Guided Learning Path to become an Oracle Big Data 2016 Implementation Specialist

To get access to a Guided Learning path your Partner organization needs to have active Oracle Partner Network Membership and you need to have subscribed your personal Oracle.com account badged to your company OPN-ID.
You can also call the Oracle Partner Business Center, if you need further help to setup your personal oracle.com account.

With your oracle.com account you can access the Implementation Pre Recorded Modules for Big Data 2016 here: https://competencycenter.oracle.com/opncc/full_glp.cc?group_id=31951

Please be sure to take the Sales and Presales GLPs and assessments before starting the Implementation TOD?
The Sales and Pre-Sales assessments are prerequisites for this course.  This training provides the basic foundation for Big Data.  The implementation TOD Boot Camp does not cover the Big Data basics so the sales and pre-sales GLPs and assessments should be taken first to ensure success. It counts towards the Sales and PreSales Specialist requirements for the upcoming Big Data  Specialization.  

Can I watch the TOD modules out of order?
No, we recommend you watch the modules in the following order and complete the labs in order as well to complement the modules.  

  1. Big Data Overview
  2. Hadoop Deep Dive pt 1
  3. Hadoop Deep Dive pt 2
  4. Apache Pig
  5. NoSQL 
  6. Oracle Loader for Hadoop
  7. Oracle SQL Connector for Hadoop
  8. Oracle XQuery for Hadoop
  9. Big Data SQL
  10. Big Data Security 
  11. Big Data Discovery Overview
  12. Big Data Discovery Features for Technical People

 

Is there a hands on component to this lab?
Yes, the lab uses the Big Data Lite VM  that is downloadable from the Oracle Technology Network.  The lab is certified for version 4.2.1  The Deployment Guide (attached) and the Lab Guide (attached) walk you through downloading the VM.  Each module has labs at the end.  We recommend you do the labs in the order of the Lab Guide, there are certain labs that build on each other.

To run the Big Data Lite VM, you must run it on a system with at least 5GB of memory.  This system can be a laptop, desktop or a server that you have access too.  You will also need 60GB of hard drive space to download the virtual machine.

Where do I get the exercises for the lab?
The exercise file will be sent in a separate email with a zip file attachment.

What if I can't login or play the modules?  
Make sure you are using the recommended browser and the correct single sign on mapped to your company.  In order to access the training modules you will be asked to login using your OPN (Oracle PartnerNetwork) account credentials. In case you do not have an OPN account please see the Profile badging step-by-step guide for partners on how to create the account. This process will also ensure your certifications are aligned to your company ID. All registrants must be badged and aligned to their company ID.

When do I start?
Now!  We recommend you start today by downloading and installing the VM, then go through 1 a day to ensure you meet the deadline and give yourself enough time to digest the material.   You may need to go through certain sections twice to ensure you grasp the material.
