We’re All Part of a Winning Team

Screen Shot 2015-03-24 at 12.12.34 PMI 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 …

But oftentimes, the data resides in disparate silos across the enterprise.

Typically, healthcare organizations must use vendor-specific solutions or create their …

Having been at TechUK’s Public Sector 2030 event last week and having completed my online tax self-assessment recently (just in time for the deadline of 31st January), digital government services have been on my mind the last few weeks.

Splunk is now part of G-Cloud 6 and the UK Government’s Digital Marketplace. We have some great public sector customers in the UK and being part of the G-Cloud was an obvious choice. You’ll be hearing a lot more about some of the public sector customers using Splunk and getting the benefits from Operational Intelligence over the next weeks and months. The team has been working …

Automatically gather all of your log files
Let’s face it manually gathering log files and grep’ing through them is no way to put out, let alone prevent, an IT fire. Splunk Light eliminates that by allowing you to gather and correlate data from virtually any source, format or location. Sources include data streaming from packaged and customer applications, app servers, web servers, databases, network wire data, virtual machines, operating systems, sensors, and much more.
