IT operations analytics (ITOA) is often a primary case that companies strive to address in order to lower costs and increase efficiency. One banking and financial services firm was struggling to do just that.
After selecting Splunk Enterprise for IT monitoring and analytics, they found streaming real-time performance log data, or “machine” data, from the mainframe was a serious challenge. Given the track record of success in the industry, Syncsort Ironstream was the easy choice. After implementation, they were efficiently able to forward up to 100GB of z/OS log data from 13 LPARs to the Splunk platform in real-time, allowing for a multitude of performance and business results to follow.
