Splunk Platform with Spiros Xanthos

Splunk is a monitoring and logging platform that has evolved over its 18 years of existence. In its modern focus on observability it is focused on open source and AIOps. Observability has evolved with the growth of Kubernetes, and Splunk’s work around OpenTelemetry has kept parity with the open source community of Kubernetes.

Spiros Xanthos is the general manager of observability at Splunk. He joins the show to talk about Splunk’s modern product portfolio and his work on his own company prior to being acquired by Splunk.
