Unlock the Hidden Value of Your Machine Data

Retail banks, investment banks and insurance companies operate sophisticated IT environments to support high-volume activities like trade payment or claims processing and multi-channel banking. These systems generate terabytes of machine data every day, spanning application logs, FIX order logs, SWIFT messages, web proxy logs, message queues, IPS/IDS logs, syslogs and more.

With Splunk, financial services firms can transform all of this machine data into operational intelligence to:

  • Gain insights across IT systems including core banking, trading and payment processing
  • Accelerate the introduction of new services for mobile banking and field communications
  • Identify and resolve issues faster to deliver a superior customer experience across banking channels
  • Enhance their security posture and ensure effective compliance with regulatory requirements

Improves Trade Execution Efficiency

Splunk software reliably collects and analyzes any type of machine-generated big data to help financial institutions gain visibility into the entire trading lifecycle. This enables them to quickly pinpoint and resolve issues before they can negatively impact trading operations.

Accelerates Payment Processing

Financial institutions must achieve SLAs when processing payments, and visibility into the entire payment infrastructure helps them ensure smooth payment flow so that clearing and settlement can happen as quickly as possible.

Splunk can rapidly index machine data across the payment-processing infrastructure, providing the insight needed to proactively monitor and troubleshoot incidents when they arise.
