PeopleSoft 8 DBA Assessment


PeopleSoft 8 DBA Assessment

Skills Assessment

This test is intended to evaluate PeopleSoft 8 Database Administrators. Since PeopleSoft can reside on many databases, such as Oracle, DB2, SQL Server and others, this test is geared towards application issues rather than questions focusing on database-specific issues.

Among the topical areas included are PeopleSoft 8 Architecture, PeopleSoft 8 Application Server, PeopleSoft 8 PeopleTools, upgrades, patches and fixes.

This test is appropriate to administer to people who have worked as a PeopleSoft DBA for at least one year.

Tests are also available for Oracle 9i DBA and Db2 5.x DBA.
