Cloud service enables a customer to use hosted software over the contract period without taking possession of the software. Splunk’s Cloud Platform facilitates the customer to collect, monitor, search, report, and analyze all the real-time as well as historical machine data. Cloud service is centrally and uniformly distributed by Splunk to its large customer base which includes customers ranging from Fortune 100 companies to small and medium-sized businesses. Splunk manages and regularly updates its cloud platform service so that all its customers can receive the most current features and functionality. Splunk recognizes the revenues generated from cloud services, over the associated subscription term. Splunk Cloud’s annual subscription fees are based on either the volume of data indexed per day or purchased infrastructure and data storage the customers require.

License revenues are recognized from term license and perpetual license which allows the customer a right to use the software.

License revenues are recognized from sales of licenses to new customers and by selling additional licenses to existing customers which also includes renewal of term licenses.

Splunk’s revenue has decreased due to its transition to the subscription model.

This decrease in license revenues was partly compensated by an increase in cloud services revenues.
