In the past, when something bad happened to an application, IT ops folks used to log in to the servers to scratch some logs and try to understand what was going on. But in today’s world, that’s not how things are done. Now there are tools that will help you not just to collect logs and other data from systems but also to help you understand the data. Empowered by that data, you’ll be able to analyze, troubleshoot, and—most importantly—make better decisions on how to fix problems in applications.
Splunk is one of the first platforms to help make sense of log data. Splunk is not just a tool for IT Ops. It’s a tool for developers. In fact, it’s a tool for everyone who’s interested in using the power of data. There are a lot of use cases for Splunk, but first, you need to learn what it’s capable of and how to get the most of it.
If you have concerns about security and compliance, don’t worry. You can still be compliant while making life easier with Splunk. You’ll just need to give everyone visibility on what’s happening with your applications in real time or for analysis purposes. And yes—you can do all of this without giving people access to the servers.
Splunk is playing a big role in how organizations make better decisions with meaningful data. Let’s take advantage of it!
