+ Watch SPLK
on My Watchlist
prime cadidate for acquistion
Just like the name.
high growth technology
Demand for data is growing exponentially, and I wouldn't mind if the NASDAQ hired Splunk to figure out why they keep poo-pooing the market, especially on a great trading day. The ability to analyze, organize, and most importantly, monazite date is here to stay, and this company does it very well and for a broad market. It does not have to be specific to your business, Splunk can set up anywhere and tell you what is happening.
Splunk is capturing corporate america and replacing many long established monitoring tools.
Impressive company, but at 20+ times sales, I wouldn't be a buyer, here. Underperform.
Something is not adding up here. What can Splunk do that IBM and Salesforce cannot? How can this company have so little in revenue but such a huge market cap, and when exactly does Splunk recognize revenue? Is Splunk going to be profitable before their cash infusion from the IPO runs out? I acknowledge that Splunk has the chance to do really well 5 years down the line, but competition is coming and I don't know if Splunk can beat them out without marketing their service much more than they already are.
I work at one of the largest government agencys. We are currently in process of getting rid of HP's Arcsight due to the cost and slow searching speeds. We are in the process of switching over the Splunk. Which is faster, cheaper, and more reliable.
I'm an IT professional and this is the software we waant to use!
The Big Data trend is here to stay. But only are few companies are really enabling others to get the most out of the data they're bringing in. Splunk is one of those companies.
Lou Grant: "You know somethin', kid. You got splunk."Mary Richards: "Gosh, do you really think so, Mr. Grant?"Lou Grant: "Yeah, I hate splunk!"
Revenue increases from 18 Million in 2008 to projected 175 million in 2012
SPLUNK is an indispensable tool for IT Teams of any software company. Facebook and Apple tried to mould open source software to mimic what it does, finally gave up and acquired licenses of splunk. Their licensing models are based on how much data you index. And lets face it, there is always more data and not less. So even existing customer end up buying a even bigger license over time. The tool is not cheap, but ROI is tremendous in the form of issue resolution and proactive trend alerts. Its THE big data company to own IMHO.
Ahead of the curve here; don't believe the hype...
