"It is very easy to configure because we are using an agent-less version. You can very quickly implement a collector for monitoring device servers."
"The additional vendors we've brought on board, particularly the elastic, have been quite beneficial."
"The reporting aspect is good and it does what I need it to do."
"The feature that I have found most valuable with Splunk is the ability to sift through a bunch of data very quickly."
"The Splunk user community and forum are most valuable."
"The initial setup isn't overly complex."
"It's basically one of the best SIEM products on the market."
"The solution has proven to be quite stable."
"The ability to ingest different log types from many different products in our environment is most valuable."
"It doesn't have the complete application-level topology. It could have service topology and business service monitoring. I would like to see how business service monitoring will function with agent-based installation, and how flexible and business-oriented it is for service modeling and service infrastructure. I have a lot of experience in using business service monitoring, service topology, and service hierarchy functionalities in similar products from BMC and Micro Focus (OpenView), and I want to see how these functionalities will look like in ScienceLogic."
"Splunk could be improved by reducing the cost. The cost is one of the biggest challenges for us in keeping to our production requirements."
"Our two main complaints are about the difficulty of the initial setup and the licensing model."
"Being a SIEM solution with a centralized dashboard, we would like to have more options to customize it."
"The complexity could be worked on so that it's even easier and faster."
"From the commercial point of view, they have to bring down their costs."
"Could be more user friendly."
"It's difficult to set up initially, and their billing model is also a bit complicated."
"The implementation and the scanning of the logs can be difficult."
