Oracle Hyperion Planning 11.1.2 Installation & Configuration - Oracle University

Oracle Hyperion Planning 11.1.2 Installation & Configuration
Oracle University
Course: D63790GC20
Instructor: Frank Laffey
Virtual Classroom

Six months ago I took over as team lead and systems administrator for a number of Oracle Products, primarily Hyperion, OBIEE and ODI. It is a big change and the 4 Oracle University courses I have taken have all been of some benefit.  But this course was the best so far, in part, due to the instructor Mr. Frank Laffey; he had the best class room control I have seen for a virtual classroom course in over 20 years in university, 2 years in college and numerous courses between CBT Nuggets, Train Signal and other vendor training.  Frank is one of the best presenters I have yet to encounter and to be honest,  I hope to take more courses with him in the future.

I am a systems administrator, not a developer. But with all the Hyperion products I have encountered and supported to date, it helps to have one foot on each side of the isle. This course helps to bridge that gap. It was a great mix of instruction and hands-on labs, building out a complete environment and testing along the whole process. This course gave me a number of ideas and tips for troubleshooting and improving performance in our environments at work. It is a great course and I recommend it to anyone who supports or uses these products to gather a better understanding of the environment and interactions. It is an excellent course.
