Welcome to the Gamification Blog!

#GamifyOracle

If you are here, you have probably been hearing about gamification and game mechanics, and wondering how it all fits into the enterprise space.  Although I've been leading some efforts in the Fusion Apps UX team on gamification for a while, I have left it to a couple of others to blog on it.  For example, check out the links below from Ultan Ó Broin if you haven't seen these already:

#gamifyOracle: Oracle Applications Gamification Worldwide #UX Design Jam

Oracle Applications UX Gamification Worldwide All Hands Day

Gamification, Schamification: Reality Isn't Broken. Your User Experience Is

I've been tweeting to #GamifyOracle for a while but I'll try to use this blog to put a little of my own thoughts on the matter together.  In the meantime, I spoke at the GSummit in June on the things we're working on and I'll be leading a workshop and speaking on Enterprise Gamification at the Enterprise Gamification Summit in September.  Oracle peeps, let me know if you are interested in attending, since we can get a group discount for the workshop/summit.  We're also planning to conduct some more research on gamification in the enterprise space at Oracle OpenWorld this October. 

In the meantime, let me know if there are issues you are interested in and I'll try to put some things together here.  I'd love to know who all is working on gamification in Oracle--I know some of you but I'm sure there are others!

Nice move Erika. Good to see visibility being raised! We would love to see some flow examples from the jam published, any way to do it!

Interesting set of thoughts in "Knowing your user is key--Part 1: Motivation"...
what additional cpu load might this place on a system? Take Oracle self service expenses as an example, the system is dire in many ways, the primary one is its so slow.... Calculations dont refresh quickly etc. Now I can see motivation of employees to do their expenses on time could be a great target for "Gamification", (horrible name BTW), if you could make the user interface REALLY slick and fast, at the same time as making it fun, (entering numbers and justification of expenses is a real challenge for you), without adding a CPU overhead on an already overloaded system, that would be an outstanding payback.

Cheers
