Sumo Logic announced the establishment of a subsidiary, Sumo Logic Japan KK.

To further demonstrate its commitment to the region, the company has hired enterprise sales veteran Robert Stevenson who will lead the sales and go-to-market functions for the newly established Japan region. With more than 20 years of experience in the Asia Pacific region, Stevenson comes to Sumo Logic from Lenovo where he was President of the Japan Data Center Division. He has also held similar positions at BEA Systems, Tanium, Documentum, Dell EMC, Avaya and OpenText.

In addition, Sumo Logic launched a new Amazon Web Services (AWS) instance in the APAC region (Tokyo) to provide a holistic view of global data.

“As organizations across the globe continue to invest in cloud infrastructure strategies, machine data remains at the epicenter of these digital initiatives,” said Steve Fitz, Chief Revenue Officer, Sumo Logic. “Japan is quickly moving towards broader adoption of the cloud with a need to effectively address security concerns, so the market opportunity for Sumo Logic is ripe as we are able to deliver scalable, real-time machine data analytics that provide critical operational and security insights. We are excited to extend our global presence in Japan as part of our overall global expansion strategy to help enterprises manage and secure their modern applications and infrastructures as they make the shift to the cloud.”

In conjunction, Sumo Logic announced its first regional partnership with AWS APN Premium Consulting Partner, Classmethod. The partnership will help Japanese customers maximize their investment in the Sumo Logic platform by providing local guided deployment, support and storage in AWS. In addition, Sumo Logic provides the backbone for Classmethod’s AWS infrastructure to provide the continuous intelligence needed to serve and expand their portfolio of customers.
