SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Splunk, the engine for machine data, today announced that it has been awarded the Best Case Study Presentation at TDWI's recent Big Data Analytics Solution Summit in San Diego.
Splunk Chief Marketing Officer Steve Sommer and Vice President of Engineering Stephen Sorkin delivered the presentation, which examined deep analytics and emphasized that machine data is one of the fastest growing, most complex and most valuable segments of big data.
The summit delegates selected Splunk from nearly 20 vendors due to the company's compelling examples of customers that grasp the potential of big data and their ability to capitalize on the opportunity. According to Richard Zbylut, president of TDWI, "As a thought leader in the business intelligence space, TDWI is pleased to recognize business intelligence technology companies like Splunk that have developed innovative solutions their customers are embracing and willing to share with others."
The presentation looked at how customers across several industries including cloud/online services, education, media, government and manufacturing are using Splunk to make machine data accessible, usable and valuable to everyone.
"Data is growing exponentially, across virtually every organization," said Sommer. "In our presentation, we explained how our customers are monitoring, analyzing and reporting on machine data to derive operational insights for both IT and the business. Many vendors are focused on extending relational databases to address structured data, but our founders realized that machine data requires a fundamentally different type of solution."
