On" class="redactor-autoparser-object">https://www.sumologic.com/blog... behalf of my co-founder Christian Beedgen and the entire Sumo Logic team, I’m proud to be able to launch the Sumo Logic service. It’s been an intense and productive two years, and we’re extremely proud of what we have accomplished.
Christian and I spent nearly a decade together at Arcsight, the security log management company purchased by HP two years ago. We were amazed, pained and disappointed by how much enterprise software asks of its users. We had seen first hand the song and dance during sales cycles, weeks and months of professional services before you can get value out of your investment, documents and brochures meant more to obfuscate and impress than to help, as well as the glacial speed of innovation. As we talked together, we realized we both had the same goal: to develop enterprise software that was easy to deploy, was powerful yet simple, and that delivered on the promise of actionable insights from IT data. To that end, Sumo Logic was founded.
The timing couldn’t have been better. Enterprises and IT departments continue to drown in data, and the Cloud was becoming mainstream. We have become the first enterprise grade cloud-based service for log analysis. For the first time our customers have a service that delivers interactive and proactive analytics at an unprecedented scale minus all the complexity of outdated on-premise or home-grown solutions.
While launch day can be a day full of hyperbole, we passionately believe that Sumo Logic has the power to fundamentally turn log data into a critical asset for IT teams within enterprises. It’s a landmark day that we want to share and celebrate with our core team of employees, customers, investors and families.
