Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The most valuable aspect for me is having real-time data.""The tool's interface is easy to use. The functions listed as a part of the menu items are easy to use.""Sigma is a great software for non-technical business users. If someone's familiar with pivot tables or Excel or Google Sheets, they should be able to pick up Sigma pretty quickly. There is a very low bar for onboarding."

"As compared to other tools, it is very easy. It is very easy to learn. It also integrates well.""I like the fact that we do not have to maintain all the cloud infrastructure. That is probably the main thing about the Splunk Cloud Platform.""For my current requirements, the tool theme seems to be meeting my requirements, from a cost and requirements perspective.""We haven't had any limitations or problems connecting to our network devices.""The solution is user friendly and has extensive uses.""Splunk Cloud's most valuable features are log aggregations, dashboarding, business management, reporting, and business controls. Additionally, it has awesome indexing and the solution is always improving""Splunk helped reduce our mean time to resolve by around 60%.""It's made searching for data easier. Users like it. We're still in the migration process, but overall, it's a lot easier to use."

Cons
"I would like to see better visualization options. That would allow me to build out more visually pleasing dashboarding in Sigma.""The only minor area for improvement lies in handling highly complex visualizations.""The product's roadmap regarding introducing new features in the solution or new versions of the tool can be made better in the future."

More Sigma Cons →

"The pricing model makes the product costly.""The search for bulk data needs to be improved. When we were looking for the flow, we had to search really hard. I wanted to request the Splunk team to add some features for better search because getting the flow of the bulk data was sometimes hard.""When one of my customers needs an app, and I am able to find that app on the Splunk base, I have to create a ticket and wait for five days for them to download the app into the cloud environment. That is probably one of the main things. It is painful because I have to wait to get that app in the cloud.""Splunk Cloud Platform should improve its integrations and consider multiple integrations or direct integration with other platforms like Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, or AWS.""They can streamline the process of creating custom apps.""Customization could be simplified.""I have not come across anything that I would consider missing as such. If anything, sometimes we have dashboards that would not go into the dark mode. It is a minor issue, but it is the only thing that I wish was there. The dark mode would definitely help.""In the case of knowledge objects, even a Splunk admin does not have access to delete them. If we want to remove a knowledge object, we need to contact Splunk support and raise a case. After that, they delete it. They should give us access to delete knowledge objects."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The retail price is set at one thousand dollars per creator per year."
  • More Sigma Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The licensing is based on the amount of data that we send to the cloud on a daily basis."
  • "The price is something that people complain about."
  • "The licensing costs depend on the state of your environment and the fees are paid on a monthly basis."
  • "The pricing model makes this an expensive solution."
  • "There are additional features that you would need to purchase depending on your use case."
  • "The cost of using Splunk Cloud Platform is high, but the value it provides is worth the investment."
  • "I am familiar with the pricing and licensing model a little bit. I am not sure about the particulars of the actual price that we have, but I do like the idea of going towards a more CPU-based approach rather than the ingest approach because it allows us the ability to ingest more data if we need it."
  • "It is a touchy subject because we are locked into it. That goes back to the rehydrating data. We cannot have the retention that we want to store for legal and compliance purposes because that is seven years' worth of data for some of the indexes, so we ship them off into S3 buckets and install them there, at which point they are invisible to Splunk, so we have to rehydrate them, but we cannot rehydrate those pockets into Splunk Cloud. We have to rehydrate them into a self-hosted version of Splunk, which can take days to set up and get going. I would not call Splunk's licensing and pricing predatory, but they have made it very difficult to maintain the independence of your own data."
