Last updated: September 26, 2017
Platfora's Big Data Discovery and Analytics platform is the only end-to-end solution native on Hadoop + Spark. Know everything your big data is telling you with the platform that gives you everything. Platfora brings together traditionally separate tools—data prep, in-memory acceleration, BI, analytics, and visualization—to streamline big data analytics and simplify data discovery.
We make machine data accessible, usable and valuable to everyone—no matter where it comes from. You see servers and devices, apps and logs, traffic and clouds. We see data—everywhere. Splunk offers the leading platform for Operational Intelligence. It enables the curious to look closely at what others ignore—machine data—and find what others never see: insights that can help make your company more productive, profitable, competitive and secure.
Platfora vs Splunk in our news:
2017 - Splunk expands machine learning capabilities across platform
Cloud monitoring provider Splunk is enhancing machine learning capabilities to make it easier to surface the data that’s most critical. The Splunk Machine Learning Toolkit has several new key features designed for the DIYers. First of all, there is a new data cleaning tool to get the data ready for the model. Next, there are machine learning APIs to import open source and proprietary algorithms and apply them in Splunk. Finally, there is a machine learning management component to integrate user permissions directly from Splunk into custom machine learning applications. For those who would prefer Splunk to do some of the work for them, there are also new goodies including Splunk ITSI 3.0, which uses machine learning to help identify issues and prioritize them based on how critical a given operation is to the business. So we may assume that Splunk becomes more intelligent if compared vs Datadog
2016 - Splunk unveiled 300 machine learning algorithms for Operational Intelligence
Operational Intelligence platform provider Splunk has expanded in a significant way the early version of machine learning in its platform to deliver new services and capabilities. It has added machine learning to the core of its platform with a machine learning toolkit that can be installed as a free app on top of the Splunk Enterprise platform. This toolkit provides 300 algorithms for machine learning, 27 of which are pre-packaged out of the box and focus on such categories as clustering, recommendations, regression, classification and text analytics. Splunk has also enhanced the machine learning in its IT Service Intelligence (ITSI) platform it introduced this time last year.
2015 - Big Data analytics platform Platfora scores $30M
Platfora, a company that helps customers process and make sense of big data, announced a $30 million investment today. Platfora has been designed to work with big data (petabyte or larger) on a variety of platforms including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Hadoop. It helps business analysts make sense of a variety of data sets without the help of data scientists or IT. At a basic level Platfora does three things: it prepares the data for analysis. It then processes the data in an in-memory database and perhaps most importantly it provides a visualization layer for business analysts and others to view the data in meaningful ways. Once IT has set up the platform, users can get to work exploring. The data prep and processing happens in the background as the analyst points to different sources to build a set of data they wish to work with. Once that process is complete, they can view the data in various ways in charts and graphs as you would expect.
2015 - Splunk acquired machine learning startup Caspida
Cloud monitoring provider Splunk has purchased Caspida, the startup that uses machine learning techniques to help identify cyber-secruity threats from inside and outside the company. Splunk helps companies deal with the onslaught of machine data coming from IT systems using data science techniques and automation to make sense of it. The company has a security product called Splunk App For Enterprise Security. With this purchase, Splunk is adding a new tool to its security arsenal to beef up the ability to locate threats using the machine learning techniques that Caspida has developed. It can apply data science to look more closely at the usage of every person using the system, even if they appear to be a valid user with proper credentials. Splunk’s general approach is a solution that is data science driven, that provides automated detection and uses machine learning to get smarter over time.
2013 - Splunk launches Splunk Cloud
Splunk, the leading software platform for real-time operational intelligence, announced the general availability of Splunk Cloud - a new service that delivers Splunk Enterprise in the cloud. Organizations can now access Splunk Cloud to gain visibility and operational insights into their machine-generated big data in the cloud, as well as correlate this data across their cloud and on-premises environments. With the introduction of Splunk Cloud for large-scale production environments, Splunk Storm, the cloud-based service introduced last year, will significantly expand its free developer offerings to 20GB of total storage per month. Splunk Cloud is powered by Amazon Web Services, includes access to all features of Splunk Enterprise platform including apps, APIs, alerting and role-based access controls..
