Splunk Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLK), the leading software platform for real-time Operational Intelligence, today announced that customers across virtually every industry and geography are benefitting from the agility of Amazon Web Services (AWS) and visibility that Splunk® solutions provide to get the most from their cloud deployments. Customers including analyticsMD, Cox Automotive, Eastman Chemical Company, EnerNOC, FamilySearch, Illumina, Travis Perkins and Yelp rely on Splunk solutions to help achieve increased levels of security and operational efficiency by gaining real-time insight into their AWS Cloud applications and infrastructure.
“Cloud computing and machine data are foundational to digital transformation and continuous innovation, and AWS and Splunk are committed to helping customers succeed in these critical categories,” said Cheryln Chin, vice president of global partners, Splunk. “For customers to take full advantage of the benefits of the cloud, they need end-to-end visibility across their entire AWS environment. Splunk solutions enhance the value customers get by enabling real-time insight into their AWS infrastructure.”
“analyticsMD is trusted by U.S. hospitals to provide real-time visibility into what’s happening on the ground and help them make instant decisions, and Splunk Light is critical for helping us maintain that real time insight and action,” said Ian Christopher, chief technical officer, analyticsMD. “We ingest data from our healthcare partners from around the country; Splunk Light allows us to proactively monitor issues and detect anomalies in the system before they become a problem. Now that we can also use Splunk Light and the Splunk App for AWS to manage our AWS environment, Splunk is becoming our go-to monitoring technology.”
“Using AWS and Splunk solutions together gives Cox Automotive an advantage by helping us use data to fuel the business,” said Steven Hatch, technology manager at Cox Automotive. “We generate massive amounts of data per day across all of the Cox Automotive infrastructure, including brands like Autotrader and Kelley Blue Book. We rely upon the integration of the Splunk App for AWS and Splunk Cloud with AWS to understand the health of production systems and to give our engineering and development teams insight into new software releases. It raised our efficiency and visibility to new levels, helping to protect our current revenue sources and opening our eyes to new revenue streams.”
“The Splunk App for AWS has been essential to Eastman Chemical’s journey to becoming a cloud-first company,” said Matthew Campbell, senior systems analyst, Eastman Chemical Company. “We collect and analyze virtually every AWS data source using the Splunk platform. Together, Splunk Enterprise and AWS Cloud help us be more proactive against security threats such as phishing, offer better availability to improve the customer experience, and analyze historical data to develop forward thinking security practices. Using the Splunk App for AWS, we are more proactive with real-time monitoring to understand who created an environment, when an instance was stopped or started, and if any specific activity triggered a security alert.”
“Splunk continues to be a driving force in the area of machine data analysis, continuously delivering innovative solutions to keep pace with customer demands,” said Terry Wise, vice president of worldwide partner ecosystem, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “The value of the AWS and Splunk collaboration is consistently demonstrated in the compelling customer success stories we see around the world and across all industries.”
