Getting specialised has never been more important, than now. Go here to find out how.
I am putting together the 2012 Partner training programmes for our new game-changing Exalytics and Endeca rollouts, to enable you to deliver services to your clients. But as always, places are limited, and I have to give preference to accepting specialised partners, and most specifically the specialised BI & EPM implementation consultants for these free-to-partner in-depth hands-on workshops. Join our community and get specialised to ensure you are invited to these.
Even though we have now some 1,000 “OPN Certified” specialised BI & EPM partner implementation consultants throughout Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), I am regularly told by my sales teams, customers and partners that the demand is well out-stripping supply for BI and EPM due to the incredible growth and gains in market share that Oracle is winning here.
We need to at least double this number in 2012, and we see a number of partner practices actively cross-training their people away from legacy (our competitor’s) products to OBI and Hyperion. And we (the Oracle Partner Network) provide subsidised or free-to-partner BI / EPM Bootcamps (typically 3 to 5 days hands-on workshops) to get you up-to-speed as quickly as possible. There were, for example, some 100 of these BI / EPM Partner Bootcamps in EMEA in 2011: and we have an expanding schedule coming up for 2012.
