Splunk has been leading the way in the new world of Big Data for some time, and if you look at their recent earnings you will see that they are matching the marketing with solid growth. Their recent announcements like HUNK also show they are building a solid roadmap for their platform that will enable the Enterprise to embrace both the Splunk platform and the newer disruptive technologies like Hadoop well into the future. I am looking forward to seeing more of this in Vegas later this month at .conf2013. And yes, I do love Vegas.
We recently developed an integration available via Splunkbase to the Splunk Analytics platform. We are now able to deliver a number of business critical BI and visualization capabilities to Splunk customers. True to the Pentaho’s mission – to deliver the future of analytics – our partnership with Splunk, the leading software platform for real-time operational intelligence is another step on our path to that mission. Our alliance and integration makes it easy and cost effective for the global Splunk customer base to adopt Pentaho’s comprehensive business analytics and visualization platform to manage and gain business class insight from this highly valuable source of data. By using our integration, business users in the Enterprise will now be able to bring the Splunk data to life in our rich visualizations, be that pixel perfect reporting, rich and dynamic dashboards and also the ability to do all this in a full BI self-service experience. Business users need this capability in the format they can consume and Pentaho can deliver that.
Critically Pentaho can also combine Splunk data with data from other repositories for enriched context and value. Enterprises can now leverage the integration of Pentaho and Splunk to extend their big data analytics by unlocking and harnessing machine data generated by websites, applications, servers, storage, network, mobile and other devices all the way down to network and system sensors. Data can be brought into the Splunk platform from various and multiple sources, be they EDW’s, the new data repositories like Hadoop and NoSQL, This can also bring proprietary database data in the Enterprise into a place where it can be used to bring business value.
By using our Pentaho ETL capabilities we can extend Spunk’s DB connect to enable a full data integration experience to the EDW teams
We love working with the Splunk product team and are really looking forward to the Splunk .conf2013 September 30 - October 3. Besides the trip to the Hard Rock that will surely happen, we will be demonstrating our solution running on Splunk with Splunk data to the customers who will be attending this great event (look for the Pentaho booth in the sponsor hall). We will also be supporting two Splunk sessions - I am looking forward to participating in the following panels:
- CXO Panel: Addressing Big Data Challenges and Opportunities led by Eddie Satterly , Chief Big Data Evangelist, Office of the CTO, Splunk - October 1, 4:30-5:30, Big Data track
- Big Data Ecosystem: Partner Panel, led by Brett Sheppard , Director, Product Marketing for Big Data , Splunk - October 2, 4:30-5:30, Big Data track
What is even more exciting is that we are already working with the Splunk sales teams in the field and at the customers demonstrating and proving our joint capabilities. This is where the rubber hits the road as they say and we look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with the Splunk team.
Hope to see you in Vegas!
