SOA Governance Training - August 26th–30th 2013 - EMEA (Lisbon)

As a part of the Oracle Fusion Middleware Summer Camps III for our Partners, we are delighted to offer a SOA Governance Hands-on training session delivered by Oracle SOA Governance Product Management.

SOA Governance Hands-on Training

The Oracle SOA Governance Session focuses on introducing you to the crucial discipline of managing your SOA/Integration projects using the Oracle Enterprise Repository (OER), based on SOA Governance principles.

Whether you are a Developer, an Architect or a Business Manager, OER has a lot to offer to help you make the most of your SOA initiatives – a Service Catalogue, Automated Publishing, Lifecycle Management, Policies and Reporting, to name a few. OER is a powerful and flexible tool that you can leverage to manage all aspects of SOA Governance – People, Processes and Tools.

What’s more – we will also talk about our popular OER Rapid Start 30-day program delivered exclusively by Oracle Partners or Oracle Consulting. OER Rapid Start is a 30-day program, delivered to many of our customers, to kick start their  SOA Governance initiative right from engaging the right stakeholders, defining lifecycles, publishing their services to tracking ROI on their SOA investments.

The session will be lab-based giving you hands-on experience on the most popular customer use cases with OER.
