Someone Like Me, Someone Like You

techlogoI took a seat at the boardroom table. It was my first time presenting to the executive team since joining so I quickly scanned the room for allies. I shot a tentative smile toward the woman next to me and she smiled back, but it was clear that we were outnumbered, by at least ten to one. Over the last 15 years of working at technology companies, inside and outside of Silicon Valley, I’ve lost count of the times I was the only woman in a meeting room.

Early in my career it made me question if I belonged because there were no role models who looked like me.

When you look at it by the numbers*, this situation comes …

The Value of Hybrid Highlighted as Splunk is Honored by SC Magazine Awards

Every organization has a cloud strategy. It’s a journey, but the destination is clear. And, it’s my experience that regardless of what mile marker organizations have just passed on the road to cloud, they’re likely operating a hybrid environment. This means they are running solutions both on-premises and in the cloud. To support this strategy, we offer hybrid delivery options – supporting both on-premises and cloud solutions – one of the differentiated values we provide our Splunk customers.

And today, I’m excited to share that our differentiated value just got a big boost asSCMagazineAwards2 Splunk Enterprise won a Trust award for “Best Fraud Prevention Solution” and Splunk Enterprise Security won a Trust award for “Best SIEM Solution” from SC …

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

SurpriseI hope everyone is getting ready for Christmas and nobody got injured in the madness that was black Friday. I’ve just got back from San Francisco where the festive season was in full effect. My Christmas shopping is nearly complete and the adoption of secret service level espionage tactics to hide presents from my children is underway. I’m fairly useless at keeping gifts a secret – I’ve nearly told my 8 year old son that he’s going to get an army of Star Wars Clonetroopers a number of times. 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 …
