Atlas Assessment Overview


Atlas Assessment

Atlas Assessment is a powerful tool that is designed to help you evaluate the state of your Splunk environment and identify areas that can be improved. Using Assessment you will have visibility into the health of your Splunk environment and will also be able to see how Atlas can help to improve it. It is recommended that any journey with Atlas begin with an assessment to identify areas where improvements can be made in their current Splunk deployment, and where Atlas can provide immediate results. Following the assessment recommendations can help you improve Splunk search speeds, increase data stability, reduce Splunk costs, and greatly improve Splunk adoption.
