This IDC Market Note discusses Cisco's acquisition of Splunk that positions both companies, and their customers, for greater success in this hyper-connected, ever-threatened, and data-intensive digital era. Potential synergies and advancements abound with a combined Cisco and Splunk. It also serves to shake up the technology industry across major fronts (e.g., networking, observability, and AIOps). While the combination of Cisco and Splunk is certainly poised for success, there are no guarantees here. These are two major industry players that must weave together wide-ranging portfolios and well-established practices.
