The internet of things is about data. So don’t miss last week’s podcast about data and the Quirky Wink smart home hub review.
The internet of things is about data. So this week’s podcast we talk to a Splunk executive who connected his home and uses the data to inform his lifestyle and purchases.
Splunk is switching CTOs, as co-founder Erik Swan is stepping down to be replaced by former Yahoo exec and Continuuity co-founder Todd Papaioannou.
A third of businesses are already creating products associated with the internet of things but the evolution of connected networks will likely evolve faster in the corporate, rather than the consumer world.
Splunk is furthering its evolution beyond IT search with a new set of features that make it easier for business users to create, analyze and visualize machine-generated data sets. With lots of competition popping up everyday, Splunk can’t rest on its laurels.
Startup says it can make data logs more understandable and thus more valuable to a non-techie audience. Now it has money to market it accordingly.

VMware sees an opportunity to help customers get a hold on unstructured data to understand what’s going on with their infrastructure. Its new Log Insight software will let companies do that.
One startup pitching in the enterprise-focused Alchemist Accelerator’s second class envisions widespread adoption of an alternative to logging applications: recording and replaying them.
More computer malware that targets the energy industry has been found. Are power companies ready for these types of attacks? As the power grid and energy companies embrace digital technology, wireless networks, and big data, they’ll have to also embrace the security tools of the Internet.
In publishing, there’s a constant struggle to determine who’ll read what posts, what the ideal headline might is and when is the best time to publish. GigaOM is teaming with Splunk to find some answers via a Kaggle competition worth a total of $25,000 in prizes.
There’s nothing quite like a hypothetical about someone setting a whole block on fire after cutting off the fire department’s electric supply in order to slow its response. Is it comforting to know that smart people and smart analytics could help stop it from happening?
The highly anticipated Splunk IPO has not disappointed, with shares up 90 percent from their opening price at one point. Intense trading tripped NYSE circuit breakers. Surging interest in Splunk reflects a belief that the era of big data is just beginning.
Splunk’s IPO has been much anticipated with good reason. Splunk’s machine data search, analytics and visualization technologies address the gap between the reams of big data generated by the second and the ability to parse and display that data in a meaningful way.
