These shifts have provided unprecedented value to our customers by bringing Data-to-Everything,” said Doug Merritt, CEO of Splunk.

Outlook

For the first quarter, the management currently expects revenues of about $450 million, which is lower than the consensus forecast. Adjusted operating margin is expected to be negative 25%.
