Course Description

 
A Relational Database Management System (RDBMS) is a software system that allows you to create and manage a relational database. Minimum requirements for such a system are defined by both ANSI and ISO. PL/SQL is Oracleâ??s Procedural Language for SQL. It is Oracleâ??s database programming language for creating stored procedures, functions, database triggers, and object methods. PL/SQL can be used for implementing business rules, computing algorithms, manipulating data, and for stand-alone programs. Oracle 12c focuseson Oracleâ??s cloud-based offerings with a new architectureâ??Plugable Databases (PDBs)â??designed for rapid deployment and migration in a multi-tenant environment. This course is designed to teach both end-users and developers accessible but powerful SQL query and data manipulation (DML) skills, then teach critical programming and optimization techniques using advanced PL/SQL features.
