Splunk Joins The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy to
Harness Big Data for Innovation
Splunk4Good Analyzing Regulations.gov Data Set to Democratize Data, Making It
Valuable and Useful for Everyone
SAN FRANCISCO -- November 12, 2013
Splunk Inc. (NASDAQ:SPLK), provider of the leading software platform for
real-time operational intelligence, announced the company will be
participating today in a White House event, Data to Knowledge to Action:
Building New Partnerships, at the Ronald Reagan Building and International
Trade Center, 1300 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, DC. Splunk was selected to
participate as part of the Obama Administration’s call for technology leaders
to help harness the power of data to advance national goals of economic
growth, education, health, clean energy and regional innovation.
At the event, Christy Wilson, vice president of product operations, Splunk,
will moderate a Big Data Innovation panel that will explore how the big data
community can uncover new ways to address many challenges the nation faces
today related to national and regional economic development, education,
healthcare, energy, climate change and transportation. Panel participants will
include Joris van Dam, translational sciences strategic project leader at
Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research and Dr. Eng Lim Goh, senior vice
president and CTO of SGI.
“Government is making tangible progress on the big data goals set forth by the
Obama Administration’s big data research and development initiative, but we
have only just begun,” said Wilson. “Projects dedicated to reducing traffic
congestion, improving healthcare costs and increasing energy efficiency in
commercial buildings only scratch the surface. Splunk is honored to be part of
this White House initiative because it strongly aligns with our own corporate
vision of delivering operational intelligence through civic innovation at a
national and local level.”
Wilson will also speak to attendees about Splunk4Good, the social
responsibility initiative at Splunk. The initiative has made great strides to
innovate federal and local civic engagement using Regulations.gov, the
centralized portal for all federal regulatory dockets, including proposed
rules, and publicly submitted comments. The Splunk4Good team is analyzing
Regulations.gov’s large and complex data and creating a new, public interface
that enables users to explore the federal regulatory data through real-time
dashboards and visualizations. The end result will make millions of regulatory
documents more accessible, searchable and usable to the general public.
