Splunk builds software that lets you search, report, monitor and analyze live-streaming and historical data across the entire data spectrum, from IT to Marketing to Operations, all from one place and in real time. Getting a vast variety of massive data in and ready for analysis is never easy.

The high performing Cloud and Data Platform team redefines how data is found, moved, processed and made relevant at scale previously thought impossible.
