Splunk Inc appoints C8 Consulting to drive brand awareness in the UK

Reading, UK, 1st August 2011-.C8 Consulting Ltd, the premier PR and marketing agency for the Thames Valley, announced today that it has been appointed by international enterprise software company, Splunk Inc, to work on a six-month PR campaign to increase the company’s visibility and to raise the profile of its versatile and highly functional product in the UK.

Headquartered in San Francisco, privately owned Splunk Inc is the leading provider of operational intelligence software. Providing end-to-end visibility and new operational insights, Splunk enables organisations to monitor and improve service levels, reduce operational costs, mitigate security risks, enable compliance and create new product and service offerings. Over half of the Fortune 100 companies use Splunk, including the BBC, BT, Visa, LinkedIn and the US Department of Energy, to improve service, reduce cost and minimise security risks across their physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures.

Splunk Inc has already achieved considerable success with analyst organisation Gartner recently naming the company as one of the USA’s ‘Cool Vendors in IT Operations’ and the San Francisco Business Times acknowledged Splunk to be the “Fastest Growing Tech & Innovation Company of 2011.” SC Magazine UK also awarded Splunk with the ‘Best Integrated Security’ title at its 2010 awards. Revenue for this financial year reflects the company’s success and strong progress and is predicted to rise from $66 million to $100 million. C8 Consulting is looking forward to strengthening Splunk’s already impressive success in the UK by promoting the versatility and full capabilities of its operational intelligence product, as well as the overall awareness of the company by raising Splunk’s profile within UK IT, business and national publications.

Paula Elliott, Managing Director of C8 Consulting Ltd, has expressed her delight to be working with such a rapidly-growing company: “Splunk has remarkable potential. The brand’s position as the engine for machine data has not yet been fully understood in the UK, but once we have helped raise awareness of its operational intelligence capabilities the scope for company growth and development will be even more exciting.”

Jenny Harper, EMEA Marketing Manager at Splunk added: “C8 has extensive IT industry experience, impressive PR strategies and strong relationships with the UK IT and business media. C8 works with clients in industries very similar to our own which makes them perfectly placed to reach out to those who use our product, such as operations specialists, administrators and application support teams. We very much look forward to working with the team at C8.”
