SAN FRANCISCO – October 30, 2018 – Splunk Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLK), delivering actions and outcomes from the world of data, today announced its global partnership with Trek-Segafredo Men’s and Women’s Road Teams, both owned by Trek, a multi-national bicycle and cycling product manufacturer and distributor. The partnership kicks off January 1, 2019, when Splunk sponsors the road teams on their global circuit including the Tour de France, Giro d’Italia, Tour of California and more, and provides both teams and Trek with actionable insights created by analyzing data from across the Trek ecosystem from the factory floor to the finish line.

With this partnership, Splunk is focused on analyzing data from all parts of the race experience, including riders, coaches, mechanics, fans and more to maximize performance and results directly from the training grounds, to the track, all the way to the Trek factories and warehouses. Splunk will capture, enhance and drive insights using Splunk technologies, making Trek-Segafredo one of the most data-driven, efficient teams on and off the circuit.
“Being a lifelong cyclist myself, I’m excited for Splunk to partner with Trek-Segafredo to help them turn data into a strategic advantage for the team,” said Doug Merritt, President and CEO, Splunk. “Innovation is at the heart of Splunk and Trek DNA, which is why this partnership is such a great fit for us.

“We’re focused first on the safety of shared information,” said Trek Vice President Roger Gierhart. “As technology continues to drive our industry, we’re thrilled to find such a strong partner whose goals perfectly align with ours. Splunk’s support will give us an important advantage in all aspects of our business, including our racing programs and product development.”
