What are pivots and data models in Splunk?

When you need to analyse large volumes of unstructured data and construct a hierarchical model without running complicated search queries on the data, you may utilise Splunk data models. Data models are commonly used to produce sales reports, establish access levels, and build an authentication framework for a variety of applications.

Pivots, on the other hand, allow you to build different views and see the results according to your needs. Even managers of stakeholders with non-technical skills may use pivots to generate perspectives and learn more about their departments.
