Oracle Integration Cloud Certifications? - Oracle EMEA Partners

Hi,  I'm looking into Oracle Cloud Certifications (I'm from a technical background in Ebiz). I am interested in the PaaS Oracle Integration Cloud Service, and want to know if there is a Certification available around this area?  thanksMark

Hi Mark, If you are an Oracle Partner, as a first step and if not already done, I would suggest you look into this Oracle Cloud Business Builder page, in which you'll also find details regarding the Oracle Cloud Managed Service Provider (MSP) Program and the Oracle PartnerNetwork Cloud Program as it includes Cloud / Advanced Specializations. Then, you might want to look into the Global Integration Cloud Service training/certification page here. If you're based in EMEA and you have any questions or would like to discuss this further, in our Oracle EMEA Alliances & Channels division, you can contact Juergen Kress as he drives the PaaS adoption for Oracle Partners in this region. I hope this helps. Julien

Hi Julien thank you for the information and the additional links. Unfortunately I've not been able to find any details on offered certifications for Oracle Integration Cloud. Could you forward contact details for Juergen please, I've followed the link to his OPN page, but couldn't find a way to message him? Also, I noticed you offered a link to the OPN Cloud Program for advanced specializations. Are Specializations and Certifications to be read as the same thing here? thanksMark

Hi Mark, I have flagged Juergen in my post so I'd expect him to join this conversation when he'll be available. OPN Specializations are specific to Oracle Partners so they differ from what is known as 'Oracle Certifications'. Sorry as I should have mentioned it to you earlier but we have also recently launched a new Community for Oracle Partners in EMEA called 'PACT for Cloud Platform'. One of this community's purpose is to provide Oracle Partners with enablement resources, incl. Oracle Partner Enablement Coaches and Solutions Champions & key information about training and certification about Oracle Cloud Platform services. The community is owned by Claude Schlesserso feel free to request to join now (go here and click on the 'Request to join' button). Thanks,Julien

Thanks again Julien. I've requested to join the community. I'm about to gain access to an Oracle Cloud Unlimited Training Subscription, and was hoping to gain a certification in Oracle Cloud Integration PaaS, as I felt this was an important area. Hopefully I will get some advice and guidance from the community about a suitable certification path, if Integration isn't available. Mark

Great, thanks Mark.I have just reached out to Claude so he looks into your request to join the PACT for Cloud Platform community and guide you through asap.Julien

Mark,the Oracle Integration Cloud certifications are in preparation, I do expect that University will announce 2 exams:- a certification for Oracle Cloud Application Integration Implementation specialist to cover Integration Cloud, SOA cloud, API platform cloud, Process cloud & IoT- a certification for Oracle Cloud Data Integration implementation specialist covering Data Integrator cloud and Golden Gate Cloud. I have no indication when these exams will be announced. Currently the available certification exams are the "on-premise" versions of Oracle Data Integrator, Golden Gate,  SOA, BPM. Oracle University has just released a Cloud Learning subscription for Integration Cloud as part of Oracle Cloud PaaS Learning Subscriptions. If you have access to and unlimited subscription, I advise you to use it prepare for the to-be-announced exams. The learning subscriptions are usually created to fit the content of the exam. Don't hesitate to contact me if you need more infoRegardsClaude SchlesserPartner Enablement Manager PS: please update your profile to display your name and company, so that members of the community platform can identify you (How do I set up my profile correctly ?)

Hi Claude, thanks for coming back to me so soon. This is great news regarding OIC Certification and Learning Subscriptions. I can see a great need in this area for Implementation Partners like DXC, when working with clients on their journey into the Cloud and SaaS. I will look at this further over the coming days, and no doubt take you up on the offer to contact you further. I would like to consider other certification routes before committing and would like to understand where the most demand currently lies, for Oracle Implementation Partners and their Consultants. thanks againMark. PS: MY Profile details have been updated.

Hi Claude,  I'm looking at some additional Cloud training while I wait for more details on the Integration Certification and Exam. I've found the following training available; http://www.oracle.com/partners/secure/campaign/applications-learning-center-2438615.html  These are 'specializations' rather than certifications. Can you explain the difference?  thanks Mark

Mark,thanks for your questions. Certification is about qualifying your personal skills: it is attached to the person and is associated with your company. If you change company, you take your certification with you, a bit like a Michelin Star (btw you get a certification badge you can display, just like a Michelin star ;-). Oracle Certification is always related to a "certification exam" offered by Oracle University: if you pass, you get a title that includes the word "Certified" in it (like SOA 12c Certified Implementation Specialist, or Certified Java Developer) Specialisation is about about qualifying your company's skills and references. To get the Oracle specialisation label for a given product, the partner company must demonstrate that they have:competencies:a number of people have to pass on-line qualification tests for sales, presales, support rolesa number of certified implementation specialistsbusiness criteriaa number of transactionsa number of referencesAll details on criteria for specifc specialisations are in the Oracle Partner Network Specialisation catalog. For more explanation on the partner program, see the Oracle Partner Program Guide. To find out more about training for Integration Cloud, I recommend you check:- the online training modules on OPN Competency Center (search for Oracle Integration/Oracle Data Integrator/Oracle SOA...Note:the implementation training for Oracle Integration Cloud is not yet available)- the PTS Integration Cloud Implementation workshops- the recently announced Cloud Learning Subscriptions for Integration Cloud from Oracle University (not free, but with good discount for partners). Hoping this helpsregardsClaude

