Inc. (NASDAQ:SPLK), provider of the leading software platform for
real-time Operational Intelligence, and Syncsort, a global leader in
high-performance big data software, today announced a technical alliance
to unlock insights from machine data generated by mainframe systems, a
critical and major source of corporate data. The alliance enables
organizations to search, analyze and visualize massive streams of
mainframe data, with the simplicity, scalability and efficiency of
Splunk® Enterprise and Splunk Cloud. This alliance also enables joint
customers to correlate mainframe data with data across the enterprise to
gain broader Operational Intelligence for the organization.
Joint customers include top Fortune 500 telcos, retailers, insurance,
healthcare and financial organizations, which rely heavily on mainframes
for critical business operations and have long been challenged to
leverage mainframe data for valuable business insights. The alliance

mainframe log data, such as Systems Management Facilities (SMF) records
and mainframe application data into Splunk Enterprise and Splunk Cloud
platforms for correlation and analysis.

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes.
In his session at DevOps Summit, Michael Demmer, VP of Engineering at Jut, will discuss how this can...

The basic integration architecture, as defined by ESBs, hasn’t changed for more than a decade. Most cloud integration providers still rely on an ESB architecture and their proprietary connectors. As a result, enterprise integration projects suffer from constraints of availability and reliability of these connectors that are not re-usable across other integration vendors. However, the rapid adoption of APIs and almost ubiquitous availability of APIs amongst most SaaS and Cloud applications are ra...

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands.
