Let Splunk and AIOps Solve Your IT Monitoring Woes

In case you missed it, last week SAP partner Splunk announced exciting news for you, an SAP IT administrator. During their well-attended virtual .conf2020 conference, Splunk featured their latest integration with SAP, Splunk Service Intelligence for SAP® solutions. With Service Intelligence for SAP solutions, existing and new Splunk ITSI customers like you can gain a high-level view into the health of your services, as well as a deeper dive into different incidents so you can monitor, triage, resolve and report on mission-critical business services to prevent costly downtimes.

IT Monitoring and SAP

To thrive in the Data Age, organizations like yours need a complete view of your data. With this comes the never-ending challenge of delivering and supporting innovative digital solutions and services, while at the same time supporting your mission-critical systems. When it comes to IT monitoring solutions that support SAP, it can be very difficult to find one which will give you the power, flexibility, scalability and visibility you need to monitor and manage your critical SAP-powered apps and services. Without the right tools, your job of keeping everything running becomes even more difficult and stressful. If the weight of that responsibility rests on your shoulders. Splunk and SAP are here to make it easier for you.

Splunk Service Intelligence for SAP Solutions

Splunk Service Intelligence for SAP solutions makes your life (the SAP IT admin) simpler by giving you the ability to examine your SAP infrastructure more continuously and catch problems before the field engineer is ever impacted. Now your field engineers will be less prone to dealing with outages and other critical issues. For SAP customers who need to meet newer expectations for reliability and performance with their SAP environment, Splunk Service Intelligence for SAP solutions is a premium, out-of-the-box content pack for Splunk IT Service Intelligence (ITSI) , offering predictive analytics to give you end-to-end visibility over the health of your SAP environment.

Splunk Service Intelligence for SAP solutions correlates SAP data (SAP S/4HANA Cloud, S/4HANA, Java at SAP, SAP NetWeaver) with infrastructure data — giving you a complete view into the health of services as well as the ability to quickly dive deeper into investigations, accelerating the time it takes to detect and respond to issues by 80 to 90%, ensuring business continuity and happy customers. Splunk Service Intelligence for SAP solutions is powered by PowerConnect. Available on Splunkbase and SAP Certified, PowerConnect collects both technical and business data from the SAP environment and streams it into Splunk, where it can be correlated with existing infrastructure, app and service data.

Splunk Service Intelligence for SAP solutions offers features for fast time-to-value in monitoring SAP environments through ITSI. Content includes preconfigured KPI base searches, service templates, preconfigured visualizations called glass tables and more. Once installed, the objects within the Splunk Service Intelligence for SAP solutions content pack are completely configurable and, most important, include service templates which make it easy to link existing services to a predefined set of KPIs

Splunk Service Intelligence for SAP solutions is the most recent offering from Splunk and SAP, following earlier news of a free connector between Splunk Enterprise Security with SAP Enterprise Threat Detection
