Advice for a beginner studying E-Business Suite
I am starting to study Oracle E-Business Suite, but I need to know what part
I should read first, Oracle Financials or Oracle Manufacturing Chain Management, since those two
are the main topics I would like to focus on. I do not have any experience with the financial
business part of a company, or rather I was never involved with it. But in the purchasing area, I
was partially involved and I more or less know how the process works. I would like your advice
since I am a newbie. Also, please suggest what Oracle courses or exams I have to pass to accomplish
Thanks very much in advance.
That is a large task that could take years to accomplish. My suggestion to you would be to
contact Oracle Education and discuss your current and future job with them so they can recommend
the proper training for you. The very basic class they offer is one on navigating the application.
If you have never logged in, this one really helps a newbie.
As far as reading the manuals to learn the application, I do not recommend that. Some of the
manuals even tell you not to do that. They are for reference and research.
The best advice I can give you is go to a training class that fits with your area of work. From
there, find a user at your company that understands Oracle, but more importantly, understands how
your company uses Oracle. Each company is different, so the trainer may not cover every aspect of
your configuration. Once you can apply what you have learned in class to how your system is
configured, then the true comprehension begin.
I hope this helps.
