I’ve been managing Rittman Mead’s Training services in the UK & Europe for over a year now, working closely with my colleagues in the US to ensure we continue to coherently deliver expert instructor led educational courses to the very highest standards.
One thing I’ve noticed is that while a great deal of value is gained by attending instructor led training, particularly if you’re upgrading or installing a new product to your data platform, you can find that two or three months down the line a new version is released which comes with new features and functions that weren’t previously taught.
Take OBIEE 12c for example, it first hit the shelves back in October 2015 and we are now on the 3rd release. In the last year, we’ve seen additions such as Data Visualization Desktop (see my friend Francesco’s recent blog post) and the ability to incorporate even more data sources to your OBIEE system (see my friend Matt’s new features guide!)
At Rittman Mead, we’ve been working on a service which we believe will complement our customer’s initial investment in instructor led training sessions. While we always wish to retain an open line of communication with everyone we have trained in the past, we realise that offering contemporary content that’s more attuned to end-users everyday roles is beneficial and necessary.
Our on-demand training service will offer top-up courses as well as our current catalog of training. It's designed to fit around users’ busy schedules with self paced learning to help people get the best out of their investment in new technology.
