Last Challenge for SCCM - The two winners are MIA

I hope they did not pay the two winners (1st and 2nd place) for the SCCM Splunk Aptitude Contest that closed in January 2015? Is so, I hope they have something in this challenge, that you must add your winning solution to SplunkBase with all components and it must be validated by a Splunk employee before the payout happens? They both had some very cool entries - 1st place winner has fallen off the internet and 2nd place is missing files. This contest adds very little value unless the Winning applications are put in SplunkBase and validated by Splunk employees for others to use.

    Hi Mark - Great question, thanks for reaching out.

    There were two great apps that were put together. We worked with both of the winners in the SCCM category, in which they decided to collaborate with one another. Rather than having two separate SCCM Apps that provide different value points, they've combined the Apps!

    It was just submitted yesterday as a combined app and one more validation of the App is being performed this week. We plan on having this up on Splunkbase in the next week or so. It's taken longer than anticipated during our initial launch of this program - but the lessons learned will help us for this round.

    Ryan, I appreciate the quick update! Looking forward to the combined SCCM application and seeing it in Splunkbase. Also looking forward to this new contest! Good Luck to all participants!
