The Splunk Apptitude App Contest is an online competition designed to find the next big app using Splunk software. Whether it’s the next cutting edge visualization, or a highly technical security app – we want your big ideas.

But there are no big ideas in big data without the data. And while we want to support your most creative approaches, everyone can use a little guidance. The following are suggested data sets (only suggestions - not required) for the types of data that you might use in your Splunk Apptitude entry by category. Please be sure to visit the official rules for more detail and full requirements. 


Fraud / Insider Threat: We have you covered!
