“I have followed Splunk’s remarkable success from its earliest days,” said Papaioannou. “I have always been impressed by its unique culture, its top-notch leadership team and its ability to bring the benefits of operational intelligence to thousands of customers. What is most exciting to me is how Splunk is making its technology available for so many different use cases: whether it is operational intelligence on premises or in the cloud for application management, IT ops, security or business analytics, to name a few. As machine data becomes more pervasive, Splunk has an incredible opportunity to help people benefit from it in ways they had never imagined. I am honored to be joining Splunk during this exciting time.”“We are all indebted to our co-founders Erik Swan and Rob Das for their vision for Splunk,” said Sullivan. “Erik has effectively managed the transition of the Development and CTO roles, which is a rare leadership achievement in young companies.
