Data Management Overview


Data Management

The Atlas Data Management Application is a comprehensive set of tools that help Splunk administrators get data into Splunk and manage it through its lifecycle. Data Management includes interfaces that allow users to submit data ingestion requests, inventory the data after it has been ingested, and proactively monitor the data feed once it is active.

Data Management is designed to help you create a Data Governance process for your Splunk implementation. Understanding what your data means to your organization, how it is being used, and if it is healthy are critical aspects of any Data Governance process. It's not uncommon in Splunk environments to lose sight of the reason that your data is being collected. Data Management can help you manage the lifecycle of your data so that you always understand your data and the value it is bringing to your business.
