Splunk has a number of products such as BigData, Cloud solutions, Business Analytics etc. This post is about Splunk's IOT and Industry related product.
Splunk provides software platform for machine data generated by all kinds of devices, controls, sensors; Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition that are already connected and/or going to be connected to enter the IOT era.
Splunk can be used for industrial operations & maintenance, security, analytics, compliance etc.
There are two principal IOT related groups that will be of great interest for businesses to pursue:
  • Industrial Enterprise Systems:
  • Consumer focused devices
The Industrial enterprise managed systems already have legacy applications and heavy equipment and the task is to modify/adopt to IOT using Splunk. More details here.

In the case of consumer related IOT which is new like wearables, smart-home, smartphone devices Splunk can be used to manage and analyze streams of data quite easily. 

More details here:
It is already being used by businesses such as Bosch (Optimizing operations of 'HealthBuddy' appliance); New York Air Brake (Operational insights from train system generated BigData); Kepware connecting Splunk to Industrial data with real-time data streaming);etc.
