Case Studies

On-Demand Expert Services at Vizient

Vizient is using Splunk for a variety of IT Ops and Security use cases. Vizient's Splunk administrator is responsible for Splunk as well as a few other systems. While the admin is very a skilled Splunker, he doesn't have much time to spend working on Splunk because he has to juggle all of his responsibilities.

Vizient engaged with Conducive's On-Demand Expert Services to support their Splunk admin for the following reasons:

  • 1
     Support the admin when performing infrequent tasks. 
  • 2
     Provide expert level answers to configuration and architecture questions.
  • 3
    Support admin when executing tasks to reduce the time the admin spends working on Splunk
  • 4
    To bridge the gap between Splunk's PS and the desire to have on-demand or as-needed support and services.

The Splunk admin has been able to efficiently manage Splunk, allowing him to also spend time on his other responsibilities.

Vizient's Splunk environment adheres to Splunk's best practices and has been running smoothly since Vizient started working with Splunk.

- Semiconductor Company located in Austin, TX

On-Demand Expert Services at Austin based Semiconductor Company

A semiconductor company headquartered in Austin, TX has been using Splunk for IT monitor and security. The sole Splunk admin was transitioning to a new role leaving a team of new Splunk admins responsible for maintaining Splunk. The company was concerned about maintaining continuity and support during and after the transition to the new Splunk admins.

To ensure the new admins had the proper support and someone to talk to when they had questions, the semiconductor company engaged with Conducive's On-Demand Expert Services team.

Using ODES, the original admin received help and guidance when doing some clean up tasks such as migrating to a clustered environment and implementing SSL on the forwarders. Furthermore, the new Splunk admin team has support and guidance for any issues that arise or any questions they may have.

Benefits

Because Conducive works with a large number of Splunk users, rare is common to us. There isn't much we haven't seen or done in the Splunk world. Instead of spending time searching for answers, your admin can leverage our experience to efficiently manage Splunk.
