Splunk Boot Camp

Start making better decisions with meaningful data in this exercise-intensive Splunk training course.


Splunk is one of the first platforms to help make sense of log data. Splunk is not just a tool for IT Ops. It’s a tool for developers. In fact, it’s a tool for everyone who’s interested in using the power of data. There are a lot of use cases for Splunk, but first, you need to learn what it’s capable of and how to get the most of it.

If you have concerns about security and compliance, don’t worry. You can still be compliant while making life easier with Splunk. You’ll just need to give everyone visibility on what’s happening with your applications in real-time or for analysis purposes. And yes—you can do all of this without giving people access to the servers.

This two-day boot camp is designed to empower a wide range of technology workers with the knowledge and skills needed to take full advantage of Splunk. This Splunk training course is exercise-intensive and is for individuals looking to develop a deeper understanding of the tool. Our continuous hands-on lab classroom format and real-world practice scenarios cement your new skills with Splunk’s various applications and leave you prepared to properly collect, analyze, and utilize your machine data.
