    Thanks for this great tutorial.
    How can I get access to IBM Sterling OMS for testing/learning purpose. (either a local copy or cloud environment)
    Can we request IBM to provide us access to a could environment for testing purpose?

      We can not provide local environment. I don’t think we can get cloud environment for individual testing purpose.
