August 29, 2011

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Splunk, the leading provider of operational intelligence software, today announced its participation at Dreamforce to be held Aug. 30 to Sept. 2, 2011 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Doug Harr, Splunk CIO, will take part in a roundtable session at the event where CIOs will discuss how to increase their leadership in social community creation and mobile outreach using an open portfolio of technologies and services. Attendees will learn the CIOs’ perspectives on how to create a social enterprise via the adoption of cloud technologies.

WHAT: The Social, Mobile and Open CIO: Launching the Social Enterprise–The roundtable sessions will be addressing the themes surrounding the cloud and the changing role of the CIO:

Cloud only hints at what you don’t need to do:

  • “Social” describes what your workers and customers want
  • “Mobile” describes what they need
  • “Open” describes the freedom to do it the way that works for them

Cost reduction is not the path to leadership:

  • Cloud models facilitate precise allocation of costs to business tasks
  • Superior ROI and compelling time-to-market advantage change the terms of debate surrounding IT investments and resources

The job of CIO is changing:

  • Integrator of services, rather than buyer and operator of technologies
  • Instigator and manager of innovative tools and processes
  • Enabler and custodian of priceless relationships and intelligence

WHO: Expert panelists include:

  • Bill Swislow, Classified Ventures LLC
  • Bill Hicks, CIOforce
  • Doug Harr, Splunk
  • Steve Ellis, SEllis Test Company
  • Cloud Moldt, salesforce.com
