Importance of AI

Big data company Splunk (SPLK) has continued to drive its product portfolio through enhanced AI features, which may improve performance, profitability, and data security. Its open-source platform is available on the cloud, saving time and cost to deploy.

According to Splunk chief technology officer Tim Tully, “Our latest wave of innovation is intended to arm customers with the tools needed to translate AI into actionable intelligence. While AI and machine learning often seem like unattainable and expensive pipe dreams, Splunk Cloud and Splunk Enterprise now make it easier and more affordable to monitor, analyze and visualize machine data in real time.”

The application of AI may help Splunk customers forecast looming outages and see how its service could be affected by these upcoming outages, thereby avoiding risks. Splunk also announced the launch of Splunk Industrial Asset Intelligence, which allows manufacturers to monitor and analyze industrial IoT (Internet-of-Things) data in real time.

Product launches driving customer additions

Innovative product launches are driving customer growth and safeguarding Splunk’s business against large and medium enterprises such as IBM (IBM), Tableau Software (DATA), and Teradata (TDC).

The graph above shows Splunk’s total customer additions in the last five years. It has added ~10,200 clients at an average of 2,040 customers per year.
