HEY YOU! Yes, you. You know me; I'm the most popular Splunk instructor (by far) here on Udemy and Udemy for Business. I know you're busy. You don't have time to keep up on every software tool in existence. This course is designed to be consumed over a lunch break (I can hear you now, "Heh, this guy thinks I actually get to eat lunch!)
But listen: Splunk is important. It is a powerful tool that helps businesses derive value from their data. There are lots of tools out there that also do this, but here's where Splunk is different: traditional business intelligence tools (Tableau) are really good at handling structured data, but your business generates all kinds of data, from structured to semi-structured, to unstructured. Databases are usually highly structured, with nicely laid out rows, columns, and relational tables. Tech is usually unstructured, with logs and other machine data. There's a whole spectrum of data types between these two types.
Splunk can help you derive business value from your data. Join me in this course designed especially for you, the senior business leader, as we explore the basics of Splunk and what it can do for you.
