Organizations that deploy SIEM systems know this uphill climb well. Deployment typically takes 18 months, and more than half of these SIEM deployments fail. A major friction point is the big hardware refresh every three to four years, requiring all configurations & customizations be saved.

If you magically get the SIEM working on the first cycle, it may fail on the next. Or when you stop pedaling.
