Revealing the magic: Key to a Successful Cloud Transition

Panel Discussion:
Moderator: Priti Vijayvargiya, Platform Product Marketing Director, Splunk
Tom Stoner, Director, Cloud Sales, Splunk
Jim Donn, Principal Sales Engineer, Splunk
William Searle, Technology Manager - Splunk & Security, NHS Digital

Abstract: Successful cloud transition increases your organization’s agility, reduces costs, decreases time to market and accelerates innovations. But the move to cloud can bring additional complexities that can limit the benefits of your cloud migrations. In this panel discussion, industry experts will share their real-world experiences about how to address these complexities and maximize the benefits of moving to a cloud, multicloud or hybrid environment. See how Splunk is aiding your cloud transition with the Cloud Migration Assessment App, an app designed to provide you with guidance and best practices for a successful cloud migration based on the analysis of your on-premises deployments.

Modernizing IT With Data-Driven Performance Monitoring

Speaker: Mala Pillutla, AVP, Global IT Markets Sales Specialization, Splunk

Abstract: Today's IT and DevOps teams are challenged to monitor increasingly complex cloud services and mission-critical applications using traditional tools that lead to swivel-chair approaches, runaway costs and siloed operational data. This creates blind spots that slow the pace of innovation, impact customer experiences negatively and hinder teams’ abilities to detect and resolve issues quickly. What if there was a way to unify monitoring and investigation across the entire cloud stack? Wouldn’t the jobs of IT and Cloud Operations teams be so much easier if there were consolidated views enabling faster mean-time-to-detect (MTTD) and mean-time-to-resolution (MTTR)? Hear how Splunk is helping organizations across the globe to accelerate their cloud journey with our real-time, massively scalable, and analytics-driven infrastructure investigation and monitoring solution for hybrid- and multicloud environments.

Achieving Real-time Outcomes With Advances in Data Streaming and Machine Learning

Speakers: Mohan Rajagopalan, Senior Director of Product Management, Machine Learning, Splunk and Lila Fridley, Senior Product Manager, Splunk

Abstract: Do you sometimes feel like you’re drinking from a firehose trying to keep pace with your data? Are you buried in a continuous flow of logs and metrics? Rather than drowning in a data deluge, machine learning (ML) can help you make sense of your data and uncover valuable insights in real time. Applying ML to a stream of data — rather than performing offline (batch) model development and training — will help you to reduce resource-heavy computations and uncover insights faster than ever. Join us to learn more about Splunk’s new Streaming ML framework. We’ll introduce you to algorithms developed specifically for online learning and walk you through models that learn on the fly, automatically updating as new data is observed.

Architecting a Winning Security Strategy

Speaker: Eric Schou, AVP, Head of Security Marketing, Splunk

Abstract: The need for a comprehensive cloud security strategy is more pressing now than ever before to maximize the benefits of your cloud transition. See how the Splunk® platform can help strengthen cyber defenses across your multicloud and hybrid environments to address the additional complexities, digital blind spots and new attack vectors that arise from your cloud transition.
