Analytics software provider, Splunk, has released Enterprise 6, the next version of its Big Data application.
Splunk APAC product manager Andy Ho, said there have been more changes made to this single release than in any prior version of Enterprise.
“We’re maturing as a company and we’ve had more resources than ever to put into development,” he said.
The search experience has been refined in Enterprise 6, particularly in the way searches are saved.
“The new search experience that makes it much easier to work with knowledge objects such as dashboards and reports,” Ho said.
Ho adds that the way dashboards are created as also been improved to make them more detailed and robust.
“There are now easier graphical ways of working with the product than having people modify config files or dig into management interfaces,” he said.
Enterprise 6 also comes with improved clustering management for managing distributive clusters.
“Additionally, we worked extensively on improving the management capabilities for the users working on Splunk every day to keep it up and running,” Ho said.
Ho expects Splunk’s significant investment and improvements into its development platform to appeal to the A/NZ market, as well as on a global level.
Over the course of the next six to 12 months, Ho expects to see “a new class of applications” to emerge from the development community for the Splunk platform.
