This May, Qlik Qonnections, the premierBI conference, was held in Orlando, Florida. Steve Rimar, CEO & Founder of Analytica Consulting presented: Big Data Analytics with Qlik & Splunk to over 140 conference attendees.
What is Spunk? Splunk is generally used as a machine data/log analytics platform and has a powerful search index that can hold massive amounts of information. This can be web server logs, device logs from millions/billions of users, etc. One thing it lacks is the visualization and interactivity available in the Qlik product suite. Steve’s presentation on the Splunk Connector, covered how to integrate the two technologies to create a world-class solution for analyzing big data on top of log files with Qlik.
