  3. Oracle Database 12c Administration


    Databases represent the core of an organization’s informational infrastructure. In this Oracle administration training course, you learn the fundamental knowledge and skills to configure and support Oracle 12c databases, maintain your organization’s data, and ensure the availability of your data by deploying backup, recovery, and flashback operations.


    Delegates will learn how to

    • Create, configure, and maintain Oracle 12c databases
    • Automate database administration using OEM Cloud Control 12c
    • Ensure database security by managing user privileges and roles
    • Manage storage to optimize space and performance
    • Implement Oracle partitions to manage large tables and indexes
