    UOOLK
      My question is quite amateurish hence apologies !!!

      I want to upgrade to ERP from BI domain and thought of undertaking EBS self learning in spare time.

      what i am stuck up with is that i can see loads of installation DIY and Guides for EBS on Windows/Linux
      1.how should one proceed further to install SCM /CRM
      2. what can we do with the current installation ( is that for the technical Apps DBA people to do the admin stuff)
      3. What is the end user interface of EBS
      4. In what steps should i study to reach A functional skill
      5.are there Guides available /OBE 's which teach functional skills

      thanks for your replies

          EBS is available for free (for personal learning purposes) from https://edelivery.oracle.com , assuming you have the necessary hardware to install it - you will need a machine with multi-core (or multiple) processors, along with at least 500G disk and at least 6-8 GB RAM (the more the better)

          The official install guide is here - http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E18727_01/doc.121/e12842/toc.htm

          A more friendly guide with instructions is here - http://www.oraclenerd.com/2009/12/ebs-install-guide-part-1.html
          1.how should one proceed further to install SCM /CRM
          See above - installing EBS install all the modules.
          2. what can we do with the current installation ( is that for the technical Apps DBA people to do the admin stuff)
          If you install Vision (a EBS install that includes data for a fictional global company called Vision Enterprises), then you can use the install to transact data.
          3. What is the end user interface of EBS
          EBS has two interfaces - HTML and Oracle Forms.
          4. In what steps should i study to reach A functional skill
          EBS is vast and acquiring skill takes many years - concentrate on what business knowledge or expertise you have, and translate that into EBS functionality.
          5.are there Guides available /OBE 's which teach functional skills
          Documentation is here - http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E18727_01/index.htm - there are no functional OBEs that I know of.
