Are you looking for use cases, getting started guidance, and other actionable tips for your Splunk implementations? 

If so, check out Splunk Lantern. Splunk Lantern is a new self-help adoption resource hub with a growing library of the security, observability, and IT use cases you need to be successful.

Lantern has also got a wealth of guidance in Product Learning Guides, designed to smooth your learning curve and get you up to speed, fast.

We add new content to Splunk Lantern every week, with regular updates both on the Lantern website and in our companion app, Splunk Product Guidance

Bite-sized Video Learning

Sometimes you might just want to watch a short video showing how an expert gets a job done, rather than following along with text.

We’re adding more and more video content to help you learn in the ways you prefer, and integrating it in the SPG app so the guidance you need is right there as you work. Check out these examples:

Guided Learning Paths

Going through a process like cloud migration might seem like a huge task. But splitting it into manageable chunks, with checklists and curated guidance from Splunk experts, makes it all a lot easier.

The new Splunk Cloud Platform Migration section walks you through each phase of a migration, helping you see what to do and expect at every step of the process.


We’ve also got some new paths to help you get started in our products, for example, these walkthroughs for Splunk Cloud and Splunk APM.
