REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwired - May 30, 2017) - Sumo Logic, the leading cloud-native, machine data analytics service, today announced it has been named an IDC Innovator in IT Operations Analytics. IDC Innovators reports present a set of vendors chosen by an IDC analyst within a specific market that offer an innovative new technology, a groundbreaking approach to an existing issue or an interesting new business model.

The new report, "IDC Innovators: IT Operations Analytics, 2017 (Doc #US42502217, May 2017)," profiles IT operations analytics vendors that optimize IT infrastructure, applications and end-user experience.

"Sumo Logic is one of those innovators expanding capabilities of IT operations analytics solutions."

The IDC Innovators report recognized Sumo Logic's cloud-native log management and analytics platform with its machine learning capabilities that can index and analyze a wide variety of sources.
