“Workload has helped us ingest more data and allowed us to choose which data to analyze without increasing our Splunk contract value.” — Large Enterprise Telecommunications Services Company


Prior to switching to Splunk Cloud Workload Pricing, the organization struggled with ingesting more data without the added cost of ingest pricing.

Use Case

The aspects of Splunk’s Workload Pricing model that have been valuable to the organization:

  • Because of Workload’s flexibility, we are able to gain more and better insights from our data.

The customer increased the amount of GB they ingest by 51-75% since using Splunk’s Workload Pricing and has experienced the following benefits:
