Business Data Analysis Training Course Overview:

You Will Learn How To :

* Develop efficient PL/SQL programs to access Oracle databases 

* Create stored procedures and functions for maximum reuse and minimum code maintenance 

* Design modular applications using packages 

* Manage data retrieval for front-end applications 

* Bulk bind collections to increase the speed of data movement operations 

* Invoke native dynamic SQL to develop high-level abstract code Course Benefits The Oracle PL/SQL language—a flexible procedural extension to SQL—increases productivity, performance, scalability, portability and security. In this course, you gain the practical knowledge to write PL/SQL programs. You learn to build stored procedures, design and execute modular applications, and increase the efficiency of data movement. 

Who Should Attend Programmers and others working with PL/SQL. A working knowledge of SQL and PL/SQL at the level of Course 926, "Oracle Database 11g Comprehensive Introduction," or Course 593, "Oracle Database 10g Comprehensive Introduction," is assumed.
