Save money on a Splunk Enterprise licence - helping you to optimise your organisational performance, identify threats, and provide real-time insights into your infrastructure and services by automating the collection, indexing and alerting of your machine data.
Many of our member organisations have recognised the potential value of Splunk, an analytics platform which – among other use cases – helps you to get a clearer overview of your IT environment and identify security threats and vulnerabilities.
But to make the most of Splunk in research and education, it needs to come at a price you can afford. So, to help you make the business case for the platform, we have worked with Splunk to offer significant savings on Splunk Enterprise licensing.
By offering cost-effective access to Splunk, we hope to make it easier for more organisations to benefit from its potential efficiencies – while using the power of the Jisc community to share knowledge, and discover and develop more use cases.
How does the service help my organisation?
Our service offers the following benefits:
Better visibility over ‘big data’
With Splunk Enterprise, you can turn large amounts of machine data into useful insights that help you manage your organisation more efficiently.
From the point of view of an IT team, for example, Splunk Enterprise can improve visibility of your IT environment by highlighting security issues and allowing you to manage your IT estate efficiently.
Use cases can also extend beyond IT security. Splunk Enterprise can help you analyse machine data across a wide range of business platforms throughout your organisation.
A cost-effective solution
In addition to fantastic savings on Splunk Enterprise licences for the education and research sector, we have also negotiated free access to Splunk training courses which would usually be offered as a paid-for service.
A pathway to implementation
To help you implement Splunk Enterprise, we can offer access to third-party professional services. This add-on service can help you to get up to speed with Splunk so that you can start making the most of it more quickly, delivering more value back into the organisation.
The power of the Jisc community
Using the power of the Jisc community we will work with you to develop Splunk user groups and tools for the research and education sector.
We plan to offer access to an app with a set of pre-built dashboards and reports for Jisc members – enabling you to easily get started with common education use cases.
