Nanyang Polytechnic Brings Splunk(R) Into the Classroom

Singapore Education Institution Uses Splunk to Teach the Importance of Big Data (March 28, 2012)

SINGAPORE -- (Marketwire) -- 03/28/12 -- Splunk Inc., the leading provider of software for real-time operational intelligence, today announced its collaboration with Singapore's Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP) to bring Splunk software into the classroom. NYP is at the forefront of schools equipping students with the skills necessary to derive valuable real-time data insights and manage big data effectively, especially massive streams of machine data.

"Our desire to incorporate operational insights and security intelligence into our curriculum made Splunk a natural fit," said Mr. Lai Poh Hing, Director, School of Information Technology at Nanyang Polytechnic. "Students need to understand the power of deriving insights from machine-generated data across the IT infrastructure and enterprise systems that run the business, and be able to see and solve operational and security-related challenges proactively."

Beginning in April 2012, students at School of Information Technology in courses such as Specialist Diploma in IT Security, Diploma in Information Security and Diploma in Information Technology will have hands-on training with Splunk software in relevant course modules.

More than 150 students at NYP are expected to be trained annually using Splunk software. This will establish a platform for NYP's industry partners to engage students in projects that leverage Splunk's patented technologies. The collaboration will also prepare students for high-value jobs, and facilitate industry attachments for students at local and international offices.

According to Godfrey Sullivan, Splunk's Chairman and CEO, universities and other higher education institutions are embracing Splunk software. More than 300 universities, colleges and institutes of higher learning are currently using Splunk software to garner critical insights through real-time searching, trouble-shooting, monitoring and analysis of their machine data.

"Today's educational institutions must deliver rich research portfolios, effective educational experiences, and transparency of information for accountability and compliance, all under increasingly difficult budgetary circumstances. Splunk is actively supporting universities that want to use our software to better manage their IT operations, and also to incorporate Splunk into their advanced technology curriculums. NYP clearly understands that the organizations and IT professionals of tomorrow can benefit from what big machine data can tell them," Sullivan concluded.
