Maximize Your Oracle Technology Investment with Quality Training and Certification from the Source

Sharpen Cloud Skills with OnDemand Lab Practice

Gretchen Bulan

Cloud adoption is a continuing process that depends on factors like employee retention, business growth, and technology changes.

For many companies, the moment your team is up to speed with current cloud technology, one or more of these factors will inevitably change, leaving you with a deficiency in expertise that costs time and money.

An investment in training is the smart solution to empower your workforce with relevant skills to maximize your technology investment.

When it comes to having access to education and development opportunities, the evidence is clear that employees desire - and even require -  training resources as a condition for employment.

Consider some research that shows how access to training can directly affect both employee satisfaction and efficiency in business operations:

  • Opportunities for career progression - according to CED Magazine7 out of 10 employees say job-related training and development opportunities directly influence their decision to stay with a company
  • Higher productivity rates -  Gartner Inc. reports that untrained users take up to 22.5 hours to achieve the same skill level that it takes a trained employee 5 hours to achieve
  • Focus on a culture of learning - Pearson VUE Certification Survey, 2016 validates that 68% of workers claim that training and development is the most important company policy

OnDemand Labs: a Hands-On Solution for Cloud Skills Retention 

Companies committed to employee development reap the benefits of having engaged employees who are skilled in the systems necessary to keep business running and growing. Hands-on experience in cloud applications takes training one step further.

Cloud training increases the probability for full adoption and retention of important job skills that fully capitalize on the potential of technology.

Oracle University provides hands-on skills practice through OnDemand Lab sessions, a feature of the comprehensive training solution, Cloud Learning Subscriptions. Within an OnDemand lab, users can practice activities and skills from subscription courses, in a controlled, simulated training environment, or sandbox.

This practice can reduce mistakes - and anxiety - associated with working in a live application without prior experience. Oracle University's OnDemand Lab sessions are designed to produce these benefits for your team:
