Oracle Cloud Learning Subscriptions - Complete & End-User Editions


Oracle University's New Offering - Oracle Cloud Learning Subscriptions

Oracle Cloud promises new career opportunities for IT professionals. In many cases, existing core skill sets transfer directly to cloud technologies, especially for Java and database developers, architects and administrators.

Java and database developers, architects and administrators can leverage their existing skills and gain new knowledge to rapidly build and deploy rich applications.

Learn how to extend Oracle Cloud Software as a Service (SaaS) applications using Oracle Cloud Platform as a Service (PaaS), which is based on the industry’s #1 database and application server.

In other instances, IT professionals need to acquire new skill sets that meet the demand of emerging cloud job roles.

Technical professionals, including implementers and application administrators who work with Oracle SaaS applications, need to learn all about the application throughout its entire lifecycle - from implementing and using their applications to learning how to take advantage of new features on the latest release.

Companies considering a move to cloud computing should educate their IT professionals about the potential opportunities as soon as possible. Doing so builds staff capabilities and skills ahead of migrating to the cloud platform.

Chief information officers who want to generate more business value from IT have to be on the front line of cloud skills education to build their own competence, as well as of the competence of their IT staff.

Oracle University offers simple solutions for technical professionals to build their cloud skill set:

The move to cloud solutions opens up new opportunities for both types of IT professionals. Key technical skill sets become more critical to career success.

Oracle University’s Cloud Learning Subscriptions help you transition to the Cloud while you develop the skills to take advantage of all the Oracle Cloud has to offer.

The Impact of IT Training: Getting to the Finish Line

It has been said before and it will always ring true: many factors can contribute to the success or failure of an IT project.

A popular misconception tells us that training is a luxury ill-afforded during lean economic times; but can you really afford not to train with technologies changing at a speed resembling that of a NASCAR race?

Another question: What does it take to get ahead of the pace car?

CIOs and IT managers understand that justification for every investment is needed at every turn. IDC research tells us projects that met a majority of their business objectives provided team members with 40% more training than those comparable projects that failed (IDC, 2012).

In fact, that same research tells us in IT security specifically, well-trained teams are 10% more productive (Impact of Training on Project Success, 2011).

Still not convinced?

View the essential IMPACT OF TRAINING infographic, compliments of Oracle University, to find out more about what learning can do.

With more than 500 expert instructors worldwide and more than 2,000 courses available, Oracle University couples best-in-class technology training with digital formats to make learning convenient and efficient.

The checkered flag awaits! Go for it.

Training On Demand - Using Oracle Database Vault with Oracle Database 12c

Written by Maria Billings, Senior Principal Curriculum Developer

Do you want to advance your career, but never know beforehand when you might have time for training?

Try Oracle University’s Training On Demand or TOD curriculum. You can watch recorded classroom and hands-on sessions in smaller or larger increments as it fits into your schedule.

For Database Vault

  • Do you sometimes need to prove that you couldn't possibly have seen confidential information, although you are a highly privileged DBA?
  • Did you know that the Oracle Database 12c has a Database Vault option already installed, ready to be enabled, if your organization decides to use it?
  • What is Database Vault?

Database Vault TOD Training is composed of several components, including realms, rule sets, command rules, secure application roles and factors that can be highly customized or simply used out-of-the box.

A realm, for example, is a zone of protection for tables, roles, and packages. A realm protects the objects in it from users exercising system privileges, such as SELECT ANY TABLE. So, any such privileged user must be defined as a realm participant (or have a realm-participating role that is granted to him or her) to access the protected objects.

If you are not a realm participant or owner, you can show that a query of a realm-protected table will result in the "ORA-01031: insufficient privileges" error. In short, you can prove you couldn't have possibly seen the confidential content.

The course "Using Oracle Database Vault with Oracle Database 12c" TOD training goes into all the necessary details to show you:

  1. How to reduce the attack surface for potential security breaches through limiting privileges.
  2. How to perform security analysis and report security vulnerabilities.
  3. How to configure and maintain Database Vault elements.
  4. How to implement best practices, which begins by identifying YOUR security requirements.

You can then see samples of building and documenting security implementations, and you view or discuss sample use cases, such as the workflow of an application DBA, dual key security, dynamic auditing, and so on.

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.
