Factors to Consider

Splunk witnessed a robust demand for its security, enterprise and cloud solutions, which is expected to drive the top line in the fiscal third quarter.

Splunk launched a new partner program — Splunk Partnerverse Program — in October 2021, to empower its wide network of more than 2,200 partners. The program will help the partners to expand their expertise, demonstrate core competencies and showcase joint customer success.

In the to-be-reported quarter, Splunk expects total annual recurring revenues between $3.10 billion and $3.14 billion. Cloud ARR is anticipated in the range of $1.31 billion-$1.33 billion.

The company’s ever-expanding portfolio contributes immensely to customer growth. It revealed its latest enhancements to the Splunk observability portfolio, which includes advanced product innovations for Splunk Application Performance Monitoring (APM), Splunk Synthetic Monitoring, Splunk Real User Monitoring (RUM), Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring, Splunk Log Observer and Splunk IT Service Intelligence.

Splunk announced the addition of the latest enhancements to Splunk Enterprise and the Splunk Cloud Platform. The new additions will help customers to make radical data transformations to manage data better and accelerate their cloud-driven initiatives.

Splunk expanded its partner base by teaming up with Accenture ACN in October 2021. The integration of its products in partner solutions is estimated to enhance the company’s exposure, particularly among enterprise customers.
