Instructor Insight: Automatic Data Optimization in Oracle Database 12c

With today's constant challenges of evolving data over time, administrators need to track how and whether this data has been accessed.

With Oracle 12c Automatic Data Optimization (ADO), administrators can track metrics at the segment or block level and react with a preferred automatic optimization. The administrator can choose to optionally compress if there hasn't been any access for some time and also potentially move the data to an archive area of storage.

Information Lifecycle Management Policy (ILM)

With your organization's Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) policy, the data can be separated in various ILM categories and reside in different tablespaces and datafiles. Some are highly active and provide the greatest performance access, while the older/archived data - residing in storage where it isn’t accessed as frequently - can be stored at lower cost.

Achieve SLAs and Performance Goals

With the different ADO policies, you as the administrator can achieve your SLAs and performance goals. Explore ADO policies and more by enrolling in Oracle Database 12c: New Features for Administrators. This course is available in our Training On Demand, Live Virtual Class or Classroom Training format.

By doing so, you'll make yourself a more marketable employee and candidate in the job market. 

Reasons to Become an Oracle Certified Database Administrator of Oracle Database 12c:

• The new Oracle Database 12c certifications emphasize more advanced skills that align with industry standards, resulting in an even more valuable credential for customers and partners.

• The Oracle Certified Associate (OCA) for Oracle Database 12c centers upon certification objectives that measure IT professionals' day-to-day skills, along with your ability to manage challenges.

• Oracle offers 12c upgrade paths for existing Oracle Certified Professionals (OCP) and Oracle Certified Masters (OCM).

Database 12c Training and Certification: Built with Your Input

When creating Oracle Database 12c training courses and certifications, we wanted to know which tasks are most important in a DBA's day-to-day work. Instead of assuming what those tasks might be, we decided to develop a job task analysis survey for DBAs.

The response rate from DBAs from around the world was overwhelming! The survey focused on the following key database areas:

• DBA Core Essentials

• Database Storage

• High Availability

• Scalability

• Networking

• Security

• Very Large Database Administration

• Distributed Databases

After conducting this survey, we took this specific feedback and used it to help mold the new Oracle Database 12c training and certification curriculum. The benefit to you? You now have access to Oracle Database 12c courses and certification exams that were created with your specific on-the-job tasks in mind.

Explore Oracle Database 12c Training & Certification Today

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

View available Fusion Applications implementation training by product area now to learn more. 

You can also watch a short video that provides an overview of Oracle Fusion Applications training.

Stand Out from the Crowd: Become an Oracle Solaris System Administrator

If you're like many people in the modern day workplace, you're looking for ways to grow your knowledge, challenge yourself, become a greater asset to your company, make yourself more marketable and improve your job satisfaction. Many people are looking for ways to stand out from the crowd by possessing a unique set of valuable skills that will warrant higher pay.

In the IT world, possessing Oracle Solaris System Administration skills can be that key differentiator to increase your earning potential.

Oracle Solaris System Administration Skills in High Demand

IT Managers often tell me that they have a hard time finding qualified Oracle Solaris System Administrators. These managers need people with a depth of knowledge to manage their infrastructure, but there aren’t enough highly qualified people to fill those roles. Since the most business critical operations are running on Oracle Solaris, it's important to employ people who are experts in administering those systems. Furthermore, these in demand technologists tend to be engaged in a more comprehensive part of the IT story within their businesses. And their advanced skills are rewarded with higher pay.

Oracle Solaris System Administrator Salary

Oracle Solaris System Administrators, on average, are on a substantially higher pay scale than other System Administration positions. They also tend to have a high job satisfaction rate. As the technologies available in Oracle Solaris continue to advance, their skills allow them to work on challenging projects that expand well beyond the common daily system administration tasks.

How to Become an Oracle Solaris System Administrator

Whether you're new to Solaris and want to work your way to become a senior level administrator, or you're an experienced System Administrator looking to move into Oracle Solaris, Oracle University offers courses to get you there. You can also invest in earning an Oracle Solaris System Administrator Certification to validate your skills and prove to employers you have the knowledge and skills they need.

If you're interested in exploring Oracle Solaris Training courses, the sooner you start, the more competitive you'll be in the job market.
