Oracle Application Server Certification Stalled

Martch 2, 2004

The planned OCP certification track for Oracle Application Server (Oracle9iAS) thread has met with lackluster market reception, according to Jim DiIanni,
Oracle’s director of certification:


What about the new certification track you announced last September: Application Server? At the time it looked like you would be adding more levels, but I haven’t seen anything else come out. What’s the status right now?

DiIanni: Up to evaluation right now. We actually haven’t had a very good uptake on that certification….I can tell you that you won’t see another level for Oracle 9i. If we do anything on that certification, it won’t be until 10g.

Why do you think that maybe there wasn’t as much interest in this track as you were expecting?

DiIanni: I quite honestly think that there was never really a need for a specific job role around Application Server Administrator because I think a lot of existing DBAs ended up inheriting that responsibility. And so if you have these existing DBAs, there really isn’t a lot of value in obtaining an OCA-level certification for Web administrator.

Sometimes, the launch of a product doesn’t necessarily create a job role, and certifications are really associated with job roles. This was one certification that was pushed very hard by the product groups as a way of putting it out there and hopefully evangelizing the product, and [certification] just doesn’t work that way.
