"SIMs are evolving from intelligent log aggregators to operational business tools where SIMs can help uncover/identify business improvement opportunities. For example SIMs can identify excessive login failures, and with that information, a security team could alter its password policy or have a cost-justification for an SSO solution. SIMs are also integrating with "newer" technologies such as wireless IDS/IPS and virtual machines." -- Diana Kelley, partner, SecurityCurve
