15:25 EDTMSFTAmazon cloud announcement unlikely to sink Splunk, analysts say
Amazon (AMZN) appears to be signaling an expanded presence in cloud-based data analytics, sending shares of incumbents in the space lower and prompting several analysts to weigh in on the e-commerce giant's potential impact. AMAZON CLOUD: Amazon is expected to announce a new "big data" analytics addition to Amazon Web Services, according to an October 4 Wall Street Journal report. The article follows the launch last week of Amazon Elasticsearch, adding further data crunching capabilities to the company's cloud computing platform. Commenting on the news, William Blair analyst Bhavan Suri said that Splunk (SPLK) investor concerns over Amazon are overblown. Elasticsearch is likely to remain primarily a document search platform rather than a direct competitor to Splunk's offerings, while Amazon's expected analytics announcement looks more likely to challenge Tableau (DATA) and Qlik (QLIK), the analyst argues. Meanwhile, FBR analyst Daniel Ives said that a tangential move into the data analytics space "makes a ton of strategic and financial sense" for Amazon, as the market is only about 10% penetrated despite aggressive expansion from Microstrategy (MSTR), IBM (IBM), Microsoft (MSFT), SAP (SAP), and others. That said, Ives cautioned that Amazon's ability to again disrupt the cloud space with this latest entry appear limited in the near term, with many companies already showing preference for pure-play analytics firms. Amazon may ultimately have to make a larger acquisition by picking up a Qlik, Tableau, or Splunk to gain traction, the analyst contended. PRICE ACTION: Splunk shares are down fractionally in afternoon trading after some earlier volatility, while Tableau and Qlik are showing respective losses of roughly 3.14% and 1.86%.

Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster views the partnership between Amazon Web Services (AMZN) and Rackspace (RAX) as another sign that market offerings are consolidating. The cloud space is set to continue to consolidate toward key winners AWS, Azure and Google (GOOG), Munster tells investors in a research note. He views AWS as the key driver for Amazon shares and the rollout of SaaS products as the next major catalyst. The unit could be worth north of $100B, Munster estimates.
