Kick off 2021 by learning Elastic solutions with free 15-minute guides

Elastic solutions solve many different business challenges from powering search bars to creating observable systems to detecting and responding to threats. And with the amount of capabilities each offers, learning how to maximize the power of our solutions for enterprise search, observability, and security is critical to realizing Elastic's full value.

But finding the time to build new skills can be challenging. We already offer many creative ways to learn Elastic, including docs, webinars, ElasticON presentations, hands-on training, and more.

And now we have something new to help you get started even faster: Quick Start guides.

Here’s what you need to know about this series of free tutorials that will have you exploring data in your own Elastic Cloud cluster in less than 15 minutes.

What's a Quick Start?

Every Quick Start guide consists of a few short videos focused on a specific topic, such as logging. Throughout the videos, we address three fundamental questions:

  1. Why each specific topic is important
  2. How to ingest data
  3. How to make sense of that data

Quick Starts are available on demand, so you can get started anytime. Plus, you can practice key concepts when you sign up for an Elastic Cloud trial.

We currently offer seven different Quick Starts, with others currently being created. Let's take a look at a few of them:

Elastic Workplace Search
