The Oracle programs are currently on hold while we work on an exciting new programs that are focused on two cloud database environment models: 1) Traditional cloud models and 2) Database-as-a-service (DBaaS). DBaaS technologies offer unparalleled scaling possibilities, cost efficiencies and use the very latest technologies available. Our new program will focus primarily on DBaaS technologies, used widely across the tech industry including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud, Microsoft's Azure platform, Oracle Database as a Service, as well as a whole host of new Cloud DBaaS technologies. We are planning on this program launching in mid 2019. Students who wish to find substitutions to finish out their Oracle certificates should email the Program Manager.
