SplunkLive! SF 2015: A Recap

SplunkLive bannerWe had a record breaking day in the bay at our 8th annual SplunkLive! San Francisco with over 900 attendees! This all new track style format – offering 16 different sessions in a single day – provided valuable content for Splunk newbies and seasoned Splunk customer champions alike.

Highlights included:

  • Godfrey Sullivan, Splunk Chairman and CEO, was joined on stage by Haiyan Song, SVP of Security Markets, and Snehal Antani, Splunk CTO. Haiyan covered the recent Caspida acquisition and the addition of data science-driven Behavioral Analytics to the industry’s most powerful analytics-enabled SIEM solution. Snehal Antani rounded out the keynote by discussing the evolution of IT; transitioning from a back office function, to a core part of the value the company delivers to its customers and “earning a seat at the table.”
  • Customer presentations from Symantec for Security, Sephora for ITOps and Equinix for Cloud and Enterprise Security.
  • We closed out the day with our experts panel which included our customer speakers and Splunk experts. Our attendees submitted questions via Twitter throughout the day and our CTO Snehal Antani was our moderator and served them up to our esteemed panel.

Evan Wayne, vice president of Store Systems and IT Operations for Sephora, explained how Splunk has been used to monitor both their in-store retail systems (mobile point-of-sale and ColorIQ systems) and online e-commerce sites to maximize uptime and successful transactions. With Splunk, failed customer transactions alone have fallen by 95%. The result has been a significant growth in customer satisfaction and increased transaction completion rate leading to revenue growth.
