OpenWorld 2013: What Applications User Experience Has in Store for Partners

By Misha Vaughan, Director, Applications User Experience


In a previous post on the VoX blog, we wrote about what the Applications User Experience team is doing for customers at OpenWorld 2013 this year. So now I thought I would write about what the team is doing for partners.


This year we have made a special effort to create and shape content targeted for Oracle applications partners as well as Fusion Middleware partners. This content is delivered in partnership with the Oracle Worldwide Alliances & Channels team of Jonthan Vinoskey and Tom Barrett.


As a partner at OpenWorld this year, you will hear about the focus of the Applications User Experience team on simplicity, mobility, and extensibility for the evolving Oracle user experience.


We will spell out for partners how Oracle is investing in the future of cloud applications user experiences, and we’ll provide examples of what that looks like. You can find that in this session:


Oracle Partner Network Exchange: Applications User Experiences In the Cloud: Tailoring, Trends and Strategy

Presenters: Jeremy Ashley, Vice President, Applications User Experience, Oracle; Debra Lilley, Fujitsu, Oracle Applications UX Advocate and Oracle ACE Director

Session ID: CON9817
Date: Tuesday, Sept. 24, 2013
Time: 3:45 p.m.-4:45 p.m.
Location: Marriott Marquis, Atrium Level - Club Room

This will be a lively conversation about the priorities of the Applications User Experience team, and you’ll also hear from a partner about hitting user experience issues head-on in deals, and customizing and extending.


We know roadmap sessions are always helpful, but we also like to talk tools with Oracle partners. This year, mobile tools are a hot topic. So, we will deliver a session on what Oracle is doing in the mobile applications space in a presentation that is equal parts strategy and tooling. This presentation will also dive into UX mobile design patterns – what they are, how they can help you, and where to get them.



This wireframe is based on Mobile ADF UX design patterns from the Oracle Applications User Experience team.

Session ID: CON9840
Date: Wednesday, Sept. 25, 2013
Time: 11:45 a.m. - 12:45 p.m.

This is not part of the Oracle PartnerNetwork, or OPN, track, but we think it will be interesting to the partner community, as well as the following session on cloud applications, which are primarily Oracle Fusion Applications, and tailoring with a partner success story.


Oracle Fusion Applications: Tailoring Your User Experience in the Cloud

Presenters: Killian Evers, Senior Director, Applications User Experience, Oracle; Timothy Dubois, User Experience Architect, Oracle; Ultan O'Broin, Director of User Experience, Oracle; Floyd Teter, EIS Technologies Inc., Fusion UX Advocate and Oracle ACE Director


Session ID: CON8493
Date: Wednesday, Sept. 25, 2013
Time: 11:45 a.m. - 12:45 p.m.
Location: Moscone West - 3001


Finally, if you’re an Oracle PartnerNetwork Exchange, or OPNX, attendee, I must extend an invitation to the Apps UX Expo. The Applications User Experience (Apps UX) team is co-hosting a top-secret event. You must have signed nondisclosure paperwork on file, but it will be worth the extra step – this is a unique opportunity to see what is cooking in the research and development kitchen of the user expeirence team. You will get a chance to see innovations ranging from current technologies to future user experiences, and you’ll be able to talk to the people behind the technology and creative experiences.


For more information and to register for the Apps UX Expo, check out the OPN Blog.


Until then, the Apps UX Communications & Outreach team (OAUX) is getting ready to meet you and put our best foot forward. So the VoX blog is going be a bit quiet for the next few weeks. However, our pals Ultan and Jake always have something to say. Look for new partner-oriented posts on building great-looking usable apps on our UsableApps blog as well.


And if you see me at OpenWorld, please take a minute to say hi!
