Splunk has received a patent for its method of organizing and presenting big data to mirror the experience of browsing links on the web. Splunk has a unique approach to the problem of
analyzing massive amounts of machine-generated data by space linking one event to another with pseudo-hyperlinks.

Transformation is on their agenda. Transforming the way big data is approached from an analytics problem to a web problem and transforming its product from an indexing engine into an application engine.

Gigaom brought this news to our attention in their article, “Splunk wants to webify big data.”
Everybody is interested in big data, but it is still intimidating for many. It will be interesting to see what new products will come out of this in the future.
