As a business technology advisor and implementer, Zetta, a member of the iSPartners Group of companies, announced that it has become a Splunk software reseller and will be building its expertise in Splunk software.

Says Marc Scheepbouwer, MD of Zetta: "We are really impressed by Splunk's ability to turn data into operational intelligence." Operational intelligence (OI) enables real-time analysis of big data in motion - delivering complete business insight in milliseconds. It is totally unique in its approach and has taken the world by storm. Fast Company has named Splunk one of the World's Most Innovative Companies. Splunk is ranked fourth overall for "bringing big data to the masses". Fast Company also ranks the Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in 10 categories, including big data, where Splunk is number one.

"Splunk customers are generating insight from massive volumes of machine data in seconds and minutes, instead of hours, days or weeks," said Steve Sommer, chief marketing officer, Splunk.

Splunk was named as a leader in the 2013 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management (SIEM). It complements existing BI implementations by continuously analysing streaming data generated by diverse sources across business processes, applications, networks and devices. OI enables fully informed decisions that maximise business impact. Rising "data inflation" is now affecting all companies. Splunk software improves business productivity by enabling enterprises to analyse, in real time, massive volumes of raw data, in order to communicate the right information to the right people at the right time.

Splunk Enterprise is an innovative solution for monitoring, management, analysis and cyber security in all types of IT infrastructures, whether physical, virtual or in the cloud. Zetta will use Splunk software to help improve the performance of clients' IT infrastructures and applications. The major advantage of Splunk software lies in its ability to index, manage, analyse and visualise any type of raw machine data generated by applications (CRM, ERP, etc), systems or equipment (syslog, GPS, RFID, etc). Splunk Enterprise is easy to install in all types of IT structures.

According to Justin Makore, Channel Manager: "Splunk greatly values this alliance, which allows even more organisations in South Africa to gain operational intelligence from their IT infrastructures."
