Oracle University Launches New, Localized Homepage Design in 13 Countries


In an effort to connect more closely with current and potential students worldwide, Oracle University launched 13 new, localized homepages which feature a refreshed design. This new design, along with translated navigational boxes, can now be seen in 13 countries around the world. 

These countries include: China, Taiwan, Germany, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Peru, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Austria and Japan.

Over time, you'll see that more and more sections of Oracle University's global website will be localized to match the native language in each country. We're excited about this localization project, as we hope to deliver an even better web store experience to our customers around the world.

As always, we welcome your feedback. Let us know what you think in the comments section below!

Need a Smooth Implementation? Try Oracle Fusion Applications Training

Oracle Fusion Applications Training

There’s quite a bit of discussion about when and why you should migrate business applications to the cloud or select applications that are available via the cloud. The business case for doing so is quite compelling, as you have the potential to increase business agility, save money and deliver enhanced value. 

Forrester's James Staten cautions, however, that “Apps in the cloud need to be adapted to the cloud – not the other way around.” 

In other words, don’t just migrate an application to the cloud, as performance and availability may suffer. 

Oracle Fusion Cloud Application Implementation Training

This is where Oracle’s Fusion Applications fit nicely. This is the first enterprise applications suite that supports on-premise, “private cloud” (dedicated hosted environment) and “public cloud” (shared software as a service) implementations, allowing you to choose where to deploy your applications.

When it comes time to enable your Fusion Applications in either a ‘private’ or ‘public’ cloud, Oracle's Fusion Applications Implementation Training helps to ensure a smooth and rapid implementation. This hands-on, interactive training will help you understand the foundation and configuration options to make informed decisions during your Fusion Applications setup.

Who Should be Trained on Fusion Cloud Application Implementation?

Super users and security managers are certainly candidates for Fusion Applications cloud implementation training; however, Configuration or Functional Implementers are the primary candidates for implementation training for a specific application. Ideally, configuration implementers are dedicated business users who will manage the implementation project for a specific application. These dedicated business users need to understand the business requirements associated with setting-up the application.

Implementation Consultants, who are often employed by Oracle partners that provide implementation services, are also prime candidates for training.

Which Cloud Implementation Training is Available?

Implementation training is available for the key applications across the entire Oracle Fusion Applications suite, including:

  • Customer Relationship Management
  • Financials
  • Human Capital Management
  • Procurement
  • Supply Chain Management
  • Project Portfolio Management
