Oracle Policy Automation / Siebel : Live Classes in Toronto in February

Oracle Policy Automation / Siebel : Live Classes in Toronto in February

Oracle Policy Automation / Siebel : Live Classes in Toronto in February Update : thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to return to Toronto and deliver Oracle Policy Automation training. It was tremendous fun and I hope everyone had a good time. [16/2/18]

I wanted to tell you about the following events that I am hoping to run as in-class sessions in Toronto. Our friends at DesTech Toronto are hosting the following training events in February. I’ll be delivering them both so I would be very happy to see my Canadian colleagues and friends for these training sessions. Here are the details of the Oracle Policy Automation / Siebel : Live Classes in Toronto in February 2018:

Both of these need just a few more enrolments to confirm they will happen. I figure that a live class with a live instructor will be more effective for OPA customers and colleagues, as opposed to a virtual class. I’m happy to chat about OPA, OSVC, Siebel or anything else (ERP, AI, Bots 🙂 )

If you would like to enrol anyone on these courses, please let Patrice Brown pbrown@destech.com know urgently. I’m counting on you to spread the word!

PS : Every student will get a free copy of my Getting Started with Oracle Policy Automation [2018 Edition] with my compliments. That’s a CAD 65 gift for each attendee.

Oracle Policy Automation Training – Toronto 25 Sept. 2017

Oracle Policy Automation Training – Toronto 25 September 2017

Oracle Policy Automation TrainingTogether with our great friends at DesTech in Toronto, the OPA Hub is organizing some Oracle Policy Automation training in the Fall. The plan is to deliver the following two training courses. If they go ahead (of course we will be dependent on the numbers of students enrolling) then they will be completely official Oracle University training courses with the manuals and training environments you would expect. Added to which the location of DesTech in downtown Toronto near to many transport hubs (airports, railway stations and subways) is just perfect.

Monday : Introduction to Oracle Policy Automation 

“This Oracle Policy Automation training introduces you to the skills and tools for capturing, analyzing, publishing and maintaining business policies and regulations. Working hands-on, you’ll learn how you can efficiently use this fast and accurate policy modeling, guidance and decision automation solution.”

Tuesday to Thursday :  Oracle Policy Modeling for Policy Experts

This course provides many hands-on exercises with Oracle’s leading policy automation and modeling product. It is highly recommended for anyone working with Policy Modeling, or collaborating with a Policy Automation project team. All team members that complete the course will understand the key concepts and terminology for Policy Automation projects. The course is aimed at a non-technical audience, with a basic working knowledge of Microsoft Word being the only recommended prior knowledge.”

These two courses can be seen as “Oracle Policy Automation Essentials for Version 12”. Students will get a free copy of our book, Getting Started with Oracle Policy Automation [2017 Edition] and if anyone is interested I will happily chat about Siebel and Oracle Policy Automation as well : integration, Web Services, The Hub and so on.

If you are interested

Please get in touch with Patrice from DesTech using the details on this page. Alternatively, post a comment on this article and I will get you talking to him.
