Security (or System) Information and Event Management. A SIEM is essentially a purpose-built EDW, intended for security and systems operations analysis. Like an EDW, a SIEM extracts data from many operational systems, aggregates the data, and conveys multi-dimensional views of that data. A common SIEM use case is to examine user activity across operational systems such as firewalls, IPAM solutions, and IAM systems.
