The State of Log Management and Analytics for AWS
The Log Management industry was traditionally driven by regulatory compliance and security concerns resulting in a multi-billion dollar market focused on security and information event management (SIEM) solutions. However, log management has evolved into a market that is focused on both the management and analytics of log data. Log management technologies are becoming more powerful and dynamic, allowing for data to be easily extracted and analyzed from logs for a much wider range of use cases. For example, unstructured events can be parsed in real-time for important field values, which can be subsequently analyzed and rolled up into metrics dashboards.
