I’m pleased to announce that Doug Harr, the CIO at Splunk, a leading provider of real-time operational intelligence solutions, will present his views about how the Cloud is redefining business intelligence (BI) and analytics at the Cloud Analytics Summit on Wednesday, April 25 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA.The Cloud Analytics Summit will provide a meeting place for corporate decision-makers to learn about the latest Cloud solutions aimed at addressing their BI and analytics needs, so they can harness their ‘Big Data’ sources, and integrate their systems and applications into a more productive enterprise-wide resource to satisfy their corporate requirements.

Doug Harr has been in the forefront of the migration to Cloud-based, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solutions over the past decade, leading IT organizations at a number of leading companies such as Ingres Corporation, Portal Software and Hewlett Packard.

At Splunk, Doug is responsible for the team which supports the company’s strategies and satisfies its IT needs by using private and public cloud solutions. Doug oversees Splunk’s corporate analytics and internal Splunk implementation to deliver web analytics, application management, security forensics and operational intelligence for the company at large. Splunk was recently named Application Performance Management Innovator by Gartner. Doug is also a member of the CISE CIO consortium, a faculty member for the CIO Executive Development Program at San Francisco State University, and lectures at several other universities and CIO forums. 

Doug’s participation in the Cloud Analytics Summitis an example of the innovative thinkers coming together for this executive forum aimed at providing an intimate environment to discuss key trends, showcase innovative solutions, and trade best practices.

Michael Crandell, the Founder and CEO of RightScale, is another innovative thinker who will present the opening keynote presentation at our Cloud Management Summit on June 19 at the Computer History Museum.
