New Customer Insights, Reduce Costs and Manage Risk

Singapore – June 20, 2011 – Splunk, the leading provider of operational intelligence

software, today announced the opening of its APAC regional headquarters in Hong Kong to

support growing customer demand in Asia Pacific countries. Splunk is experiencing rapidly

accelerating adoption in the region across industries and sectors including telecom, online

PAYMENT SERVICES in Japan, Bakrie Telecom in Indonesia and Hostworks and Seven

Network in Australia, among others, as new customers in APAC during the first quarter

ending April 30, 2011. Enterprises worldwide are looking to Splunk to gain actionable

business insights from massive machine data, one of the most challenging and fastest

growing segments of “big data.” Unlike traditional data management tools, Splunk is

specifically architected for the size, complexity and rapid growth of machine data.

To help drive customer success in the region, Splunk has doubled its personnel in the region

and increased local training resources. “Asia Pacific represents a key market for Splunk and

we are thrilled to see customers use the product to gain the operational intelligence critical

to business success,” said Robert Lau, Vice President of Asia Pacific and Japan. “Along with

strengthening our APAC presence, we have successfully extended our local support

capabilities and enhanced service levels for all clients in the region.”

business leaders with real-time operational intelligence from their machine data.

“Splunk has helped us facilitate the journey from firefighting to a more pro-active, strategic

IT team. It really allows us to leverage the data we have at our fingertips. Now we have the

ability to do more, identify important events before they happen, and better plan for the

future,” said Shaun Butler, Senior Technology Specialist, Corporate Express Australia.
