Splunk Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLK), the leading software platform for real-time
operational intelligence, today announced that Swisslos Interkantonale
Landeslotterie is using Splunk® Enterprise to gain a complete, integrated view
of all its IT operations. Splunk software enables real-time analysis and
greater system stability at Swisslos, which has a positive effect on Swisslos’
business.

The Swisslos Interkantonale Landeslotterie, founded in 1937, is a co-operative
organization. Swisslos offers, on behalf of twenty cantons and the
Principality of Liechtenstein, lottery, sports betting, bingo and a whole
range of lottery ticket offerings.

“Splunk closes the gap between people and data, which enables us to make
better decisions faster,” said Joris Vuffray, network and systems management
team leader, Swisslos. “Big data analysis is now easier than ever before at
Swisslos, and we gained operational intelligence almost immediately with the
extensive visualization features provided by Splunk software.”

Swisslos uses Splunk Enterprise to collect, index, analyze and visualize data
coming from a several IT systems in order to run IT operations management and
network security. Splunk software is pivotal to monitoring the games systems,
measuring the network and application security and registering compliance
policy violations. Swisslos also utilizes alerting within Splunk Enterprise to
warn teams about application problems before they become failures and to
identify and block complex fraudulent attacks.

“Splunk software helps to keep our games systems online. Additionally, our IT
training has been significantly reduced, freeing up my team’s time to work on
other critical projects,” said Vuffray.

“Like many Splunk customers, Swisslos first implemented Splunk software to
replace legacy technology with a real-time solution for IT operations
management. However, after quickly getting value from their Splunk deployment,
Swisslos implemented Splunk Enterprise across the organization with vast
datasets coming from several systems,” said Olav Strand, director of Germany,
Switzerland and Austria, Splunk. “Splunk software is an end-to-end solution
for complex IT and big data challenges which can greatly simplify your IT
infrastructure and provide significant business benefits, as Swisslos
discovered.”
