Splunk doing well
“I am delighted to welcome 329 new customers to the Splunk family,” said Godfrey Sullivan, president and CEO of Splunk.
“In addition, we are pleased to report the expanded use of our software to adjacent departments in over 100 of our existing customers. Often customers start using Splunk for one purpose, such as IT Operations Management, but quickly realise additional value in other areas such as application management, security, business analytics and web intelligence. The significant number of use case expansions demonstrates how our customers are recognising the power and versatility of our software.”
