Splunk - Operational Intelligence

Here's something new I came across this morning - Splunk.

It takes your machine data and makes sense of it.

And Operational Intelligence seems to be like compressed Business Intelligence.

Where BI is like an encyclopedia or newspaper, OI is real time monitoring of process' with the ability to intervene and apply some "action" for exceptions/anomalies.

A dynamic BI if you will.

What's next? - in my opinion, a machine layer of Artificial Intelligence...? that can monitor behavior, watch for deviations, apply rules/actions based on those random occurrences, as well as predict future behavior based on patterns.
