“Splunk MINT Enterprise and Splunk MINT Express, the first new products from our Bugsense acquisition, not only help our customers build more reliable, better performing mobile apps but also harness mobile app data for new, strategic IT and business insights,” said Guido Schroeder, senior vice president of products, Splunk. “In a mobile-first world, mobile app performance and quality are mission-critical. At the same time, data from mobile apps that provides insights into user behavior and usage characteristics becomes even more valuable when combined with data from other channels, including web and laptop applications, to provide full visibility of user interactions across multiple channels.”

“Mobile applications have become increasingly critical to business success, but approaches to monitoring performance, usage and effectiveness tend to focus on developers or IT,” said Julie Craig, research director, Application Management, Enterprise Management Associates. “Splunk, with its mobile intelligence offerings, offers a unique approach that can support the cross channel insights needed by developers, IT operations and the business.”
