Recursion Pharma Targets 100 Genetic Diseases with Splunk and Machine Learning
In the past, Salt Lake City-based Recursion Pharmaceuticals found it difficult to manage large amounts of time-series data collected from computer-controlled instruments and video footage generated from cameras in the laboratory. The initial data management strategy hardly matched the firm’s aggressive high-volume ambitions — its laboratory’s microscopes currently produce on the order of 700,000 TIFF files each week, representing an 800 percent increase in productivity over 10 months. While the company considered open-source alternatives, the director of high-throughput science (HTS) operations saw the pivotal role that Splunk Enterprise could fill as Recursion ramped up its capabilities.

The Splunk platform helps monitor and diagnose issues in real time with complex lab instruments, catching anomalies in automated operations, letting the high-throughput science team build dashboards to measure quality over time. It also serves as a data management platform that feeds machine data back to the data scientists who work with Splunk add-ons such as Splunk DB Connect, enabling the team to share discovered knowledge
Biopharma Leader Gets Ahead of Security Threats with Analystics-Driven SIEM in the Cloud
With data silos located worldwide, a global biopharmaceutical leader realized it needed a security information and event management (SIEM) solution. To better protect its customers and intellectual property against cyberthreats and breaches, particularly given today’s ever-changing security threat landscape, the company adopted Splunk Cloud withSplunk Enterprise Security (ES) for security and compliance.
Given that the company manages highly sensitive consumer and proprietary intellectual property data, it needed a solution that would provide visibility into any possible threats in its IT environment as soon as possible. The company was satisfied with the immediate availability of Splunk Cloud with Splunk Enterprise Security as its SIEM, and the security team began asking questions and getting answers from its data right away. The Splunk analytics-driven SIEM takes in log information from all areas of the company — including infrastructure, applications and devices — to detect security incidents and manage those events, which simply could not be done adequately with its legacy SIEM. Overall, security investigation and resolution times have been reduced from up to months to hours or even minutes. In addition to relying on Splunk Cloud for security and compliance, the company is also beginning to use Splunk Cloud to monitor its IT operations, and plans are underway to identify additional ways to leverage insights from the data and help the business moving forward.
The Splunk platform aggregates and analyzes digital exhaust from various sources, including application program interface (API) pulls and log files from applications, servers, mobile devices and websites. Turning machine data into operational intelligence helps Splunk’s customers gain an understanding of what’s happening across their IT systems and technology infrastructure in real-time in order to facilitate data-driven decision management.
