We are thrilled to welcome the VictorOps team to the Splunk family as we extend Splunk’s vision of using data as the backbone of IT.”

“We founded VictorOps to give teams a naturally collaborative way to quickly resolve incidents,” said Todd Vernon, CEO, VictorOps. “By combining VictorOps incident management capabilities and the Splunk platform, organizations will be able to quickly resolve and even help prevent issues that degrade customer engagement. We look forward to joining Splunk and working together to help solve these complex challenges facing every Development and DevOps team.”

Thousands of customers use Splunk Enterprise to proactively monitor, visualize and get answers from their machine data. The combination of Splunk Enterprise and VictorOps will deliver a ‘Platform of Engagement’– combining monitoring, event management, on-call management and ChatOps. Ultimately, this enables modern engineering and operations teams to quickly solve problems in high-velocity deployment environments to maximize customer success.

Nearly all of the purchase price consideration will be paid in cash, funded from Splunk’s balance sheet.
