    “Machine data” is the digital information created by devices from smartphones to cars, and Splunk is perhaps its foremost translator. Since 2003, the big-data analysis firm has been providing software and services to organizations to help them interpret and present real-time operational intelligence. Splunk’s list of more than 13,000 customers now includes at least 85 of the Fortune 100 companies. Revenues leaped 42% to $950 million last year, an explosive jump for Splunk. Part of the company’s strategy includes the nurturing of Splunkbase, a germinating community where ­users and partners have so far shared over 1,300 custom apps that run on Splunk’s software.
