EMA Research ReportBased on research criteria defined by EMA vice president of research for hybrid cloud & infrastructure management Jim Frey, this new research study takes a detailed look at the ways in which network log data is being harvested, analyzed, and used for network operations management.

  • 96% of participants indicated that network log data was of average importance or higher within their overall hierarchy of network management data sources, and 64% felt is "More important than most" or "Most important."
  • 75% of shops are either currently using a central log analysis system or are planning to consolidate the multiple tools they have into a single system.
  • The biggest challenge most face when using network log data is "Knowing what to look for," and consequently the most highly value feature for log analytics is "Fast search."
  • Over 90% of organizations are applying one or more forms of advanced analytics in the processing of network log data, such as root cause analysis, proactive alerting, threat identification, and performance trending.
