Customers Share Compelling Experiences with Splunk

There have been a number of highlights from SplunkLive! 2018 already.  Attendees expressed particular interest in featured customer experiences-- how they have implemented Splunk for diverse business demands, from reducing costs to improving security awareness to creating more actionable decision-support information.  Popular presentations include:

How does Gap Inc. ensure your jeans are in the store?

IT professionals Dan Byun and Kartik Garg of Gap Inc. discussed their ongoing collaboration with Splunk to enable “revenue-generating insights” to improve the customer experience in more than 3,600 stores in 47 countries.  Speaking in Santa Clara, these Splunk power users shared how their implementations developed from a modest grassroots effort into an essential component of its IT operations to ensure global sales and inventory management systems are highly-available with rapid problem identification and resolution capabilities.

Digital Transformation relies on getting the right information from diverse sources—how’s that going in your organization?

At the New York City SplunkLive! gathering, IBM’s Mike Perera shared how his organization is collaborating with Splunk to eliminate blind spots in the IT architecture and ensure IBM customers have greater visibility into their enterprise IT operations and security postures.  With more than 90 percent of the world’s machine data generated in the last two years, now is the time for IT professionals to harness the business value of their enterprise data to deliver improved business outcomes.

Do you have a Complete Operational Picture of your enterprise security?

SplunkLive! attendees in Santa Clara learned from Nina D’Amato with the City and County of San Francisco how her organization is protecting the data of more than 865,000 residents.  They rely on Splunk to integrate the municipality’s diverse enterprise security tools to deliver trusted and comprehensive situational awareness, robust threat detection, and effective security incident and event management.

How can you transform enterprise data into actionable information?

Erika Swartz and Lin Stokes of Shaw Industries provided detailed examples of how the world’s largest flooring manufacturer with nearly $6 billion in annual sales, relies on the Splunk platform to improve product quality, reduce waste and cost, and empower increasingly data-driven solutions.  At SplunkLive! in Atlanta, these process engineering and business intelligence professionals demonstrated how they keep finding new applications to generate more value as their Splunk user base expands—from an initial two to more than 120 today.
