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.
