Posted by denglishbi on February 9, 2010
I came across this site and wanted to share the information. It really isn’t just for Oracle DBA’s and could be used for anyone that wants to learn I believe this information was all provided on a DVD that was handed out at the Microsoft BI Conference back in 2008. NOTE: If you want to view these online you will need to install Silverlight, plus each module includes demonstrations.
This 15 modules, level 300 course provides students with the knowledge and skills to capitalize on their skills and experience as an Oracle DBA to manage a Microsoft SQL Server 2008 system. This workshop provides a quick start for the Oracle DBA to map, compare, and contrast the realm of Oracle database management to SQL Server database management.
