Japan’s specialty chemicals manufacturer Nikko Chemicals produces ingredients for cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, food and sustainable products.
As a responsible corporate citizen, Nikko Chemicals works to balance both environmental and economic considerations. As an integral part of its business continuity strategy, the company strives to run a secure, scalable, hassle-free and fully visible cloud operation. Since deploying Splunk®, it has:
Automated cloud operations with a holistic view across multiple SaaS applications
Maximized business security through centralized and proactive threat protection
Boosted efficiency with simplified operations and painless system maintenance
Time-consuming integration of logs from disparate sources with restricted operational visibility
Security concerns on cloud migration and SaaS applications management
Limited manpower and resources for Cloud infrastructure management
Streamlined log management with full visibility over the entire cloud environment
Heightened security through centralized SOC monitoring and proactive threat detection and mitigation
Simplified operations, allowing a small team to manage the company's environment with ease, confidence and efficiency
Fueling a cloud-first strategy
In response to the Great East Japan Earthquake and the subsequent tsunamis in 2011, Nikko Chemicals kick-started a cloud migration initiative for better business continuity planning. By replacing on-premises infrastructures with software as a service (SaaS) applications running on Amazon Web Services (AWS), the company hopes to minimize damage and speed recovery during disasters. To ensure service integrity and protect business-critical information, Nikko Chemicals replaced its legacy asset management tool with the Splunk platform, which immediately improved operational visibility across the organization.
In addition to working well with AWS, the Splunk platform enables a small team at Nikko Chemicals to manage multiple SaaS applications through a user-friendly and highly visualized interface. Splunk Cloud fuels the organization’s SaaS focus by automating system updates and catering to a wider range of logs.
Splunk is worth every penny, creating unprecedented value and opportunities for companies with resource-strapped operations teams like us.
