Oracle has unveiled the new Oracle Fusion Application training and certification resources, an initiative offered under the broader umbrella of the Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN).

Designed from the ground-up and leveraging the latest technology advances, Oracle Fusion Applications are 100% open standards-based business applications that set a new standard for users to innovate, work and adopt technology, states the database vendor.

Looking to further prepare partners to sell, implement, develop and become specialised in Oracle Fusion Applications, Oracle has started to offer through OPN programme more than 1,000 free online implementation-focused training courses.

The company says partners have completed over 30,000 online training modules for Oracle Fusion Applications available through the OPN Knowledge Zone for Oracle Fusion Applications. In addition, partners may also take advantage of over 23 instructor-led training implementation-focused courses through Oracle University, says the company.

According to the vendor, the training sessions are essential for partners pursuing Oracle Fusion Applications Specialisations through OPN, which will allow them to differentiate their services in the market and showcase their expertise to customers.

"Oracle Fusion Applications represent a tremendous opportunity for our partner community to expand and grow their businesses with Oracle," said Joel Borellis, group vice president, Partner Enablement at Oracle.

Borellis said Oracle has engaged its partner community since the early development days of Oracle Fusion Applications and the new training and enablement resources offered through OPN will help them gain the skills and expertise they need to become specialised. "With a specialised distinction, partners can differentiate their offerings, while providing our joint customers direct access to deeply knowledgeable Oracle experts that can ease their transition to Oracle Fusion Applications," Borellis said.
