Splunk, AWS and Autodesk
This past November, I had the privilege to attend AWS re:Invent, the largest gathering of the global Amazon Web Services community – attracting existing cloud customers, vendors and curious prospects. Also a privilege for me was seeing and hearing Splunk CEO, Godfrey Sullivan, present his keynote at the event. Godfrey is a natural storyteller and business evangelist, and I’m always so inspired and energized after I hear him speak.
His presentation at AWS re:Invent was no exception. On the main stage, Godfrey was both on-point and passionate about the partnership between Splunk and AWS. He made it clear that through the AWS ecosystem, customers receive the services and support necessary to improve business agility, increase application performance and security, …
We’re All Part of a Winning Team
I think we all love the feeling of winning something – even if it’s simply the $5 lottery scratch ticket or the March Madness office pool. For me, those can be really fun moments of over-exaggerated boasting. But I always have mixed emotions around sharing bigger wins or awards. I guess it’s because no one likes to be on the losing side of the win. The good news is that today the awards I’d like to share are wins that were made possible by teams of people demonstrating massive effort, innovation, and commitment to the development and evolution of Splunk software.
It’s not often we can say that we’re all part of a winning team. Thanks to Splunk employees, Splunk …

Splunk at TiVo: Watch your favorite shows when you want to
This is a familiar refrain in my home: “What’s on TV? Nothing? Ok, what about Netflix? Or Hulu? Have you seen the latest on Amazon Prime?” If you’re like me, you’d go to each service and search through each programming guide until you found a program you like. Or, you could use TiVo and search across all of the programming guides at once, saving yourself lots of time and trouble switching from one service to another.
For TiVo, this search capability – as well as other TiVo features — is critical to providing a seamless user experience for their 5M+ customers worldwide. Not just on TVs, but on tablets and smartphones too!
TiVo uses Splunk to monitor the uptime …
