SplunkLive! London Calling – Shazam, John Lewis and the NHS. Should I stay or should I go?


As with most of my blog posts, apologies for the title. It isn’t often you can combine big data and The Clash. It doesn’t seem long since last year’s event but SplunkLive! London is here again. We’ve got an outstanding line up of customers with Shazam, John Lewis and HSCIC (the IT provider for the NHS) talking about how they use machine data for IT operations, cybersecurity and real-time business analytics. You can see the full line up and register at http://live.splunk.com/london

A platform is only as good as its ecosystem and we have our most innovative, extensive set of sponsors ever with Cisco, AWS, EMC, SyncSort, Nimble Storage, Qualys, Recorded Future, Sbox, Alpha Insight, ECS, Eview, Phoenix, Somerford all demonstrating their part in the big data and Operational Intelligence landscape.

Not only is SplunkLive! running but we also have GovSummit happening on the same day in the same location. The focus will be on UK Public Sector, Government as a platform, cybersecurity and digital government services. We’ve got some great speakers and you can register or find the full agenda at http://live.splunk.com/GovSummit_London

After lunch we’ll be breaking into tracks to allow you to focus in on the area you’re most interested in:

  • Splunk for beginners (the platform, how it works, how to get started and data on-boarding)
  • Security (security intelligence, Splunk Enterprise Security and User Behaviour Analytics, Cloud Breach – detect and respond)
  • IT Operations (Splunk for IT Ops/ITOA, Service Intelligence, DevOps)
  • Splunk Advanced (new features/search dojo, machine learning & IoT, business decisions using data driven insight)

After the afternoon session we’ll have happy hour and then there will be a Splunk UK user group that you can register for here.

You can follow all the action from both events on Twitter with the hashtags #splunkliveLDN and #SplunkGov.

To answer the question in the title of the blog, you should definitely go if it doesn’t “clash” with anything else. We’d be delighted to see you there.

As always, thanks for reading (and putting up with the awful jokes)…
