    Become Apps Consultant from Oracle Consultant / Programmer

    Dear friends,

    This blog is dedicated to help you become an Oracle Apps Consultant.
    There are many in this world who know Oracle as a database, but do not know how to become an Oracle Apps Consultant. I will take you through this journey of becoming an Oracle Apps Consultant.

    There are thousands of websites for you to learn pl/sql, hence some basic knowledge of SQL, PL/SQL, Forms & Reports will be assumed.

    To begin with, I will teach you the basics of Oracle Applications, its foundation & security.

    When I learnt APPS, the first thing I wanted to learn :-
    1. How to logon
    2. How is my login validated
    3. After logging into Oracle Apps, what do you see there
    4. How do you access screens
    5. How do you run reports
    6. How do you build interfaces
    7. How do you configure Oracle Applications

    I will be covering such topics in this journey to help you become an Oracle Financials Consultant.

    The knowledge provided here will be just enough to get you kick started.

    Blogger Anil Passi said ... (4:31 PM) : 

    Hi Pravin

    Your email really got me motivated to initiate this blog. And I will do my best in this blog.
    Been busy painting getting my house painted this weekend, but I will get this blog kickstarted by Monday.

    Ok, my first article is going to be to explain the difference between technical and functional consultant. I will also share on here the reasons I decided to become a techie

    Following that, I will try to walk you through my journey of becoming a Technical Apps Consultant, in the process of doing so, I will share what I have learnt and how.

    Take care,
    Anil Passi


    Blogger pravin said ... (5:14 AM) : 

    hello mr. anil

    I have completed my B.E.(telecommunication)and OCA(developer sql,pl-sql)so pls guide me
    1-should i have to complete forms & Reports to start with apps

    2--what will be good for me apps technical or functional..



    Blogger Anil Passi said ... (4:23 PM) : 

    Hi Pravin,

    You are a techie material. Don't be confused. You have all the pre-requisites to become an Oracle Apps Consultant. I suggest you first take up any job giving any salary anywhere, provided it has something to do with Oracle(not necessary Apps). I know its easier said than done, but hey you are an OCP( which I am not yet). If you keep trying you will definitely find one job, unless you already have one. Once you get some experience..say six months, then embark upon a Oracle Apps Job or Oracle Apps training. Unless something unforeseen happens at my end, this blog will have many aspects of Apps training material in 3 months timeframe.
    The most important thing for you right now is to get some work experience in Oracle related field. That will be a good starting point.

    If you are looking for a job, send me your CV at anilpassi@gmail.com, I will try too with the contacts that I have back in India, but I can't give any false promises of job, can only try.


    Blogger pravin said ... (9:12 PM) :

    hi anil ,
    I am very thankful to u for giving so much information. I started learning oracle apps technical . I will be in touch with u in near future. I started reading ur "Oracle Apps Training". Pls update it regularly as it is very helpuful.



    Blogger Anil Passi said ... (6:30 AM) : 

    Hi Sri,

    Indeed I will try to update this regularly, 5 times a week.

    But you must point out where I lack clarity. Criticism is welcome, given that I am not a professional trainer.

    I am happy to amend the contents based on negative feedbacks.

    Hi Pravin, great work. Keep it going...

    I have got 6yrs of IT experience and working on .NET since last 3yrs. During my previous .NET proj implemenation i happened to work with Apps consultants for the last 10 months and got a fair understanding of Apps.

    Now, I have decided to make a switch to Oracle HRMS Apps and am confident to get hold on it soon. One of my main concern is, will my 6yrs IT experience going to be useful in my future Oracle career?

    Could pls you suggest me how good this is going to be what could be the best approach!!



    Blogger Anil Passi said ... (11:53 PM) : 

    Any work experience will help you towards becoming a better APPS Consultant[rather than remain a programmer] . You will understand business requirements better than any fresh graduate, you will be able to foresee future issues and will be able to absorb pressure which will enable you to perform under pressure.

    Hence your work experience will not go waste, at least my non-IT experience was never wasted.

    Blogger Anil Passi said ... (2:28 AM) : 

    Hi Chitra

    Oracle HRMS does have opportunities, but if you know Oracle Payroll too that will give you edge.

    Have you been trained in Oracle Payroll too?

    I suggest you keep applying for as many oracle hrms jobs, but in the meantime, read about Oracle payroll too, and that will help you with interviews

    Hi Anil,
    Currently, I am working as an OTM consultant (oracle transportation management)and having 4 years of experience in IT field. I would like to switch over to oracle apps as a technical/functional consultant. Could you please advise me what necessary steps I need to be taken for the same?



    Blogger Anil Passi said ... (12:10 AM) : 

    OTM is a good skillbase within itself. Oracle has built various BPEL based integrations between OTM and Oracle Supply Chain. Hence if you want, you should move into Oracle Supply Chain as that will specialize you in full cycle between OTM and Oracle SCM
