Splunk Challenge 2012 – A Competition in Operational Intelligence

“Put 40 students in a room, give them Splunk with some data sources and see what they can come up with”, suggested Lord Lau.

Real ROI using Splunk–from the Great White North to the Deep South

We wrapped up our SplunkLive events for 2011 by migrating to warmer climates–namely, deep in the heart of Texas.

They shared how they are currently using Splunk in their organization, and made announcements of the following new Splunk Apps they developed and published to Splunk Base:

The audience was wowed with the …
