SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Inc. (NASDAQ:SPLK), provider of the leading software platform for
real-time Operational Intelligence, today announced that Cox Automotive,
a leading automotive services company, is using Splunk® Cloud and Splunk
IT Service Intelligence (ITSI) to gain actionable insight into the
company's rapidly accelerating digital business. Splunk solutions help
Cox Automotive keep critical services online during revenue-generating
events, monitor its products and IT infrastructure across all 28 Cox
Automotive brands and identify new revenue streams.

Cox Automotive is transforming the way the world buys, sells and owns
cars with industry-leading digital marketing, software, financial,
wholesale and e-commerce solutions for consumers, dealers, manufacturers
and the overall automotive ecosystem worldwide. The Cox Automotive
family includes Autotrader, Dealer.com, Dealertrack, Kelley Blue Book,
Manheim, NextGear Capital, vAuto, Xtime and a host of other brands.
"Digital transformation is reshaping the automotive world and our
business, and Splunk solutions are helping keep Cox Automotive ahead of
the competition," said Ken Gavranovic, vice president of technology, Cox
Automotive. "Having an application or infrastructure service go down
during an online auction, for example, is not an option. Splunk ITSI and
Splunk Cloud have drastically improved the way Cox Automotive monitors
its business critical services. Splunk ITSI delivers a cohesive way to
interpret and visualize our machine data - helping us protect and
discover new sources of revenue."
Cox Automotive uses Splunk solutions across all of its brands. For
example, Manheim, which provides auction services for specialized
dealerships, has a dealer-to-dealer car auction simulcast business that
has become increasingly complex. In these auctions, dealers bid on
inventory in-person, from desktop computers or mobile devices. There are
up to 32 lanes of bidding at each auction, all of which generate
real-time machine data from network gear, switches, routers, cameras,
Wi-Fi access points and more. Cox Automotive now has visibility into
issues that affect the performance and availability of each lane. Like
an e-commerce website, every minute the auction service is down or
sluggish adds up to tremendous financial losses. Cox reports that Splunk
solutions boost the bottom line by reducing auction incidents by more
than 90 percent and shortening the mean-time-to-resolution.
While Cox Automotive runs in a hybrid environment, the company's
cloud-based IT infrastructure is built on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Cox
Automotive also relies on Splunk Cloud and the Splunk App for AWS to
support its digital business across all environments.
"Every organization in the world is undergoing digital transformation,
and organizations such as Cox Automotive are seizing the advantage by
turning massive amounts of data into an opportunity to gain a
competitive edge," said Rick Fitz, senior vice president of IT markets,
Splunk. "As a machine learning-powered monitoring solution, Splunk ITSI
and Splunk Cloud fuel success at organizations by employing analytics to
find root cause faster and lower mean-time-to-resolution."