Thanks Claude, great answer and really helpful! I have been given a 12 month unlimited Learning Subscription by my company, and intend to study for an appropriate Cloud Certification, probably Oracle Integration Cloud... Oracle Integration Cloud Services Learning Subscription | Oracle University  I am from an EBS Technical background, having worked on HCM and Financial implementations in the past. Our company are looking to progress in Cloud Implementations and I'm one of the Consultants they are asking to get training/skilled/certified in Oracle Cloud. I have attended a few remote workshops to gain a better understanding in Oracle Cloud SaaS and PaaS. Having done so, I think Integration is an area where many clients will require help/assistance in i.e. integrating SaaS to On Prem, creating custom process flows, enhancing SaaS with Visual Builder etc. I am hoping there will be a lot of demand for someone with Cloud Integration Certification. If not maybe I need to re think the certification I should aim for? Any further advice on this would be greatly appreciated. ThanksMark

Mark,getting ready for cloud is definitely getting ready for the future. Installing EBS infrastructure can be painful, using SaaS will definitely improve the customer's experience. But not all IT will move to the cloud in one day, there will be plenty of services required to integrate cloud and on-premise (i.e. build hybrid clouds) but also to integrate different pieces of cloud together. That's where the PaaS offerings come into play: data integration, application integration, process cloud, app dev, SOA and many more cloud "middleware" type services will be key in coming years, and that's where partners and integrators come into the game. I would recommend the workshops on app dev, integration, but also the "Enrich SaaS with PaaS" workshop (previously called PaaS4 we run here in EMEA

We want to help our SaaS partners to make more use of the PaaS services offered by Oracle to integrate and extend the cloud applications. RegardsClaude

Hi Claude, I agree entirely with your view, that integrating SaaS with existing On Premise applications and to other SaaS applications will be a key requirement for clients. Also, and please correct me if I'm wrong, but from my limited understanding of Oracle Integration Cloud, this includes services/technologies to allow for the creation custom process flows in SaaS and to build custom applications which seamlessly integrate into SaaS (perhaps this is Enrich SaaS with PaaS)? If so, then I think clients who subscribe to the PaaS Integration Cloud alongside SaaS, will have all the tools and services they (and their Implementation Consultants i.e. Me) require to customize / extend SaaS Applications, just as they were perhaps used to with EBS On Premise? I hope my understanding is correct, as that is the reason I've chosen to a certification in Integration Cloud. I've not attempted an Oracle Certification before but will be starting the Oracle Integration Cloud learning subscription soon and I'm looking forward to it. The link below to the Integration learning subscription, shows courses, modules and learning paths;  http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/dl4_pages.getpage?page=dl4homepage&get_params=offering:37194# Is it enough generally to follow and complete the learning path to be able to sit and pass the Certification exam? Or would you suggest to cover every course and module from this learning subscription?  PS: I'm already registered on the Integration Workshop in April and I can see a course on  Thanks againMark

apologies, but another question; on the link I gave above, following the learning path there is the Certification Exam, to become a Certified Associate. That appears to be less than most of the other certifications? Would there be at some point in the future other exams to gain higher certifications in Integration Cloud? thanksMark

Marketing Cloud Integration with Sales Cloud

Hi~ I am new to the community and we just purchased the Marketing Cloud solution.  My company is an early adopter for Sales Cloud starting on Rel 5.  I am wondering if anyone has experience with integrating both solutions to form an effortless flow.   We currently are picking an Oracle Partner to guide us.  Both have strengths and weakness opposite of each other.  Our main concern is we have limited knowledge on the connections to Sales Cloud.  I have downloaded the Oracle document "Sales Cloud Integrating with Oracle Marketing Cloud" but am unable to calculate the time required. Can someone give me more information on the integration?  Easy? Complicated?  I appreciate any knowledge passed my way. Best Regards,Vicki Novosad
Hi  Vicki, I was wondering If you still have any Problem with Integration. If you have any, Please reach me on sure.raviteja#gmail.com. I can help you. Thanks,Raviteja Sure
Hi, Could you please share that document?   RegardsPrithvi

Mobile and Mobile Cloud Service training part of Summer Camps VI August 29th – September 2nd 2016 Lisbon Portugal

