Visualizations in data analytics can make or break users' understanding of machine generated data. In this course, Building Reports, Dashboards, and Alerts in Splunk, you will gain the ability to build reports, dashboards, and alerts in Splunk. First, you will learn how to create Splunk reports. Next, you will begin to develop Splunk dashboards. Finally, you will explore how to build Splunk notifications and alerts. When you're finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of Splunk visualizations needed to grow as a Splunk users or administrator.
Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Thomas Henson, and welcome to my course, Building Reports, Dashboards, and Alerts in Splunk. I'm a data engineering advocate in the data analytics community, and I believe visualizations in Splunk are one of the major reasons for the crazy growth of Splunk and the Splunk application. Splunk has come from being a tool for analyzing mostly IoT operations data to analyzing all the data in the enterprise. The deal is if you can get it into Splunk, you can start splunking that data and build powerful visualizations. In this course, we're going to cover the basics of building visualizations and alerts in the Splunk environment. Some of the major topics that we're going to cover include building reports based on Splunk search results, using visualizations and statistics to build powerful dashboards, understanding how alerts and notifications can help with IT operations, and then develop a system that can help reduce incident response times. By the end of this course, you'll know how to use reports, dashboards, and alerts in Splunk, which is a key component to helping your organization use Splunk. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with installing and configuring Splunk in basic Splunk searches. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into intermediate Splunk topics with courses on Analyzing Machine Data with Splunk, Creating Workflows Actions in Splunk, Generating Tailored Searches in Splunk. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Splunk visualizations with the Building Reports, Dashboards, and Alerts in Splunk course here, at Pluralsight.
