Real-time reporting has become a paradigm for most industries and yet, it is accompanied by overwhelming challenges. From dynamic data collection to data reporting, the traditional reporting methods have failed in terms of providing accurate results to organizations. Data integrity is another challenge when considering real-time reporting and analysis. Traditional monitoring and analysis tools aren’t designed to handle variety, velocity, volume or variability of such dynamic data. Unfortunately, many such problems don’t manifest until the final reporting phase.
However, real-time data processing has much to offer the modern business model. It is prolific in providing real-time insights hidden in your data that often go unnoticed and are constructive for savvy decision-making.
So if traditional methods don’t ease your data chagrin then what will? The answer is Splunk. This leads us to another question. What is Splunk? Let me answer this in brief.
Search, monitor, and analyze

Being a Splunk technology alliance partner, we have explored the capabilities of Splunk. It is a tool that offers operational intelligence to collect, search, analyze, visualize, monitor, and access dynamic data.