You are working on large Fusion Middleware & PaaS opportunities & projects? Oracle is pleased to invite you to the PaaS & Fusion Middleware Summer Camps VI by the SOA & BPM and the WebLogic & Developer Partner Communities. Goal of the trainings is to support you to deliver a successful project. Most of the trainers are a member of the Oracle product management team.Come to Lisbon to get a 5 days hands-on training in one of the following topics:PaaS & IaaSEnterprise Connectivity (SOA)Mobile and Mobile Cloud Service Java Cloud Services & WebLogic 12.2.1 Internet of Things (IoT)For details please visit our registration page here.For details about the Mobile Cloud Service training please visit the blog post here
Being selfish, as this is posted to the Oracle MCS forum, let me give you some extra information about the "Mobile and Mobile Cloud Service" training. Like every year at the summer camp, we try to deliver a non standard training (in German we would say "nicht von der Stange) for partners that aims for a specific theme (yes, lots of work on our side for this event - but its worth it). This year's theme addresses Oracle Forms and PL/SQL audience as we like to demonstrate how they could be mobile applications with almost no mobile skills at all. For this we educate you on Oracle MCS custom API design and the new Oracle MAX (Mobile Accelerator) product. You will learn how to expose Oracle Forms modules to REST, which is the entry gate to mobile by example of AuraPlayer, who offer a "no-change-required" exposure of Forms to REST. Other options like Oracle Rest Data Service (ORDS) are discussed on class (as usual many ways may lead to comparable results). From here we give you an idea of what the job-roles (or job-responsibilities) are that are involved in accessing REST services in MCS and make them available to MAX (which then is the fun part of building a mobile application browser based and declarative). The training covers the whole nine yards, meaning that we give you a quick run on related technologies that includes REST and JSON, as well as JSON schema. For the most part of what you do during your hands-on you will be guided by dialogs and wizards. The master piece of this training is you! On the very last day of the training we invite you to join a hackathon during which you take one of your own Forms modules and expose it to mobile. We provide the same infrastructure you use during the hands-on for this and stand-by to assist you.  And ... the training is free! Frank

If you are interested more on Tech area then you need to start learning Oracle PaaS components. as PaaS is the future for all Tech Consultants where they will be able to develop New Functionalities, Integrations/Interfaces, etc.Start learning Java Cloud Service, Integration Cloud service like ICS, SOA. and BI. and if you are interested to work as Functional role, then you can chose any one based on interest ERP, HCM or SCM.thanks
Hi KVR, I second what Kashif Manzoor said regarding PaaS being the future for tech consultants. I would also suggest taking a broader approach to Cloud and recognizing that with Cloud, the expertise areas have been spread across. Once you do recognize that, I would suggest picking more than just one module. When it comes to our consultants that are currently transitioning in to "Cloud" consultants, regardless of which layer, I am asking them to do the same thing- learning how to be versatile. In context to your comment about not being fond of functional, your go to would be Oracle's Cloud Platform (PaaS and IaaS), because of the requirement of more technical expertise.  With Oracle Cloud, the idea has been to standardize applications with the SaaS layer but have customizations//integrations and basically extend/enrich the functionality of SaaS with the PaaS layer and to an extent IaaS as well. With that said, there are 7 buckets in PaaS- Application Development and Deployment, Integration, Data Management, Content and Process, Security, Business Analytics and Management. My recommendation would be to either pick a bucket and get a good hold on 2-3 products in that bucket or pick 2-3 buckets and products from them. What I see is the most promising regardless of which cloud product you choose to build your skills on is the ability to put on the hat of a "Cloud Architect". In regards to trainings, I am not sure which company you are with. If you are with a partner company, the trainings and certifications are a little different as compared to in general. I can shed a lot more light on this and guide you through the trainings and certifications. Let me know if you found this useful and if you would like more information. Best,Apurva

Cloud- technical skills

Hi all,Maybe some of you who work with Cloud ERP will be able to answer my questions.I work now as a functional consultant for OeBS (not cloud)- the way forward is obviously Cloud ERP. Customers ask about cloud so my company is also trying to build those competencies so we can deliver it to customers. I decided that I want to develop my skills into technical direction (no more functional), but still within Cloud ERP. Therefore my question to you is: which technical skills are essential/useful for Cloud ERP. Since it is all based on html forms I was thinking to start some Front-end programming course (Javascript, html, css, react.js and similar). From your experience, could you advise which direction (if it comes to pure technical competencies) should a person like me go?  Thanks in advance!Piotr
Hello, First, you're posting in a wrong community, the "cloud at customer" is an offering of hybrid hardware/software appliances that permit the consumption of cloud-like services while hosted in the customers' private datacenters. (https://www.oracle.com/cloud/cloud-at-customer.html  )  Oracle's cloud ERP -dedicated communities can be found here: Cloud Applications
