COLLABORATE 13 - Congratulation OPN Partners

Well it was quite a week in Denver Colorado, braving below zero temperatures and snow, for the thousands attending this years COLLABORATE Oracle User Group conference. It was great to meet so many Oracle Partner Network (OPN) Specialized partners and hear what they have been doing with their OPN specializations as part of sessions, SIGs, and in their booths. The OPN team saw lots of partners displaying their OPN Specialization achievements on the booths, business cards, and attire. We look forward next to meeting you and hearing more about your OPN & customer solution and services successes at the upcoming Oracle OpenWorld 2013 event.

And congratulations to all those OPN Partners who've achieved additional OPN Specializations since Oracle OpenWorld 2012, that we were able to meet onsite and capture a photo with.

New Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c Quick Reference Posted for Specialized Partners

As we come to the end of the 2011 calendar year, thank you again to all the Partners who were able to participate at Oracle OpenWorld 2011 in San Francisco as well as in Sao Paulo Brazil. With so many announcements to digest, as well as daily business to conduct, possibly some of you may have not had the time to further dive into Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c Cloud Control.

Understanding Partners are very busy and always on the go, the team has summarized essential Enterprise Manager 12c resources into a handy downloadable quick reference guide. The Enterprise Manager 12c Quick Reference for Partners contains sources to information on Enterprise Manager 12c including: the strategy, road map, installation, upgrade, migration, best practices, documentation, free training tutorials and more. Specialized partners can locate and access the Enterprise Manager 12c Quick Reference on the Oracle Partner Network within the Enterprise Manager Knowledge Zone .

If you haven't joined the Enterprise Manager Knowledge Zone yet, signup is easy. Furthermore, by taking one of the guided learning paths for Enterprise Manager, you can become recognized as a Specialist yourself improving your own credentials
