• Ability to articulate tradeoffs between traditional on-prem and cloud-based Splunk deployments
• Analyze and articulate risks, tradeoffs and debt associated with Splunk and ES configurations and component implementations.
• Successfully communicate and coordinate delivery of ES / TAs / automation solutions with other team members such as Platform and Core Application Engineering
