Splunk announced enhancements to Splunk’s modern portfolio for IT Operations and to its portfolio for real-time observability for cloud infrastructures and microservices.

Enhancements to IT Operations include new versions of Splunk IT Service Intelligence (ITSI), Splunk App for Infrastructure (SAI), and integrations with Splunk VictorOps and Splunk Phantom.

Organizations that are in the cloud, on-premises or hybrid can use Splunk ITSI to get a unified view across organizational silos, and predict and prevent problems in order to deliver exceptional customer experiences.

Packaged with Splunk ITSI, Splunk App for Infrastructure 2.0 (SAI) enhancements include VMware vSphere Monitoring, multi-cloud monitoring (beta) and enhanced monitoring for Windows, Unix and Linux, providing customers with monitoring. troubleshooting and alerting across both physical and virtual environments.

Additionally, enhanced integrations and new ML-capabilities from Splunk VictorOps intelligently routes alerts to the right on-call teams for even faster problem resolution, enhanced cross-team collaboration, and seamlessly integrates with the Splunk Data-to-Everything Platform bridging IT Operations and observability.

With the acquisitions of SignalFx, a leader in real-time observability for cloud infrastructure and microservices, and Omnition, an innovator in open-source distributed tracing, Splunk provides a best-in-class portfolio for real-time observability of cloud-native environments. Splunk’s observability portfolio enables DevOps teams to process metrics, traces and logs with AI-driven analytics that enable deeper insights into critical systems in seconds.

Splunk is announcing:

- Integration between SignalFx and Splunk Cloud. With built-in deep linking capabilities from SignalFx to Splunk Cloud, DevOps and observability teams can seamlessly go from problem detection to root cause by leveraging metrics, traces and logs without context switching.

- Integration of SignalFx and VictorOps to reduce mean time to detect and streamline remediation. With real-time alerts from SignalFx and ML-driven Suggested Responders from VictorOps, problems are automatically routed to the right on-call teams based on previous similar incidents.

- Splunk Investigate, a collaborative, cloud-native solution for investigation across multiple data sources and with reliable scalability and zero administration.

“As organizations evolve, they move farther away from a manufacturing model of specialization, and silos will be broken down, particularly between DevOps and IT Ops. Teams will have to get better at reacting to speed and complexity,” said Fitz. “We are excited to deliver innovative, data-driven solutions that provide real-time insights into our customers’ entire technology stack and application lifecycle, for every kind of IT organization, anywhere in their journey of transformation.”
