At J. Giovanetto Incorporated, my goal is to ensure that each customer I work with is better educated than when I started an engagement. Often, most other education available is in the area of interactions between components as most education is from an individual product focus, if even offered. I firmly believe in a solutions based approach to education. We have all experienced attending a class on a product and returning home to realize we are missing how the product fits into the overall solution. Much of the training I have performed for customers has been in exactly this area, connecting the products and developing the understanding of how an action in one product can be detremental to another.
As I indicated on the 'My Offerings' page, I do not directly compete with Oracle University's offerings, but I do provide complimentary services and often customize classes to the customer's environment. Most of my classes are directed to personnel that have been handed support of the Oracle StorageTek Enterprise Library Software® but have not attending any related classes. However, previously trained personnel often need a refresher to expand their view of the solution that becomes narrowed by daily tasks and to bring them up to date on new functionality added to the solution.
Oracle StorageTek® Mainframe Tape Solution Basics
This course covers the four primary software components of the solution as well as the four primary hardware components. all of which play a significant role in the overall solution. While not all components are found in every user site, it is important to have an understanding of the basics of the entire solution to prepare for the future. This course also covers some history of tape solutions as where the solutions are today sometimes has its origin many years into the past.
