Watch: CEO Doug Merritt Talks Conquering Big Data

This week I had the great pleasure of joining Jim Cramer on CNBC’s Mad Money to discuss data analytics, accessibility and Splunk’s role in the digital transformation. I had the opportunity to explain how running an operational intelligence platform can make machine data more accessible. One of the reasons Jim calls Splunk “the Google of data mining.”

Find out how Splunk is transforming business for our clients, including FedEx, Domino’s Pizza and more, in the full interview below.


Cheers!
