How To Get OPN “Specialized” - Business Intelligence & Hyperion
By Mike.Hallett-Oracle on Sep 21, 2011
In 2012 it is imperative that you get you and your company recognised and branded as an “Oracle BI / EPM Specialized Partner”. This will bring more business to you.
For implementation specialist consultants from Oracle partners, we have proctored (supervised) exams for OBIEE, Essbase, Hyperion and BI-Apps. These are high-stakes exams and therefore only delivered with an invigilating proctor. These exams are offered at Pearson VUE testing centres and some Oracle University training locations, which are located in many EMEA major cities: see the links below for more details.
To get certified as Specialized, check the Business and Competency Criteria for each specialization area and take the Assessment Tests:
- Business Intelligence Foundation - Business and Competency Criteria
- Oracle BI Applications for ERP & CRM - Business and Competency Criteria
- Hyperion Planning - Business and Competency Criteria
- Hyperion Financial Management - Business and Competency Criteria
- Oracle Essbase - Business and Competency Criteria
