From Admin perspective, I found user access management a little difficult. The roles of access management becomes complicated because some time the config files for that didn't came very handy. Other then that I think all in all Splunk provides fulfill all of the requirements.

It is a somewhat expensive service but with more powerful features than other free SIEM systems, and it is a bit complex to set up and use for inexperienced users, so a lot of help should be sought from experienced staff and support team at first.
