Splunk Cloud Platform Case Study

Tempus Labs Improved Time-to-Value by Migrating to Splunk Cloud


This case study of Tempus Labs, Inc. is based on a March 2022 survey of Splunk Cloud Platform customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“Splunk has a robust stack of features and documentation. From ease of use, certifications, training, and customization, Splunk has it all. Lots of use cases, observability, monitoring, security, machine learning, ITOps, you name it. Splunk can do it.” — Michael Tayo, Cloud Security Engineer at Tempus Labs.


Tempus faced the following challenges before migrating to the Splunk Cloud Platform:

  • Accessing, ingesting, searching and/or monitoring siloed data across organization
  • Too much time and/or resources spent on time-consuming admin tasks instead of high-value use case delivery
  • Issues maintaining compliance or meeting security standards
  • Slow time-to-value
  • Difficulties expanding the hardware deployment

Use Case

Tempus is using Splunk for Security, IT Operations and DevOps and decided to migrate because their overall IT organization is moving to cloud-based services, and they needed additional elasticity in their Splunk deployment going forward.

The organization has found the following features and capabilities of Splunk Cloud Platform most valuable:

  • Powerful searching, reporting and analyzing capabilities
  • Ability to stream unstructured data from all systems, devices and people
  • Ability to reallocate time-consuming tasks to Splunk to focus on high-value use case delivery


Tempus agrees with the following statements after using Splunk Cloud Platform:

  • Splunk Cloud Platform provides the same power and flexibility of Splunk Enterprise, but with significantly less of the management burden.
  • Splunk Cloud Platform allows us to innovate more quickly and our end users are happier.
  • Splunk Cloud Platform helps us onboard new teams and use cases with an ability to scale faster and on-demand.

Tempus rates improvements in time-to-value, use case delivery, and administrative tasks since migrating to the Splunk Cloud Platform. The company saw significant improvements in security and compliance as well.
