I just got to see Harris Kravatz, an Oracle Senior Manager of the PeopleSoft User Experience, discuss some really cool user experience enhancements coming in PeopleSoft. I’m not going to steal his thunder in the run-up to his OpenWorld session, but I wanted to share some questions I passed to Harris, and my take on his answers.
Harris, who was describing some of the new user experience enhancements his team had been working on, said, “The big focus has been on modernizing the user interface -- providing a clean and simple experience, and easy navigation across the board.”
I can see in the design direction, especially in pieces like the new manager dashboard. There is clearly a push to simplify the user experience. Harris team has really taken a page from the Fusion Applications User Experience playbook and is advocating an “all-in-one-place” design strategy. Their user experience enhancements include reducing clicks, eliminating unnecessary navigation, and most importantly, enabling quick actions and decision-making.
If you want to find out more about the upcoming PeopleSoft and PeopleTools user experience enhancements, be sure to check out these sessions at OpenWorld, Oct. 2-6 in San Francisco:
