I am an Oracle DBA for the past 7 yrs. Now an oppurtunity has come for me to learn EPM. (We are converting our MF legacy systems into Oracle Financials and lots of other systems also go in it). EPM is one among them. I don't have any idea where to start. I am willing to learn. Please if somebody could give me a learning path, it would be helpful.
I saw the deployment documents in the oracle library. But I need to understand the basics first. ( I am going to be the administrator only and not the developer.)
All the documentation you need to start out if available at :- http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E40248_01/nav/portal_1.htm
As a starting point why don't you have a go at installing and deploying the products you will be administrating, the standard deployment guide should help you there, you will also need to gain product knowledge if you are going being an administrator.
Normally what will I be responsible for? I went throught the standard deployment guide. After the installation and configuration what will be my normal activities in this?
Also we are implementing SOA also, should I consider that in any way?
Also how do I get product knowledge?
