SPOTLIGHT ON: In-Memory Training as part of Oracle Database 12c New Features Course

Written by Dominique Jeunot, Oracle Database Curriculum Developer

Why wait?

Develop the additional skills you need and benefit from all that Oracle Database 12c has to offer.

In-Memory Database Logo

"With Oracle Database In-Memory, you decide what data goes into memory - with no limits or restraints from software. The rest of your data is stored in less-expensive Flash or on disk. Oracle Database In-Memory works seamlessly with them all,"Jeff Erickson, Oracle Product Management.

Database-In Memory Training: What Will I Learn?

Dominique Jeunot, Oracle University Curriculum Developer, elaborates on the New Oracle Database In-Memory feature:

"The Oracle Database In-Memory option is a solution for accelerated database-driven business decision-making to real-time speeds. Unlike specialized approaches that are restricted to particular workloads or applications, the unique approach of Oracle Database In-Memory leverages a new in-memory column store format to speed up analytic, data warehousing, and reporting, while also accelerating transaction processing (OLTP) workloads."

Dominique was instrumental in helping develop our recently launched Oracle Database 12c: New Features for Administrators Ed 2 course.

In this course, you'll learn about the new and enhanced features and options of Oracle Database 12c. Expert instructors will teach you how these features and options strengthen security, manageability and overall performance.

Learn To:

  • Manage the Oracle multi-tenant container database and pluggable databases. 
  • Configure Heat Map and use Automatic Data Optimization.
  • Benefit from Online Datafile Move.
  • Understand the new temporal capabilities, as well as in-Database Archiving with Row-archival.
  • Enforce security with the Unified Auditing, the new administrative privileges, Privilege memory Caching and the automatic Big Table caching features.
  • Benefit from optimizer enhancements, including Adaptive Execution Plans and SQL Plan Directives, Real-Time ADDM and Compare Period ADDM.
  • Use enhanced features of Resource Manager in multi-tenant container databases and pluggable databases.

Top 5 Live Virtual Class Myths Busted

Oracle University has been offering Live Virtual Training Classes since 2008.  The primary goal of Oracle’s Live Virtual Training is to give our students around the world more options when taking Oracle training - without the need for travel or waiting on locally scheduled courses.

Many students have shared with us that they are reluctant to take a Live Virtual Class because they feel like they won’t get access to everything they would get in a traditional course. So we thought it would be a good idea to bust the top 5 myths about Live Virtual Training right here and now.

Myth #1: Live Virtual Classes do not cover same content covered in a traditional classroom course.

Our Live Virtual Classes use the same exact content used in our traditional classroom courses.  Every lesson is fully covered and you get access to the complete course eKit.  

Myth #2: Live Virtual Classes do not include Labs.

Every class includes access to labs for hands-on practice. These are the same labs used in our traditional classroom courses.  Live Virtual Class students actually benefit because they can access labs after class hours.  Labs are available 24 hours a day for the duration of the course.

Myth #3: Live Virtual Classes are not delivered by Oracle’s top instructors.

Every Oracle University Instructor is responsible for delivering courses via Classroom Training, as well as online, via Live Virtual Classes.  

Myth #4: Every class runs the risk of technical issues that will negatively influence my classroom experience.

As with all training – even in a traditional classroom – technical issues can arise.  However, this shouldn’t prohibit you from taking a Live Virtual Class.  We have a team of Live Virtual Class producers who are available 24x7 to help you before the class starts and throughout the class. Producers respond to any issues instantly to ensure every student has a superior training experience.

Myth #5: Live Virtual Classes are not interactive.

The Virtual Environment delivery platform we use provides many tools to assure interactivity. All LVC Instructors are trained to use the interactivity features in the virtual environment.

Features include:  

  • Presentation annotations
  • Desktop sharing
  • Quizzes
  • Live chat
  • Question and answer tool
  • Whiteboard
  • Emoticons - these are icons that communicate to the instructor if a student has a question or if the student is ready to move on.
Most importantly, because instructors are not physically in the classroom, they are motivated to use these tools and make the class as interactive as a regular class.

Top 7 Reasons to Learn Java SE 7 Now


Have you updated to Java SE 7? If you haven’t, check out the top 7 reasons to do so below.

7.  More companies are now running Java SE 7.

The end of the publicly available release of Oracle JDK 6 was February 19, 2013 so more companies will be running Java SE 7. If you haven’t downloaded Java SE 7 yet, now may be the perfect time to do so.

6.  Java SE 6 and Java SE 5 updates require Oracle Support.

As of February 19, all new Java SE 6 and Java SE 5 security updates, patches and fixes are now only available through My Oracle Support; thus requiring a commercial license with Oracle.

5.  Stay current with automatic updates.

Oracle started auto-updating Windows 32-bit, Java Runtime Environment (JRE) users from JRE 6 to JRE 7 in December 2012.

4.  Java skills are in high demand.

Java skills are in high demand, so being familiar with the latest version keeps your skills current, giving you an edge in the job market.

3.  Improved features will make your life easier.

Java SE 7 is new and improved. Get a hands-on introduction to the new features (Fork/Join, NIO, diamond notation) with the Java SE 7 New Features course.

2.  Java SE 7 training is now available.

Oracle University's Java SE 7 New Features course is available in a traditional classroom environment and as a Live Virtual Class (LVC) event. It is also available in the new Training On Demand (TOD) format, giving you the flexibility to take the training  any time, from anywhere in the world.

1.  Earn valuable IT credibility with a Java SE 7 certification.

Earn well-respected credentials by becoming certified in the newest version of Java SE 7. If you're certified in Java SE 6, you can combine your Java SE 7 New Features training with your certification upgrade and actually save 20%. If you're getting certified for the first time, other Java SE 7 certification discount packages are also available. 

Now that you know the top seven reasons to learn Java SE 7, take a look at the Java SE 7 learning paths to help you get started!
