Software firm Splunk has set out to expand in the Asia Pacific owing to what it said was the high demand for operational intelligence software.

Splunk has recently chosen Hong Kong as the site of its new regional headquarters and doubled its staff complement in the region as the company welcomed new clients.

Among the new clients that Splunk has added during its first quarter ending 30 April 2011 include China Eastern Airlines in China, Hynix Semiconductors in South Korea, Softbank Payment Services in Japan, Bakrie Telecom in Indonesia, and Hostworks and Seven Network in Australia.

"The Asia Pacific represents a key market for Splunk and we are thrilled to see customers use the product to gain the operational intelligence critical to business success," said Robert Lau, vice president, Asia Pacific and Japan. "Along with strengthening our Asia Pacific presence, we have successfully extended our local support capabilities and enhanced service levels for all clients in the region."

New insights

Splunk noted that companies worldwide are looking for more business insights from the massive data they are holding within their organisation. Splunk said it has the solutions to help companies derive business intelligence for complex and rapidly growing machine data.

Splunk said its operational intelligence software can monitor, report and analyse real-time machine data as well as terabytes of historical data located on-premise or in the cloud.

Organisations across the Asia Pacific are opting for operation intelligence solutions to gain new insights into their customers while at the same time reducing costs and managing risks. Splunk's customers adopting the new business intelligence solutions come from a range of industries and sectors including telecom, online services, banking, technology, retail and travel.
