Course description

This course teaches you how to use the HP Operations Orchestration (OO) software, including advanced topics. Course includes using OO Central to locate, run, monitor, and perform administrative tasks. It covers using OO Studio to author and deploy automated workflows using the source control management (SCM) system. Authoring flows with OO is also covered, including many advanced flow development techniques. This course describes how to integrate HP tools with the OO software and enhance operations with “scriptlets”. You also learn how to use web services to interoperate with any provider that exposes a Web Services Description Language (WSDL). This course shows how to configure emails for flows, use file system integration, and install, configure, and update the OO software.
The course consists of OO120 Essentials and OO350 Intermediate and Advanced, comprised of focused, task oriented lectures, guides, and a series of detailed hands on labs (version 10.0 of the software).
