With the recent acquisition of BigMachines, Oracle has added a Configure, Price and Quote (CPQ) solution to your portfolio of cloud applications.
During an Oracle CPQ Cloud deployment, the immediate goal is to accelerate the implementation and adoption of your application so your business can successfully automate its entire Quote-to-Cash process.
Implementation team members, including system administrators, need the knowledge and skills to ensure a smooth and rapid implementation of the Oracle CPQ Cloud application. During set-up, it's important to optimize the configuration for your business. To do so, team members need to understand the foundation and available options so the decisions made during set-up best align with the business.
Initial deployment: enhance the as-delivered application
During the initial deployment, or possibly at some later time, you may also choose to enhance the as-delivered application to meet your unique use cases. This requires a deep understanding of the application and knowledge of how to use the Oracle BigMachines Markup Language (BML). Furthermore, you may want to integrate the Oracle CPQ Cloud applications with other applications.
To meet these objectives, training is recommended to support your Oracle CPQ Cloud deployment. Oracle University now delivers training for BigMachines. Our courses are developed in collaboration with the BigMachines product team, which assures the training content is relevant and accurate.
