Technical help - OnDemand Services (ODS)

Project-based services

Project-Based Services are much more involved, typically larger-scale services engagements compared to ODS. With these, you will work with a Splunk Engagement Manager to determine and finalize the scope of the project. Once everything is signed off, we will work with you in lockstep to deliver on the agreed-upon project. If you’d like to explore options here, please get in touch with us via this contact form or get in touch with your account manager

Even the most savvy customer will need a little help. Whether it’s error messages, unexplained or unexpected behaviors, or incidents and outages, Technical Support is the first line of defense for all of your post-sales issues. Splunk Support Engineers will partner with you to ensure your environment is optimized to drive your journey with a
focus on long-term technical health, so you can realize your ROI as soon as possible.
