In this chapter, we saw how Splunk can be used at an organizational level for IT operations, cybersecurity, software development and support and the IoTs. We reviewed critical topics related to the planning of your Splunk infrastructure, including forwarders. We provided details for acquiring Splunk software through purchase and provided insights into the vast set of resources available through the Splunk online community.
We have enjoyed taking you through the first step in a very rewarding journey to use Splunk to benefit yourself or organization. You now have the skills and insights you need to take the product, explore its abilities with your data and build upon initial successes you may have.
