New Certification: Oracle Exadata Database Machine X3 Administration

Oracle Certification announces the release of the new Oracle Exadata Database Machine X3 Administration Oracle Certified Expert (OCE) certification. 

This new certification is designed for individuals who possess a strong foundation in Oracle Database 11g Database, and covers topics such as: Exadata Database Machine features and configurations, Exadata Storage Server, migrating to the Database Machine as well as maintaining, monitoring and optimizing the Database Machine after initial configuration. This certification differentiates candidates in the marketplace by providing a competitive edge through proven expertise. Up-to-date training and field experience are recommended.

Hello,

I appeared for this exam while in beta (ie. 1Z1-027). I received my result towards mid March, however, the result differs from what I am able to see yesterday/today. Why would result change on Certview?

Interestingly, the certification objectives that are listed where an answer was given wrong (on the scoresheet visible via Certview) reflects objectives that are completely unrelated to the examination. This leads me to believe there are some data validity issues.

Let me know if you'd like to see my scoresheet, and I can forward that to yourselves.

Regards,
Rakesh

Rakesh,
It is really better if you contact Oracle Certification Support about this issue, as mentioned on Twitter and Facebook. Through social media, we are not able to gather all the info we need to look in to a specific issue like this. We request that you contact our support team http://bit.ly/KMsuH3.

I want to appear for Exadata certification. But I am not able to decide which exam should I go for. My intent is to know more about exadata and implement.

1. Oracle Exadata X3 Administration | 1Z0-027
2. Exadata Database Machine Models X3-2 and X3-8 Implementation Essentials | 1Z0-485
3. Oracle Exadata 11g Essentials | 1Z0-536

Please guide me to decide.

Thanks
Mukhtar

Mukhtar,
Exam 536 is retiring in December. Exam 485 replaces it. If your focus is implementation, 485 would likely be better for you. If you focus is administration, 027 would be a better focus.
