    Dear Partner,


    After April, 1st, 2014, the previous Exadata Database Machine Models X2-2 and X2-8 OPN Specialization will no longer qualify for partner companies to be Exadata Specialized.

    With the launch of the Exadata X3 and X4 models, OPN specialists (Sales, Presales and Implementation) must recertify by passing the new Oracle Exadata Database Machine 2014 specialists assessments.

    To help partners to prepare for these tests, we are organizing the Exadata Database Machine 2014 Sales & PreSales Night School. This will provide Sales and PreSales consultants with an overview of the new features and benefits of the Exadata X3 and X4 models, together with the customer value propositions, and selling strategies.
