The Splunk Revolution Awards

We’re always excited to hear about the cool, inspiring ways our customers are using Splunk® software. That’s why we established the Splunk Revolution Awards—to distinguish individual Splunk users and recognize their achievements in multiple categories. So here’s your chance to nominate yourself or one of your colleagues! Fame and glory (okay, a nifty awards plaque) could be yours!

2015 Award Categories

The Developers Award

Are you a kickass developer? Have you expanded the capabilities of Splunk software at your organization using the Splunk SDKs, REST APIs or other tools? Submit your APP…lication for the Developers Award! (see what we did there?)

The Enterprise Award

Have you had to overcome technical and staffing challenges or internal resistance to enable the Splunk platform to shine at your organization? Have you resolved a business or scaling issue with Splunk software? Then this is the category for you!

The Innovation Award

Have you used the Splunk platform to solve a unique problem within your organization or uncovered a new business opportunity? Have you developed a new app or integrated multiple apps into a cross-platform solution? If you’re doing something exciting or unusual, we want to hear all about it!

The Social Impact Award

Passionate about making a big difference with big data? Have you used open data to build a kickass app that increases transparency, improves public decision-making or reveals hidden insights? Tell us how you’re using Splunk software and open data to solve a big, hairy social problem!

The "Splunk Ninja" Award

This category distinguishes those individuals who have proven themselves to be Splunk champions. Do you live, eat, breathe and sleep all things Splunk? Do people at work come to you with their Splunk needs? Have you inspired others to download and start using Splunk software? Then you just might be a Splunk Ninja. Tell us more!
