Splunk's early success was based on providing users, for the first time, Google-like search capabilities for their IT infrastructure data. Users, then and now, experience fast payback and dramatic productivity improvements using Splunk to index, search and report across all of their IT data to troubleshoot issues, find root causes, investigate security incidents and report on findings. Some users stop there and are satisfied with a dramatic improvement in diagnosing and fixing problems and getting to the source of security issues.

A growing list of Splunk users has taken the next step to fully-leverage their IT data. Splunk lets them harness their IT data to gain the insights needed to innovate and make informed decisions. With Splunk these users are comparing real-time data against historical trend/baseline/KPI data, enabling them to respond quickly and effectively to emerging conditions. With end-to-end visibility and new operational insights these users monitor and improve service levels, reduce operations costs, mitigate security risks, enable compliance and create new product and service offerings. Splunk is fundamentally changing how these organizations monitor, secure and audit their physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures. We call this delivering Operational Intelligence.
