Splunk Cloud Platform Case Study

Parsons Transportation Group Controls Costs and Optimizes Performance with Splunk Cloud Workload Pricing


This case study of Parsons Transportation Group Inc. is based on a December 2021 survey of Splunk Cloud Platform customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“With Splunk, it’s great to see the pricing before committing to the use case.” — Christopher Colaianni, Engineer, Parsons Transportation Group Inc.


Parsons Transportation Group was experiencing slow time-to-value using ingest pricing before switching to Splunk Cloud Platform Workload Pricing.

Use Case

Parsons decided to convert to Splunk’s Workload Pricing model because they wanted to ingest more data without worrying about data volume limits. The volume of their data had grown, and they needed more flexibility to run searches where and when they wanted.


Now that Parsons is using Splunk Cloud Platform’s Workload Pricing model, they called out that the combination of Workload Pricing and the Workload Management features allow them to control costs and optimize performance. Since using Splunk’s Workload Pricing, Parsons is benefitting because they can ingest more data. Here are the increases Parsons Transportation has achieved:

  • The number of workloads run is up by as much as 75%.
  • The amount of ingested GB increased by 51-75%.
