Splunk Partner Panel Q&A – Barcelona

I was recently given the opportunity to visit Barcelona to attend theĀ Splunk EMEA Partner Technical Symposium. The sessions were of really high quality and the networking / discussions with colleagues in the industry and the Splunkers themselves was great!

I was also asked to take part in the Partner Panel which was a core session and explored a number of questions to the panel across the following areas:

  • Highlighting Splunk Value
  • Implementation Challenges
  • Gaining Support / Communicating with Splunk
  • Many More!

I hope to write some follow-up posts answering some of these so they are preserved as the Q&A was really interesting and (I hope) enlightening.
