Oracle E-Business 12.2 Training - Support Your Deployment

As enterprises continue to migrate and adopt Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2, we continue to see strong demand for training. Courses are available in both traditional classroom and our popular online Live Virtual Class formats.

Here are some key training opportunities you may want to consider.

Online Patching

One of the most significant new features of Oracle E-Business Suite Rel 12.2 is 'Online Patching'. This allows you to apply patches while the system is still running, which reduces the patching and maintenance downtime.

Such a significant transition does, however, require an understanding of the new patching model, the terminology, and the tools that underpin the online patching operation. The following course will help you meet this objective.

Application Administration

System administrators need to understand the concepts and functions  critical to their job role as it pertains to your applications. The following course covers implementing and managing the Oracle E-Business Suite.

Oracle Workflow

Oracle Workflow Manager allows system administrators to define and manage business processes. You can route relevant information to decision makers, automate processes, deliver electronic notifications to users in a given workflow, and monitor your processes as they are implemented.  The following course will teach you how to design, administer, and manage workflow processes.

Oracle Financials

Training for the Oracle E-Business Suite Financial Management is designed to help implementers and end users set up, use, and manage their financial applications.  The following course provides a deep dive into implementation considerations for setting up and using Oracle Subledger Accounting. You'll walk away with the knowledge to create and translate journal entries to the General Ledger.

The next course is for those who need to know how to set up and use Oracle Receivables to manage receivables processing.

Order Management

If you're looking to learn how to perform the steps to setup Oracle Inventory in support of Oracle Order Management, including how to create subinventories, units of measure and items, then you should take the following course.

Inventory Management

Effective inventory management is critical to any successful manufacturing operation. The following course will show you how to setup, define, and perform inventory transactions, while reflecting the logical flow of the processes involved in inventory management.

Use Oracle Application Express to Easily Develop or Run Applications

Did you know that Oracle Application Express is a standard component of the Oracle Database and is installed by default when you install Oracle Database 12c? Once the database is installed, you can then configure the Web Listener and provide an Application Express Environment within minutes.

What is Oracle Application Express?

Oracle Application Express is a "no-cost" option of the Oracle Database, which means you can have any number of developers creating any number of applications with any number of end-users - all without paying any additional licensing costs. Furthermore, your Oracle Database maintenance agreement also covers support for Application Express with the dedicated Oracle Support engineers.

Oracle Application Express Offers Very Low Barriers to Entry

With Oracle Application Express, you can build web and mobile applications quickly and easily. Start with Oracle Database XE, or even our free hosted development service and Application Express to develop applications with zero initial financial investment.

When ready to go to production, you can then pay a monthly subscription using a hosted solution. These hosted solutions include Oracle Database Cloud Service, or you can buy an Oracle Database license. There is no additional licensing cost associated with Application Express. 

Citizen developers have proven very capable of building their own "targeted" applications using Application Express. This allows you to develop your own solutions, rather than having to rely on your IT department. Avoid associated delays and costs of such development efforts.

The flexibility of Application Express caters to a vast range of applications, from the very simplest conversion of a spreadsheet, to a highly integrated solution, such as the Oracle Store. Therefore, even those humble, "targeted" applications developed with limited scope can readily be enhanced. These applications can then meet stringent business requirements once they are transformed into company-wide applications that are available to thousands.

Experience the Benefits of Using Oracle Application Express 

Oracle Application Express allows you to define and enhance database-centric applications using only a web browser, as no client-side software is required for developing or running applications. For the majority of applications, developers can simply use the built-in wizards and features, including Dynamic Actions to define rich, interactive web applications.

Enroll in New Oracle Application Express Workshop I & II Courses 

Check out our new Oracle Application Express Workshop courses below and see how Oracle University's extensive curriculum and hands-on tutorials prepare you to build any number of applications. These courses are designed and developed in very close cooperation with the Application Express Development Team to ensure the best quality training material. 

The above-mentioned workshops enable you to take full advantage of the extensive functionality available within Application Express. Through interacting with expert Oracle University instructors and participating in hands-on exercises, you'll learn how to readily convert any database-centric business requirements into fully featured applications that your users will love.

After completing these courses, you will be able to build higher quality applications even faster. Not only will you meet your business requirements; you'll also exceed your users' expectations.

So, what are you waiting for? Explore Oracle Application Express training courses today.
