Splunk

Top Executive: CEO Doug Merritt

Under the moniker “Data-to-Everything,” Splunk, based in San Francisco, develops and markets its Splunk Enterprise and Splunk Cloud Platform for a range of big data tasks, particularly in security, IT and DevOps.

In addition to the platform, Splunk offers its own applications for those tasks, such as Unified Security Operations and Infrastructure Monitoring & Troubleshooting. ISVs and in-house developers also build applications that leverage the platform’s big data capabilities.

Splunk just hired former AWS and Microsoft executive Teresa Carlson as president and chief growth officer, overseeing the company’s sales, marketing and customer-focused operations.
