Another .conf is almost here! As I write this, my team and I are focused on making sure .conf18 is an amazing and worthwhile experience for IT professionals—for Splunk ninjas and newbies alike. At this .conf, you’ll learn more about our unique vision for IT and the many investments we’ve made to turn that vision into reality. We’ll showcase some product updates, and we might even preview something special we’re cooking up.
But most of all, we’re excited to show you how IT organizations can achieve predictive IT with Splunk IT Service Intelligence, enabling them to forecast problems 30-40 minutes ahead of time and prevent issues before they happen.
From “Anatomy of a Successful Events Analytics Deployment” to “Zipkin and Splunk: Tracing Transactions Across Your Ecosystem,” .conf will have over 40 sessions on a wide range of IT topics. Here are just some of the sessions I’m excited about this year:

But that’s not all we’ll have—you should definitely check out the source=*Pavilion for demos that show how Splunk is solving some of the most pressing IT problems. I’m looking forward to seeing you there (and at the Search Party)!
