Why We Built a Splunk App and You Should, Too

Michael Gleason

I spend my days (and nights) explaining how the strengths of the cloud - high availability, scalability, and interoperability - can help us overcome what is often considered its greatest weakness: security.

SplunkMost organizations have dozens of applications to manage, each with their own set of idiosyncratic features and functions. Maintaining each app separately can be an administrative and workflow headache. Meanwhile, getting apps to speak to each other has historically been a challenge.

All of this changes with the advent of marketplace based add-on applications, unlocking a new world of integration and workflow possibilities.

So Why Would I Build a Splunk App?

People Love Splunk. With over 9,000 customers across the globe, Splunk must be doing something right.

Rich Add-On Ecosystem. Splunk has a mature add-on ecosystem, boasting over 600 community-developed apps available in their marketplace (dubbed Splunkbase).

Customers Have Their Own Workflows. Rather than insisting customers modify existing workflows and processes to adapt to your product – adding yet another barrier to adoption – building integratable applications allow customers to consume your product in a manner that works for them. Bonus: your product will become ingrained in macro-level organizational processes and increase “stickiness” along the way.

Customers Want to Aggregate Data. By leveraging the information other apps in the ecosystem provide and correlating formerly siloed information sets, you can provide customers with more comprehensive insights and compliment one app’s weaknesses with another’s strengths.

Maximizing Return on Existing Investments. Organizations allocate sizeable budgets for applications – whether we’re talking about Splunk, Salesforce.com, Google Apps, or the many other staples of contemporary institutions. Integrations that maximize the return on investment are well-received and build tangible value for businesses.
