Key Learning Points

Using vendor approved courseware, participants will gain an in-depth understanding of three of the most popular data storage systems in use today. SharePoint Server 2013 which offers superior document management services, the SQL Server 2012 relational database system, and the enterprise-class Oracle 11g database platform.

Mastering the Sharepoint platform requires a proper understanding of the system basics:

  • Installing, configuring, managing and maintaining a SharePoint Server 2013.
  • Configuring and managing profiles and permissions to secure data stored in SharePoint 2013.
  • Configuring enterprise search and managing taxonomy to ensure users can find and access the information they need.
  • Create and configure web applications and site collections.
  • Design an information architecture and accompanying logical and physical architectures to build a corporate intranet that expands inline with business needs and priorities.

Once proficient in the basics of SharePoint Server 2013 students move on to the final module, learning about advanced techniques including:

  • SharePoint Server upgrade and migration.
  • Configuring and managing apps and solutions within the SharePoint Server 2013 environment.
  • Building a SharePoint Server environment capable of meeting the growth and search demands of an enterprise-class organisation.
  • Configure interoperability with other services and applications including Business Intelligence (BI), social computing, productivity and collaboration platforms.
  • Improving SharePoint Server resilience for high-availability deployments and to cope with Disaster Recovery (DR) scenarios.

The course then goes on to look at the technology that underpins SharePoint server – SQL Server 2012, including:

  • The Transact-SQL (T-SQL) language, and how to build efficient queries, stored procedures and views that return key information quickly.
  • How to combine datasets, rank results and extend tables programmatically.
  • Optimise T-SQL statements for the most efficient operation.
  • Extend reporting and data transfer capabilities using XML.

Moving on, the course will then introduce trainees to the technology behind Microsoft SQL Server 2012. By practicing deployment and configuration of the database server, students will:

  • Appreciate the correct way to install and use add-on components, instances and services.
  • Build systems for high availability environments using AlwaysOn, mirroring and replication to keep data online at all times.
  • How to protect information from loss using database backup, restore and disaster recovery (DR) techniques.
  • Securing database contents by configuring permissions, alerts, logins, roles and more.
  • Practical troubleshooting, maintenance and optimisation techniques will ensure that trainees can deliver performance and reliability improvements for real-world deployments.

The final section of the SQL Server 2012 section of the course allows students to go deeper with Microsoft SQL Server 2012 by learning about enterprise deployment scenarios, like the building of Business Intelligence (BI) solutions:

  • Advanced data management concepts like data cleansing techniques and Extract Transform Load (ETL) package development and scheduling will keep information accurate, and improve data management, transfer and synchronisation for enterprise-class system design.
  • How to automate and simplify database management by using SSIS to manage package execution, task execution and scripts.
  • How best to maintain server health by using auditing, logging and event handling to assess and troubleshoot potential problems.

To round off the course, students will cover both the fundamentals and advanced operations of Oracle 11g:

  • Using Oracle tools to administer databases and table structures.
  • Understanding the importance of Oracle architecture when designing and managing databases.
  • Managing schema objects to improve database efficiency.
  • Preventing data loss using the Recovery Manager tools.
  • Using SQL to query Oracle databases directly and return specific data.
  • Improving data relevance using filtering and sorting functions with queries and datasets.
  • Building functions to simplify and automate data queries and reports.
  • Using SET operators and sub-queries to manipulate data from multiple sources, creating fine-tuned, highly accurate reports and output.
  • Using Regular Expressions and SQL*Loader to populate database tables with information from external sources.

Advantages of this course (Database Administration)

Upon completion of the course, students will have a comprehensive understanding of three extremely popular enterprise applications. As a result they will benefit from:

  • Improved database management and querying skills that help them become more effective in their current roles.
  • All the training and resources required to prepare for the MCSA SQL Server 2012, MCSE SharePoint Professional and Oracle OCA and OCP certifications.
  • Real world skills that backup database theory.
  • Increased knowledge and experience that will help improve employment and promotion prospects.
  • A broad set of database-related skills that can be applied across multiple operating environments.

The Database Administration course is a cost-effective solution for students who want to enhance their knowledge and experience, making them a valuable member of any database administration team.
