Hi, in my opinion, because it is still the best at giving you visibility of what's happening in your IT infrastructure, and at detecting threats.
Visibility and detection may seem simple tasks. but actually, they require a lot of capabilities in understanding, integrating, logging, and alarms from a huge multitude of devices. Such tasks go under the line of log ingestion, normalization, etc., and that is far from easy. QRadar has done a lot of work in that direction.
Another aspect is event correlation. And here, either you write the correlation rules yourself, spending $$$$ of professional services, and by the way, it'll take forever to test, implement and maintain up to date, or your access to a very long list of preset correlation rules, that are already available and waiting to be activated.
Finally, visibility and threat detection is just the beginning of a journey pointed at becoming aware of what's happening in your IT and taking relevant and effective action. There are several other technologies that have to be used to minimize exposure, and contain, and remediate relations to an attack. I believe IBM has a few of those, that can be integrated. But whichever you use at the end of this journey, if the original feed is not correct, not relevant, or not complete, you missed your goal in the first place.My 5 cents :)VS

My advice to others is to shop around because IBM QRadar Advisor with Watson is not for small enterprises, it's aimed at your larger environments that have a multitude of infrastructure and networks that are hybrid across different environments. It integrates into quite a few tools, such as your email system, and file systems. This tool is not for everybody. IBM doesn't have the sort of tool that helps a five, ten, or twenty user environment. This is not advisable to go and invest in the solution. There are other tools that you could possibly look at that do probably some of the functions in terms of monitoring your playbooks and integration points that are a little bit easier to map to. However, that is not a tool for every organization out there. The solution is targeting major enterprises. I rate IBM QRadar Advisor with Watson a seven out of ten. There are quite a few areas they could improve, such as they have a lot of technical manual configs and orchestration could be better.

There are many comparisons and scoring reports like Gartner. But a small part of their scoring is technical capacity. Other comparisons available on the web or magazines are marketing, sales, and presales documents. They do not include extensive technical analysis.

Excellent article. ArcSight claims to use ML - they are not listed under ML here (?).
Can LogRhythm handle your correlation logic example? A simple comparison table would be very useful (features, checkmarks).
@CraigHeartwell, thanks for your spelling correction.
ArcSight acquired Interset for ML. Yes, LogRhythm can handle the logic.
SIEM Comparison table is on my mind for a long time. I published the Turkish version. I need to work to extend it before publishing.
