Oracle Learning Subscriptions

When the only constant thing in the world of technology is change, Partner consultants are faced with a huge challenge: Rapid technological development. They are expected to continuously improve their knowledge, skills and expertise in order to stay technologically up-to-date. However, what is state-of-the-art today can be obsolete tomorrow.

How can your Partners be certain that their consultants always have the necessary know-how to keep up? Traditional training methods are mostly time-consuming and cannot be easily integrated into their billable projects.

Oracle software is also rapidly and constantly evolving.

Oracle University understands the dilemma all too well and has developed a digital solution that trains Partner consultants in a swift and uncomplicated manner about updates and new features in our products.
Designed exclusively for Oracle PartnerNetwork members to keep up-to-date on Oracle technologies, the Partner Learning Subscription provides your Partners with 12 months of unlimited access to:

  • OPN Boot Camp training courses in a Training On Demand format with labs
  • Oracle Cloud Platform as a Service (PaaS) training videos and demos to build technical expertise in the fastest-growing segment of the Cloud market
  • Recorded event sessions from major events including Oracle OpenWorld and Oracle Partner Summits
  • New product release and new features training videos to keep their skills current
  • One free exam voucher that can be used for Implementation Specialist exams

The content is all digital so that your Partner consultants can learn anytime, anywhere, i.e. between billable projects and either at work or at home. For a limited time, they can save 50% on the Oracle Partner Learning Subscription and receive a free certification exam voucher.

Let you Partners know about this Partner Learning Subscription and invite them to preview the available training at: education.oracle.com/partnerlearning

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.
