The Application Performance Challenges

Italo launched an initiative to build a centralized platform to collect, organize and
analyze all application logs across its IT infrastructure. Given the variety and volume
of data formats, range of data sources, and sites, Italo focused its attention on
robust data collection and consolidation. A key challenge was to design a reliable
architecture capable of collecting large amounts of highly heterogeneous data and
of making it available for analysis.

Strategy and Solution

After an initial discovery phase, Italo and Moviri decided to build a distributed,
clustered and flexible Splunk-based log management system, tailored to meet
specific Italo requirements while implementing Moviri best practices developed over the years in close collaboration with Splunk as Elite Partner.
Working with system administrators and business application owners, Moviri
designed and implemented the integration of data sources, the setup of ingestion
pipelines, and the installation of the analytics frontend. Relevant business data is made available from a single point, enabling correlation analysis, monitoring, and troubleshooting activities.
