"When it comes to features, the power pack is the most valuable."
"It is simple."
"Provides agentless monitoring so there's no need to install the agent on each server."
"The power flow is great."
"I'm satisfied with ScienceLogicfor for what they can offer today because they can offer both serverless connectivity and agent connectivity."
"It has good monitoring capabilities across cloud environments, data centers, and hybrid environments."
"The best feature is the highly flexible graphs."
"The most valuable features of ScienceLogic are AI and machine learning."
"The flexibility of the search capability is most valuable. You can use it for more than just a basic log aggregator. It is powerful in that regard."
"It provides a lot of analytics with the underlying AI engine, and it is a lot easier than other solutions. There are some products that do automated AI-based detection and drawing up charts, but for network monitoring and all of the monitoring aspects, it is quite a nice tool. It is very convenient for business users because they get more or less a lot of data readily available. If you're familiar with the Splunk query language, you can pretty much do whatever you want."
"Great platform with user-friendly interface and GUI."
"The correlation capabilities are the first value that our clients say they like with Splunk."
"Splunk works based on parsing log files."

"ScienceLogic could improve the implementation, it could be made easier."
"We want to understand: how does the back end work? What if some problem occurs? What we can do? They need to provide more information."
"ScienceLogic does not have application monitoring. We definitely need something integrated within ScienceLogic to monitor applications so that we don't have to rely on monitoring tools to monitor other applications. At least the ones that are market leaders, such as SAP, Oracle, and others."
"From a performance perspective, it needs to improve a lot."
"There are often bugs in new releases."
"They need a little more self-service."
"It was challenging onboarding users."
"It needs integration with a configuration management solution."
"Splunk is more expensive than other solutions."
"Splunk needs to be able to hold more days of data. At the moment it only holds three months of data."
"The documentation is in definite need of improvement."
"The configuration had a bit of a learning curve."
"We find that the maintenance process could be a lot better."
"Its reporting can be improved. That's the only complaint I have heard. I don't need the reporting part, but I know that other people in the organization need it."
"I would like to see more SIEM functionality and a better ticket tool."
