The word "oracle" conveys many meanings, mostly of the religious and mystic kind. To some, it is a shrine of worship. To others, it is a soothsayer's divine allegory, or a recurring motif in Hollywood films. But to the truly technically savvy, the word comes to mind first and foremost... as a proper noun: "Oracle" is the world's largest database and enterprise software vendor, founded in 1977. Since then, Oracle has made many strides in making its features adaptable to enterprise needs. Its most current offering, Oracle 11g, is positioned as a lean, mean database that can lower costs, cluster and consolidate enterprise application databases into scalable private clouds and storage partitions, as well as securely protect information.
With so many possibilities to streamline operations, many companies and industries are increasingly seeking professionals who can exploit Oracle database competencies. One way to gain the knowledge and hands-on practice for a career is to consider an online program in Oracle. Because online programs can be taken using the same medium which IT professionals work (computers), it is the optimal, flexible learning platform for students.
To foster a curriculum grounded in real-world scenarios, many of these courses may include simulations, live labs and proprietary software. Whether you simply want a basic understanding, or an advanced certification such as the Oracle 10g Administrator Certified Master (OMA), you could explore operating systems, networks, software, security, and project management — as well as Oracle's suites, features, extensions and standalone tools. Gain leading-edge techniques that employers demand, along with various IT certifications.
The beauty of Oracle courses are brevity and range of choice. Many of them can be taken individually and selected on the basis of your personal knowledge base. For example, if your specific area of interest is database objects, you may wish to enroll in an Oracle course dedicated to database objects. If you'd like to learn how to create tables and indexes within Oracle, there is also a course for that which can be completed in half a day. To get an overview of the challenges facing network administrators and to describe the Oracle products that are available for simplifying the monitoring and maintenance of the network environment, you may wish to take a course dedicated to giving an overview on networking.
