Driving the Mission Forward
A partnership between Rise Against Hunger and Splunk made a lot of sense. The Splunk Pledge commits company resources — software licenses, training, support and education — to nonprofits taking on extreme poverty, disasters and other humanitarian crises around the world. And Splunk Enterprise easily addressed Rise Against Hunger’s data challenges.
Gustafson wanted to use the Splunk platform to bring all the data from disparate systems into one place, to better report on regulatory compliance and find critical insights. And in the immediate future, Rise Against Hunger is looking to use the Splunk platform to help get all parts of the electronic registration system in place, “so that we get visibility into all the right data,” Gustafson says.
Another use she sees for Splunk is to track the millions of packaged meals on a global scale. In addition to simply tracking, the Splunk platform could create an entire use case around the beneficiaries — why that meal came to them — and reverse engineer its trajectory to see how and where that meal was packaged and transferred from a corporate volunteer to a beneficiary.
“Splunk is helping us work toward a full roadmap to gain visibility across the entire supply chain,” Gustafson says. “The technology and partnership will help to drive the organization forward."
