Splunk: Guggenheim Excited That Competitor ArcSight May Be Starved of Funds

Shares of Big Data and analytics software maker Splunk (SPLK ) are up $1.48, or 2.6%, at $58.61, after Guggenheim ’s Nate Cunningham this morning raised his rating on the shares to Buy from Neutral, as he thinks the company can steal business from ArcSight. a competitor that Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE ) is divesting to Micro Focus International PLC (MCROL ).

Cunningham, who raises his price target a buck to $70, writes that he was concerned last October, when he downgraded the stock, about the “model transition” of Splunk, as it moved further into cloud computing.

Now, however, he sees a “jump ball worth $300 million in the form of ArcSight, whose operations he expects to be suddenly underfunded and vulnerable as ArcSight takes over.

Since going public, Splunk has rapidly grown into one of the largest providers of security information and event management (SIEM) software, and today IBM (IBM, NEUTRAL, $153.79) is the only vendor with more revenue in this category. Coming in third is HPE’s ArcSight, which Gartner estimates generated nearly $300 million in revenue in 2016. In September, HPE is scheduled to divest its Software business, including ArcSight, to the British infrastructure software provider Micro Focus (which already has a small SIEM offering). Micro Focus has publicly declared its intention to reduce costs in the software business, and we expect ArcSight’s product development investments to suffer as a result. While we believe that ArcSight’s installed base has been fertile ground for Splunk’s customer acquisition in recent years, we see the impending spin-out of the HPE Enterprise Software business as a potential catalyst for further installed base disruption, which should benefit Splunk.

Cunningham expects Micro Focus itself may help Splunk to lure away business, by starving the business of funds:

When HPE announced last fall that it would be divesting its software business to Micro Focus, the latter company made no secret of its intention to optimize the business for cash flow. In the text of its transaction announcement, Micro Focus stated that it plans to bring the operating margins of solutions representing

80% of HPE Software revenue from 21% to Micro Focus’ group- wide 46% within four years. This led The Telegraph to posit that job cuts were imminent at HPE Software, as Micro Focus’ acquisition playbook has typically involved using headcount reductions to take costs out of underperforming businesses. This leads us to believe that ArcSight’s product development costs–and thus potentially the quality of its products–are likely to decline following the divestiture.

script to trigger Machine policy or Hardware inventory action agent on SCCM clients

Posted on January 11, 2011 by Eswar Koneti | 28 Comments | 2,234 Views

There are lot of tools available like SCCM client center or Collection commander or Right Click Tools etc. to trigger SCCM client agent Actions using these tools but the customer environment doesn’t have any of these tools to use and we had a requirement to run the machine policy and other actions items as well.

I have used the below script to run(ex:Machine policy and evaluation cycle or hardware inventory action etc) on a list of computers that you have supplied in notepad.txt using psexec tool.The script reset the hardware inventory action and deletes the instance before running hardware inventory.

What do you require to carry out this task: A Share folder(create one) ,Psexec tool. Vb script(below) and batch script(below).

Open a notepad,copy the below code and save as trigger_policy.vbs.

‘Declare Variables
On Error Resume Next
Set sho = CreateObject(“WScript.Shell”)
strSystemRoot = sho.expandenvironmentstrings(“%SystemRoot%”)
strCurrentDir = Left(Wscript.ScriptFullName, (InstrRev(Wscript.ScriptFullName, “\”) -1))
Get a connection to the “root\ccm\invagt” namespace (where the Inventory agent lives)
Dim oLocator
Set oLocator = CreateObject(“WbemScripting.SWbemLocator”)
Dim oServices
Set oServices = oLocator.ConnectServer(. “root\ccm\invagt”)
‘Reset SMS Hardware Inventory Action to force a full HW Inventory Action
sInventoryActionID = “<00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000001>“
Delete the specified InventoryActionStatus instance
oServices.Delete “InventoryActionStatus.InventoryActionID=””” sInventoryActionID “”””
‘Pause 3 seconds To allow the action to complete.
wscript.sleep 3000
‘Run a SMS Hardware Inventory
Set cpApplet = CreateObject(“CPAPPLET.CPAppletMgr”)
Set actions = cpApplet.GetClientActions
For Each action In actions
If Instr(action.Name,”Hardware Inventory”) 0 Then
action.PerformAction
End If
Next

since the above script you have created is to trigger hardware inventory action ,You will have all the Actions ID given below for each.

    • Hardware Inventory – 00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000001

    • OOBS Discovery – 00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000120

You can see all the above actions item IDs from WMI. From Run command,type wbemtest and use the name space as ‘root\CCM\Policy\Machine ‘. It list all the classes (Dynamic or Static from WMI Repository).

Again,open notepad and copy the below code into it and save as name.bat

Now run the batch script which you created above from either command prompt or directly from folder.

Hope it helps someone who doesn’t use the automated tools.
