Oracle BI Repository (RPD) Metadata Development & Administration Training

Course #: OBI11-1401

This 2-Day course teaches participants the best practices for modeling data sources through the Oracle BI metadata repository (RPD).

Focused on the logical architecture backbone of Oracle BI, the activities in this course will engage each participant to understand the working architecture of the Oracle BI suite, but primarily the Oracle BI server, its metadata layer, and its system components. By the end of this course, participants will have an understanding of the Oracle BI architecture and how to build and deploy an RPD from scratch using the Oracle BI Administration Tool and Enterprise Manager.

This course follows the consistent training material framework from our BI/EPM University. Written by experts in Oracle BI and EPM products and developed to provide hands-on learning in a low-pressure, quick uptake environment, this course is consistent with the quality customers expect in a training partner.
