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.

platforms for correlation and analysis.
