Customers often begin their journey of gaining operational intelligence with an open source platform as the barrier to entry is low. But as the monitoring or analytics teams find more use cases they run into several problems:
- Security use cases may not be supported
- Broad integration ecosystem may be missing
- Community-based support makes it difficult to commit to SLAs
- Managing large-scale deployment costs more time & money
So, as the analytics journey of Enterprises mature and customers realize the need to migrate from ElasticSearch, customers often find that their “sunk” investment in ElasticSearch to be a major impediment to migration to Splunk.
