AGENDA
DAY 1: INTRODUCTION AND FUNDAMENTALS

Module 1: Oracle Commerce Guided Search (Endeca) Fundamentals
This module will introduce attendees to Oracle Commerce Guided Search and how it is valuable to clients in the market. A focus will be placed on the main features of the Oracle Commerce Guided Search platform and how they complement the E-Commerce and Enterprise Search markets.

Module 2: Architectural Overview
During this module attendees will learn the about Oracle Commerce 11’s Guided Search platform architecture and all of its components. Common architecture designs as well as external system integrations will be discussed to help illustrate how it can be incorporated into existing systems, at a high-level.

Module 3: Oracle Commerce Guided Search Data Model
This module explains how the Oracle Commerce Guided Search platform stores and shares data in the form of properties and dimensions and will provide exercises on the types of each and when they should be used.

Module 4: Record Design – Part 1
During this module attendees will learn the core concepts of record design within Oracle Commerce Guided Search. Differences between Endeca record and standard database design will be discussed, to identify key topics Delivery Managers require when planning a project.

Module 5: Record Design – Part 2
This module will expand upon the concepts covered earlier, identifying scenarios where perhaps data should not be stored within an Endeca index. Topics such as frequently changing data and interaction with external systems will also be discussed.

Module 6: Working with Search Features
This module will introduce all the various search features within Oracle Endeca Commerce including Did-you-mean, Auto-correction, Thesaurus, Stop Words, Stemming and Automatic Phrasing. The attendees will learn how to leverage these items to help provide valuable search functionality within the application.

Module 7: Common UI Elements and User Experience
This module will go over all the common UI elements in a standard Oracle Endeca Commerce application, how it differs from the standard web application and some well-known examples of the Oracle Endeca Commerce application in action.

DAY 2: EXPERIENCE MANAGER AND UNSTRUCTURED DATA

Module 8: Experience Manager Concepts
This module will give a high level understanding of Experience Manager, its value to the business user and how the developer will interact and work with it. Experience Manager allows you to empower your customer’s business users to maintain their website without requiring development cycles, and to react quickly to marketing opportunities.

Module 9: Experience Manager UI and Design
As part of implementing Experience Manager, attendees will learn about the design process of templates and cartridges. Use cases for page templates and cartridges will be identified, along with best practices of extending the out-of-the-box functionality.

Module 10: Merchandising Rules and Rule Manager
During this session, attendees will learn about Styles, Zones, Rule Groups, Keyword Redirects and Merchandising Rules and how they are built and configured within an Oracle Endeca Commerce application. The lab will focus on adding a number of rules to their application that will provide additional value to the end-user.

Module 11: UI Design Patterns
Based on the Common UI Elements module, attendees will learn how to base different usage cases and solution elements based on different data types.

Module 12: Unstructured Content
CAS, or the Content Acquisition System, gives the ability to pull in from number of other sources such as web crawls, file crawls and many CMSs. It also comes with the ability to extend its functionality using CADK. This module focuses on the impact of adding unstructured data into a project.

DAY 3: PROJECT PLANNING CONCEPTS & REQUIREMENTS GATHERING

Module 13: Discovery Sessions and Requirements Gathering – Part 1,br> To help ensure that your project is successful, a Discovery Session is a critical first step. This module will cover the purpose and goals of running a Discovery Session, identifying why this should be a multi-day session. We will highlight the key attendees and the best practices for ensuring you properly scope any project.

Module 14: Discovery Sessions and Requirements Gathering – Part 2
Building on the concepts learned in Part 1, attendees will look more in-depth at the process of running a discovery session, and the desired deliverables that should be generated.

Module 15: Project Scoping and Estimation
Although every project brings unique requirements, there are several common factors that can influence the scope of a project – and the risks involved. This module will focus on the different complexity drivers and the impact they may have on a project, as well as Basic, Moderate, and Complex project characteristics and general estimations.

Attendees will perform group work to analyze a sample set of project requirements, to identify the key questions, requirements, and risks associated with it.

Module 16: Project Lifecycle and Planning – Part 1
An overview of a typical Endeca Commerce project identifying the differences between iterative and waterfall methods will be covered within this module. We will also identify the main phases and milestones that a project should encompass.

DAY 4: PERFORMANCE TESTING, LOCALIZATION AND INTEGRATION

Module 17: Project Lifecycle and Planning – Part 2
Attendees will look more in-depth at a standard project lifecycle, covering each phase in detail. This module places an emphasis on key Endeca Commerce dependencies and standard project documentation. We will also focus on the different staffing roles required within a project and their utilization over the project.

A group project to analyze a sample scope of a sample Endeca Commerce project will be completed, followed by a discussion of the results and methodology from all class attendees.

Module 18: Performance Testing
This module focuses on performance testing the Endeca Commerce MDEX engine, to meet project requirements. This will highlight common approaches and best practices when trying to optimize the MDEX engine and ensure it works well under load. The lab will focus on setting up a basic performance test for the application to illustrate how it can be done and discuss more advanced techniques.

Module 19: Localization Approaches
This module will go over the best practices when dealing with multiple languages within Endeca. It will cover approaches using both a single index and multiple indexes, and focus on the advantages and disadvantages of each to provide delivery managers with the details necessary to communicate solutions with their customers.

Module 20: Integration Methods and Add-Ons
Acting as a framework, Endeca Commerce provides multiple integration methods into new or existing e-commerce solutions. This module will identify the basic methods for integration such as the new Assembler API, as well as additional documentation sources for integrating with ATG Web Commerce. Additional add-ons to the Endeca Commerce system will also be explored, with the benefits that they offer.
