The Data Science of Silo Busting – Bringing Mainframe Big Data into Splunk

SiliconANGLE’s theCUBE is ever present at key technology industry events, interviewing executives and customers to stay on top of key industry trends.  This is how they consistently keep their promise of “separating the signal from the noise.” Yesterday, at Splunk’s annual user conference, .conf2015, host John Furrier and co-host Jeff Frick, GM of theCUBE, interviewed Syncsort President Josh Rogers.

In this interview, Josh discusses “silo busting,” a key trend in Big Data analytics, as well as the new release of Ironstream which now feeds more real-time, mainframe security data into Splunk; giving business line managers a 360-degree view of their organization’s operational data.

Watch the full interview below to learn how a dinner conversation at Strata + Hadoop World in 2013 led to creation of Syncsort’s relationship with Splunk, and eventually the development of Ironstream.


Watch Syncsort President Josh Rogers at Splunk .conf 2015 with John Furrier and Jeff Frick. Listen about the Syncsort relationship with Splunk and what value it’s bringing to customers.

For many organizations, the mainframe is the “system of record” and mainframe data is critical to making big data repositories valuable.  Having a strong relationship with Splunk and leading Hadoop distributors, Syncsort possesses the mainframe and data integration expertise to integrate and move data into repositories for analytics, as business analytics aren’t all that interesting without mainframe data.

Syncsort just announced the new release of Ironstream which addresses more customer use cases, including 6 new apps for Splunkbase that reflect production deployments, and leverage data collected by Syncsort’s recently acquired Zen z/OS® suite to provide IBMz network and security data and alerts to Splunk solutions for advanced visual analytics.
