Realize $19 Million in Benefits, Including Reduced Operations and
Infrastructure Costs and Improved Productivity
Elastic (NYSE: ESTC) (“Elastic”), the company behind
Elasticsearch and the Elastic Stack, today released a commissioned
study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Elastic,
The Total Economic Impact of Elastic
Observability and Security Solutions.
The study reveals that organizations using Elastic’s Security
and Observability solutions realize an average return on investment
(ROI) of 358% over a three-year period, with the platform paying
for itself in less than six months.
The new study concluded customers using Elastic saw quantified
benefits of $19 million, consisting of reduced operations and
monitoring labor costs, developer labor savings, reduced risk of
data breach, and reduced infrastructure and licensing costs.
The study further demonstrated that after implementing Elastic’s
Observability and Security solutions, customers improved the
efficiency of their development and security teams, increasing
time-to-value benefits due to faster application delivery while
reducing security operations costs.
Additionally, organizations using Elastic for observability and
security found the following benefits:
- Up to 10X performance improvement and 75% reduction in
licensing costs: Elastic customers found up to 10X performance
improvement with Elastic’s data ingestion and query response times
when using less expensive storage devices, and licensing cost
savings of up to 75% versus the prior SIEM solution cost when
combined with the use of alternative storage methods.

costs: Elastic customers using both Observability and Security

more stable applications and controlling resource consumption.
- “As customers modernize their security and observability
operations they need to balance cost and complexity with time to
value and ease of use,” said Paul Appleby, President Worldwide
Field Operations, Elastic. “We believe Forrester’s analysis
highlights how the speed and scale of Elastic saves customers time
and money while making it easier to prevent cyber security threats
and evolve their observability posture. When a customer brings all
of its people, data, and systems into one place, the value they
receive from their investment rises exponentially.”
