operational questions.
