Splunk brings machine data analytics to mobile with iOS app

11/07/2014 by


The explosion of information coming from connected devices is dominating the analytics discussion today, but in all the talk about exploiting machine-generated transmissions, surprisingly little attention is being given to the growing amount of data getting funneled back into the Internet of Things for mobile consumption. The proliferation of smartphones and tablets in the enterprise, after all, didn’t occur in a vacuum.

But the number of headlines is hardly proportional to the fast expanding list of vendors that are embracing that new reality. The latest to join the club is log processing stalwart Splunk, which has just launched a new mobile application aimed at allowing users to dig into the operational details that underlie business activity even when they’re outside the office.

The aptly named Splunk Mobile App serves as a local client that provides access to the core functionality in the company’s flagship platform through a specially-built  server agent which handles most of the computational heavy lifting. It’s the latter that is the central link in the chain, acting as an intermediary between the user’s mobile device and their company’s Splunk Enterprise deployment. It converts dashboards produced in the environment from the native SimpleXML into a more mobile-friendly format and checks for notifications which, if found, are promptly pushed down to the end-point without any human intervention.
