E-Business Suite 12.1: Get the Most UX Out of Your Investment


Misha Vaughan, Applications User Experience

The development team behind E-Business Suite (EBS) has been hard at work with Madhuri Kolhatkar, our Director of Applications User Experiences to enhance the usability of the product suite.

The focus of their effort is a webinar to communicate some of the hidden gems of EBS usability. It’s easy for EBS customers to lose sight of the need for a continued commitment to usability and simply focus on implementation, so Madhuri and Sara Woodhull, Principal Product Manager for EBS, put together some key best practices that you can benefit from, including:

  • Top Three Ways to Improve EBS Usability
  • Why Upgrading Improves Usability
  • Personalize Oracle E-Business Suite for Maximum Usability

This is a live webcast: Usability Best Practices for Oracle E-Business Suite

Time:             8:00 AM - 9:00 AM Pacific Standard Time

User Experience Summit: Intel & Oracle - Lift Off!

Intel and Oracle are coming together for a day-long exchange of user experience best practices. This is the first in a two-part exchange. This effort is being lead by myself and Delia Grenville, User Experience Program Manager, Corporate Platform Office, Intel.

Intel will be engaging with Oracle's Applications User Experience team to understand how they've been able build a mature, multidisciplinary UX organization. As a co-owner of the event, I asked Delia if she could put into words for me what she hopes to get out of the day.


MV: What was your motivation for contacting Oracle about running an event on user experience best practices?

DG: I was looking for organizations that had well-established best practices in user experience. Oracle is in its third generation of user experience evolution and is a mature user experience organization. We saw that Oracle had a lot to offer.

MV: What is the benefit of talking to Oracle, isn't Intel just a hardware company?


DG: Actually, at Intel we understand that developing compelling computing experiences require a host of elements including hardware and software.

Oracle as a software company has valuable user experience expertise. We are interested in how Oracle delivered user experience across platforms, and how Oracle integrates user experience across the product development lifecycle.


MV:
How did you convince Intel this was a good idea?


DG
: We have a lot of progressive thought leaders in our business groups who value and understand the importance of user experience. Our business leaders are looking to gain every user experience advantage while building Intel products. They were excited by a cross-company conversation that would allow us to exchange ideas with other thought leaders just as committed the importance of user experience. This is a unique opportunity.

Thanks very much Delia!
