It is well suited for a service-based department, but it can sometimes offer confusion for non-technical users because of the amount information the form fields require.

During POC, pre-planning, and implementation, we have had interactions with numerous folks at Splunk. Everyone from sales & engineering to markets analysts to specific IT component SMEs, and a small professional services engagement to get started. They have all been exceptionally helpful and go above and beyond the call of duty. They actively reach out to ensure success is being realized and find ways to help proactively, instead of having to simply open support cases with the vendor.

Splunk has raised itself as a platform not just as a tool unlike other products in the market. If I talk about
