Splunk Inc. (NASDAQ:SPLK), provider of a software platform for real-time operational intelligence including cloud analytics, has announced support for SaaS Contracts in AWS Marketplace. The new globally available API capability would enable seamless procurement and deployment of Splunk Cloud.
The automated and accelerated purchasing process for Splunk Cloud via AWS Marketplace would ensure fast time-to-value for customers leveraging Splunk solutions to gain real-time security, operational and cost management insights across their Amazon Web Services (AWS Cloud) and hybrid environment.
