The best Christmas presents are surprises. Splunk wins “Best Business Application” at UK’s V3 awards.

I think it is important to try and keep presents a surprise to recapture some of the magic of the festive period when I was growing up and to try and …

Splunk 2012 Revolution Awards—Winners!

To my surprise, after just a few minutes of randomly hitting buttons and playing all 30 lines like a Vegas VIP, I hit some kind of jackpot and walked away with $40. Vegas, I own you!

No doubt about it—everyone loves to feel like a winner! So, on Tuesday night during the Search Party, we distinguished the winners of this year’s Splunk Revolution Awards. The …

Before that, we had a Call for Submissions back in December 2011, and had invited all our APAC partners to participate in this competition. The response was overwhelming, and we had received 15 best-of-the-breed apps that showcase just how Splunk can be used across the industries.

Bounded by a set of Judging Criteria, we began the arduous task of scoring the apps. There weren’t any firm conclusions as each and every one of the apps were stellar and we had to go thru 23 rounds of debates and discussions …
