Auckland University Students data warehousing


University of Auckland Business School students learn data warehousing and knowledge management

AUCKLAND, -- Oracle New Zealand, a wholly owned subsidiary of Oracle Corp. (NASDAQ: ORCL), the world's largest enterprise software company, has, together with The University of Auckland Business School, developed the country's first practical training program in data warehouse building for the university's Bachelor of Business Information Management students.

Oracle and The University of Auckland have created a six-week hands-on laboratory programme that will see students designing and implementing secure and scaleable business information management systems using Oracle data warehouse products: Oracle Data Warehouse Builder, Oracle9i Application Server Portal and Oracle Discoverer.

The third-year lab sessions, which began last month, give students an in-depth knowledge of the latest information management technology as it is applies to the modern business environment.

"This course aims to provide students with a sound theoretical background on knowledge management in an organisation, through the use of decision support and business intelligence tools. The students will build data warehouses using Oracle technology and will learn how to design business applications using cutting edge technology," says Department of Management Science and Information Lecturer, Ami Peiris.

"Students will analyse a business case study, then build a data warehouse and set up a portal to deliver business intelligence to an organisation," she says.

Ms Peiris says the course is proving popular, with 120 students enrolling in this semester's "Business Intelligence and Decision Support Systems" programme.

"Students are excited about the opportunity to get into the labs and use this technology. They will gain invaluable experience with industry-leading technology that they can take with them when they enter the workforce," says Ms Peiris.

Oracle New Zealand's leading specialist in Oracle9i infrastructure software, Burke Kelly has been working closely with the university to develop the programme.

"The end result, for the students, is that they will come out of this course with skills that are highly sought after," says Mr Kelly. "The demand for data warehousing in New Zealand has really grown over the past year as businesses make data consolidation, security, and business intelligence a priority."
