We've had a number of significant software releases lately, so let's stay on this subject of upgrades for a bit. ...LOTS of interest here. Today, I'm going to focus on training. Obviously, keeping skills updated is important. That said, it is something that's easy to neglect when you're busy. For many, product upgrades provide the perfect opportunity to refresh and augment skills.
If you're upgrading (and even if you aren't right now), you should know that Oracle Premier Support customers can receive 20% off Oracle University training when purchased in conjunction with an annual support renewal. We are thankful to our Oracle University friends for making this possible. The idea here is pretty straightforward - when you have the ongoing support and training you need, you can "drive" your product safely and in top gear while also taking advantage of all its latest and most powerful features.
Here's a document which provides more details on this offer:
20% Training Discount Datasheet. Information about available training is easy to access at education.oracle.com. You'll find a few thousand courses to choose from which span the entire Oracle stack and Oracle Cloud solutions. Oracle University offers numerous training formats ranging from classroom training to online learning. They haven't figured out how to download knowledge directly to your brain yet (a la The Matrix), but there are some pretty smart engineers running around here - give it a few years!
