ATG Live Webcast March 22: Network, WAN, and PC Performance Tuning (Part 3 of 3)

Some E-Business Suite customers have end-users who connect over a wide-area network (WAN) from remote locations to a central data center.  These remote locations may have very low bandwidth connections.  It is possible to optimise and tune the E-Business Suite to work well even with very narrow pipes. 

Andy Tremayne, co-author of Oracle Applications Performance Tuning Handbook from Oracle Press, has worked with E-Business Suite worldwide on these types of EBS tuning projects.  Andy is presenting the next installment of our ATG Live Webcast series on Mar. 22, 2012.

Please join Andy Tremayne, Senior Architect, Applications Performance, as he discusses network performance for E-Business Suite. Andy will cover tuning the client and tuning the network. He will share real-life examples of network performance, and he will show you tools and techniques that you can use to estimate or simulate performance on your own network.

Demonstrations and hands-on practice reinforce the fundamental concepts of configuring an Oracle E-Business Suite, as well as handling day-to-day system administrator tasks.

2. R12.x Install/Patch/Maintain Oracle E-Business Suite

This course will be applicable for customers who have implemented Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 or Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1. This course explains how to go about installing and maintaining an Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.x system. Both Standard and Express installation types are covered in detail. Maintenance topics include a detailed examination of the standard tools and utilities, and an in-depth look at patching an Oracle E-Business Suite system.

Additionally, the course covers the methods to deploy those types of customizations. The course doesn't include discussion of the Oracle Forms-based pages within the E-Business Suite.

5. R12.x Extend Oracle Applications: OA Framework Personalizations

Personalization is the ability within an E-Business Suite instance to make changes to the look and behavior of OA Framework-based pages without programming. And, personalizations are likely to survive patches and upgrades, increasing their utility. This course will systematically walk you through the myriad of personalization options, starting with simple examples and increasing in complexity from there.

6. E-Business Suite: BI Publisher 5.6.3 for Developers

Starting with the basic concepts, architecture, and underlying standards of Oracle XML Publisher, this course will lead a student through a progress of exercises building their expertise.

Performing Better: Improving Skills and Knowledge of EBS Tools and Technology

At least once a week I get the question, "How do I train my self or my people in X?" Over the my next few blog articles, I will address this very question. I will give you a roadmap to understanding the options that Oracle provides you for learning more about Oracle E-Business Suite technology.

Before digging into specifics, let's talk about training in general. Training is a loaded word. It means various things to various people. I want to define it as broadly as possible.

Many people consider training under the "event model". Training is something that you attend on a periodic basis in order to learn some new skills or knowledge. While this is common, it is flawed. It is far too narrow for my purposes.

It does not address what happens in the gaps between events. It does not address the foundation knowledge and abilities that enable deeper learning. And finally, it does not address the depth to which you expect learning to occur. When I discuss training, I want you to think of it within the totality of the timeline. It includes formal events, informal learning, foundational education, performance support, and multiple modalities.

Oracle provides a full range training products, many are free, to help you learn Oracle E-Business Suite technology. The details for Oracle E-Business Suite technology of each of these will be covered in future blog articles. What follows is a general source listing.

Formal events: Oracle University is your formal event source. Oracle University provides numerous instructor-led courses (ILTs) in Oracle E-Business Suite technology at Oracle University education centers located around the world. However, Oracle University is more than ILTs. They also provide online live virtual courses (LVCs) allowing you to participate in most ILTs from anywhere with a computer and broadband Internet access. You even have access to Oracle University's clients and servers for your lab exercises during your LVC. Oracle University has a number of self-study CD-ROM courses as well.

Performance Support: Oracle Tutor and User Productivity Kit (UPK) provide a powerful means of developing and extending performance support. Oracle Tutor provides a means of documenting business process, and including those documented process back into your Oracle E-Business Suite Online Help. UPK is a powerful simulation tool that complements Oracle Tutor, by providing detailed process simulations. There is pre-recorded UPK content for Oracle E-Business Suite tools and technologies, including coverage in iSetup, Personalizations, Applications Management Pack (AMP), and Applications Change Management Pack (ACMP).

Informal Learning: There is a significant archive of informal learning from Oracle, and most of it is free. I cannot cover all of the sources, but here are some starting points:
  • Oracle Open World: This is the premier source for all kinds of training at virtually every level of need, from awareness of upcoming releases to hands-on labs with Oracle experts from the Oracle E-Business Suite development teams. In many cases, this may be your only chance to meet face-to-face with the developers and other experts in your particular topic.
