    How to get into Cloud Computing world???

    911648
      Hi,

      I have strong PL/SQL knowledge with more than 13yrs of IT experience. I have been working on ODI related projects since 2yrs. I am trying to get into Oracle Business Intelligence (OBIEE) or Oracle Cloud Computing. Based on my research with OBIEE, working experience is must to pass the OBIEE certification. How about Oracle cloud computing. What certifications I could take up???

      I really want to keep myself up-to-date with latest technologies to compete in the market.

      Please Suggest.

          The market for PL/SQL developers is strong and not likely to go away any time soon. With 13 years of PL/SQL experience, if you do not currently hold the Advanced PL/SQL developer certification, that would be where I'd suggest you go first. Playing to your strengths is seldom a losing strategy.

          That said, I understand wanting to expand your skillset. My main strengths are in DBA and development work. The only one of Oracle's BI tools I've worked with much is BI Publisher. Looking at the BI certs, the most general I see is: *1Z0-591: Oracle Business Intelligence Foundation Suite 11g Essentials* which gets you the certification: Oracle Business Intelligence Foundation Suite 11g Certified Implementation Specialist

          The specialist certifications tend to be directed towards Oracle partners and are generally cover the information at a broad-but-shallow level. Looking at the topics, I think this one follows that model.

          As to the cloud in regards to Oracle. I've ignored it so far. Once 12c comes out, I may no longer be able to, but I think I'll wait until then at least then before paying it much attention.

            Watch the out for Oracle developer days (or vm downloads), oracle magazine, webcasts, blogs and papers in the oracle technology network and sources like that. Join a local oracle user group if there is one.
