Sumo Logic has announced significant growth in the EMEA region fuelled by customers adopting its platform and a rapidly expanding partner ecosystem delivering the machine data analytics insights needed to build, run and secure modern applications and infrastructures. To support this growth, Sumo Logic has appointed James Campanini as general manager and vice president and Mark Pidgeon as vice president of technical services and customer support for EMEA, to lead an expanded team from its new offices in Holborn, London.
Today’s modern applications are driving revenue-generating, digital services that are reliant on continuous improvement practices to ensure their customers’ experiences remain engaging, valuable and secure. Using machine data analytics can help drive better customer experience for end-customers while speeding time-to-market. According to a report from 451 Research, “Using Machine Data Analytics to Gain Advantage in the Analytics Economy,” reveals that 54 percent of organizations across EMEA recognize the value of machine data analytics to help in their journey to cloud or other digital transformation initiatives.
“As one of the world’s leading names in sports betting technology and trading, we generate massive quantities of pricing data across 23 sports 24/7, which is consumed by many of the largest betting operators. It’s critical that we have real-time visibility of our services to ensure accurate and fast pricing, robust trading services and the best end user experience for our customers and partners,” said Peter Wallis, CTO for Sporting Group. “Sumo Logic provided immediate value to our organization right out of the box. We’ve improved our ability to detect potential problems proactively, and generate real-time insights into our data, which were previously hidden. The fact that it’s all delivered as a powerful, modern platform for analysing our systems data is a bonus and we’re already looking at new use cases for leveraging Sumo Logic.”
