Doug Merritt

President and CEO


Every company that was slow to embrace digital transformation pre-COVID likely hoped that somewhere in the “near future” they would get to adopting new technologies and reducing their reliance on and/or completely eliminating their legacy systems. Little did they know, a global pandemic would ground them into a difficult reality and expose the holes in that approach.

CEOs, CIOs and other C-somethings have realized their time is up on digital. It’s time to act. Never has “progress over perfect” been more necessary than now — as the Digital Age takes over.

This Fireside Chat features Splunk CEO Doug Merritt and Futurum Research’s Daniel Newman — part of our General Session — and covers the harsh truth that a data-driven mindset is no longer a “nice-to-have,” but rather an essential part of business and thoughts on how to get there.

Splunk is all about helping customers turn machine data into answers, in powerful ways. Customers use a variety of Splunk solutions to solve their toughest IT, Internet of Things, and security challenges. Watch Doug’s Fireside Chat discussion and you’ll be on your way to discovering your company’s “aha moment” sooner than you might have imagined.
