Splunk’s observability portfolio enables DevOps teams to process metrics, traces and logs with AI-driven analytics that enable deeper insights into critical systems in seconds.

“As organizations evolve, they move farther away from a manufacturing model of specialization, and silos will be broken down, particularly between DevOps and IT Ops. Teams will have to get better at reacting to speed and complexity,” said Fitz. “We are excited to deliver innovative, data-driven solutions that provide real-time insights into our customers’ entire technology stack and application lifecycle, for every kind of IT organization, anywhere in their journey of transformation.”
