EMEA and coding in Las Vegas

As the European summer is officially over and the torrential rain has started, it is time to think of sunnier climes and .conf season. 

After visits to Washington DC and Orlando, this year we’re back in Las Vegas for .conf19.

We have some pretty amazing customer speakers from EMEA presenting how they are turning their data into doing:

Porsche are holding two sessions, first up they will provide insights into the digitalization of the new Porsche Taycan, Porsche’s first all-electrically powered four-seat sports car that will be introduced in September 2019.
Secondly they will talk about how they use Splunk for IT Operational Analytics (ITOA) and how to deliver the right sequence of IT use cases, capabilities, Splunk apps, technical add-ons, and KPIs based on your unique environment.

Paddy Power Betfair will be talking in two sessions about how their Site Reliability Engineers use Splunk from QA to production and how they scaled Splunk Cloud from 1TB to 13TB of data a day. 

In a fantastically titled session, The Bank of England will explain how they build a JARVIS for their SOC. Love the reference. To quote “The boss saw Ironman and wanted to create a JARVIS-like assistant for our SOC...so we built him one using Splunk. In this session we will share how we developed a Splunk virtual assistant to improve SOC efficiency and support the SOC 2.0 model of continual improvement.”

The UK Ministry Of Defence are presenting “Big DevOps in Small Packages” and how they built a scalable cloud monitoring platform with Splunk, SmartStore, Docker and AWS Services

TalkTalk, a leading UK telecommunications provider are talking about how they use real-time data in Splunk to become the most recommended connectivity provider by improving customer experience whilst saving money. 

Deutsche Bahn are using Splunk Business Flow to quickly map thousands of customer experiences to understand opportunities for improving efficiencies. In this session, learn how they are able to operate a more efficient call center and drive greater passenger sales using fast and flexible insights.

The Dutch Tax and Customs Administration have had to deal with criminals claiming to be representatives of the organization and contacting the public with phishing e-mails every day. By using Splunk they have developed a technique to identify phishing attacks that are carried out under the disguise of their organization. 

Expo 2020 in Dubai is one of the world’s largest events with an expected 25 million visitors from 190 countries. Hear why Expo 2020 and DarkMatter chose Splunk to deliver a fully-integrated digital transformation, defense, and cybersecurity solution across their entire digital platform.

That’s a pretty amazing line up! We’ve also got customer stories from Gatwick Airport, AIB, Johnson Matthey, TGW, JP Morgan Chase, Siemens, DATEV, Norges Bank Investment Management and GVB.

Hopefully see you in Vegas…
