SplunkLive! London Calling – Shazam, John Lewis and the NHS. Should I stay or should I go?

We’ve got an outstanding line up of customers with Shazam, John Lewis and HSCIC (the IT provider for the NHS) talking about how they use machine data for IT operations, cybersecurity and real-time business analytics. You can see the full line up and register at http://live.splunk.com/london

Operational Intelligence – Manufactured in Germany | SplunkLive! Germany events 2016
Spring has only just begun and yet we have already finished our SplunkLive! 2016 Tour across Germany. We began in Munich with further stops in Frankfurt and Hamburg.

We heard how a botnet is using hacked e-mail mailboxes for malicious activities, we saw how Splunk sends out Excel sheets to individuals across a business and learned what could be done with 10bn events and machine learning for business application monitoring.
Let’s get started on the highlights with Datev, the 4th largest German software company and Computerwoche’s second best …

Smoking Hot Data…How We Splunked Barbecue
It’s true. You can Splunk just about anything. As someone who is not incredibly technically inclined, understanding the power of Splunk can be difficult to wrap my head around. I find the best way to understand the power of Splunk is to apply it to something you know and love. And with SplunkLive! coming up in some of the best barbecue cities across the US this year, my personal experimentation with Splunk happens to tie-in nicely.
I’ve been happily married to a Texan and University of Texas at Austin graduate for nine years. Aside from being a top-notch husband, he has a passion and knack for cooking Texas-style barbecue and brewing beer. For now, let’s focus on the barbecue.

SplunkLive! London: What did you miss?
Full disclosure: I work for Splunk in the Sales Engineering team and have done so for the last 11 months.
This week I attended my very first SplunkLive! in London and it completely vindicated my decision to join this fantastic company.

Wednesday May 13th. London gets its Splunk on (and so does Carlton from The Fresh Prince)
Forget the UK’s general election and the new Avengers movie, SplunkLive! London 2015 is the most interesting thing happening in London in May (OK maybe not, but it is going to be pretty great). After the success of last year with 450 attendees, Credit Suisse, John Lewis and Cognia, we’ve at least matched it this year with Paddy Power, Ticketmaster and Cert-EU as customer speakers. We’ve also got most of the Splunk executive team in London to take SplunkLive! up a gear. Not only that, but we’re also mixing the agenda up a bit to include a second day of Splunk University for the first time in EMEA. Finally, we’re also going to be running a Splunk London …
