Data growth has significantly out-pacing budgets; the products we use, have to do more. This is where optimization comes into play. Generally, optimization is associated with reduction which may be intimidating…what if something important is reduced? How can you identify what should be reduced?
Reduction isn’t about removing context, but about removing repetitive data, meaningless fields, or even flattening JSON. Any of these techniques makes room for more of the critical sources and fields your organization needs. Overall, reduction saves storage space, improves analytic system performance, and can even reduce search times.
The team at Accenture Federal Services (AFS) is accustomed to working on large-scale projects requiring a high degree of accuracy and reliability. To best support their customers, optimization must be built-in, not revisited. Cribl Stream is a key component in their toolset, which allows highly efficient ingest from the beginning providing customers with increased control over the outcome of their high-volume, high-stakes environments.
Using Cribl Stream, AFS can quickly validate the quality of data ingested from various sources. Internal metrics provide quick confirmation surrounding data fidelity. This native functionality gives the team absolute visibility into the integrity of the content being acquired and processed leaving the customer to focus on clarifying potential anomalies and resolving issues of importance.
Optimizing data can be time-consuming, simply because it involves other stakeholders. With the unprecedented amount of flexibility that Stream adds, AFS saves time and reduces friction by modifying data in flight. There’s no waiting for other parties to prioritize your request, or delay while others buy in.

I can definitely get 100% more done with Stream in the mix. No more having to go to individual systems to figure something out; no more having to talk to vendors to get them to fix their timestamps — we can do it ourselves in Stream. It’s also easy because we run all of our Cribl deployment in our AWS GovCloud environment.
