The observability suite will also include Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring, Splunk APM, and Splunk On-Call. 

The company also plans to expand the suite with newly announced acquisitions of Plumbr and Rigor. Plumbr is an application performance monitoring (APM) company with real user monitoring and deep app performance insights, while Rigor is a digital experience monitoring (DEM) provider with advanced synthetic monitoring and optimization tools. 

According to the company, the acquisitions will provide a seamless end-to-end observability experience for users whether they are working in the cloud or on premise. 

“Together, Plumbr and Rigor accelerate Splunk’s vision to deliver a comprehensive Observability Suite with best-in-class DEM and APM for all applications. Splunk is the industry’s leading enterprise-grade Observability Suite providing customers with a complete, full-fidelity view into their data,” said Tim Tully, chief technology officer at Splunk.
