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.

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.

Instructor Insight: Introduction to Oracle BI Applications with ODI

By Laura Garza, Principal Instructor for Oracle University

Often when teaching Oracle Business Intelligence Applications (OBIA) with Oracle Data Integrator (ODI), I get many questions concerning:

1) The different OBIA repositories

2) Selecting an OBIA offering and Functional Area

3) ODI terminology and how it relates to OBIA

The Different OBIA Repositories:

  • The Oracle BI Application Oracle Data Integrator repository contains the OBIA specific prebuilt ETL logic.
  • The Oracle BI Application Components repository contains the repository for the Configuration Manager and Functional Setup Manager. It also contains the load plan definitions, setup objects and domain mapping to name a few.

Needed! IT Security Skills

The need to safeguard data has become a hot topic lately.

Recent security breaches have companies taking extra steps to ensure their critical data is secure.

This has led to an increased demand for IT security experts.

According to a recent article on Dice.com:

“Demand for the skills necessary to secure networks and data continues to drive opportunities for security specialists. During April, job postings for security-related positions rose 20 percent year-on-year, according to business intelligence from Wanted Analytics.”

According to another study by Frost and Sullivan, “Demand for security professionals in the Americas is increasing by 12% annually, with 164,000 jobs forecast in the next year alone.” Source

Companies are  seeking security talent from the outside to address the talent gap; however, one alternative that's often overlooked is providing existing personnel with security-related training for product areas they already manage.

Training existing staff accelerates your timeline and reduces long-term costs associated with turnover and re-hiring.

Hands-on security training is available from Oracle University across the product stack. Benefit from training and best practices directly from the security experts at Oracle.

Instructor Insight: Oracle 12c High Availability New Features - Table Recovery in a GoldenGate Environment

By Randy Richeson, Senior Principal Oracle University Instructor

"Students often ask if a table can be recovered to a point in time and whether GoldenGate can capture this recovery. Oracle 12c enables you to recover one or more tables or table partitions to a specified point in time without affecting the remaining database objects.

This new RMAN functionality reduces the recovery scope and possibly the recovery time and disk space requirements when compared with Database point-in-time-recovery, tablespace point-in-time recovery, and various flashback features which were introduced prior to 12c."

Interact with Oracle Database Data Using the R Language in a Safe Environment

Written by Brian Pottle, Senior Principal Curriculum Developer, Oracle Curriculum Development Team

OracleEnterprise Essentials Training Now Available

Oracle has adopted R as a language and environment to support statisticians, data analysts and data scientists in performing statistical data analysis and advanced analytics, as well as generating sophisticated graphics.

Oracle R Enterprise (ORE) is a component of the Oracle Database Analytics Option. ORE makes the open source R statistical programming language and environment ready for the enterprise and big data.

Designed for problems involving large amounts of data - Oracle R Enterprise integrates R with Oracle Database

  • Using ORE, R users can run R commands and scripts for statistical and graphical analyses on data stored in Oracle Database or outside the database.
  • In both cases, users can leverage the power and scalability of Oracle Database to overcome the memory constraints of the base R environment.
  • R users can develop, refine and deploy R scripts that leverage parallelism in the database to automate and vastly improve performance of the analytic process.

Because it runs as an embedded component of Oracle Database, ORE can run any R package, either by function pushdown or via embedded R scripts, while the database automatically manages the spawned R engines that process the data.

Oracle R Enterprise Essentials Training will teach you how to access the power of Oracle Database for enhanced R programming and analysis for big data opportunities.

What You Will Learn

Expert Oracle University instructors will guide you through the process of adding the power of ORE to your existing R technical portfolio. As you will learn, ORE transparently leverages the massive scalability of the database for the big data analysis problems.

In this course, you learn how to interact with database data using the R language and R data using ORE functions. In addition, you will develop the knowledge and skills necessary to use Oracle Database for predictive analysis.

Finally, you'll learn how to leverage the database server machine for executing R scripts from SQL and R, both individually and in a data-parallel and task-parallel manner.
