Check out the new Oracle home page

This is a guest post from Michal Kopec, Senior User Experience Architect at Oracle Marketing Brand & Creative. He is working on a number of projects that deal with further integrating various Oracle sites. We'll work closely with Michal as these efforts relate to Oracle Mix and wanted to take the opportunity to introduce him to you by way of this post. Please share your feedback in the comments below, thanks!

We have just refreshed the Oracle.com home page to serve you better with Oracle related information and news.

Highlights

1. New, panoramic banner rotating top Oracle news. No need to try to hit the "Learn More" with your mouse anymore. Just click anywhere in the banner for more in-depth information.

2. Top Oracle news aggregated in one place (almost :). Check out the Customer Spotlight, Special Events and Innovation Showcase featured stories...

...and the news ticker -- pulling information from Oracle Newsroom and Press Releases. You can check the Blogs, Podcasts and Newsletters on the right, too.

3. Quick Links -- right under Top Downloads, Quick Links contains popular content shortcuts for your convenience.

We did some clean up of the product categories and a few other minor improvements too.

With that - please let us know what you think. We value your opinion.

PS. there is more coming in the future. But do not tell anyone :)

Look wonderful, which oracle portal (Webcenter framework, Oracle Portal, WCI, WLP) did you use to build it?

Good job, looks great, clean, catchy, simple, yet still informative

Thanks for all the comments! Just to be clear: It's ok to point out things you don't like, too (so we can improve the site further). Of course, we're happy with what we're hearing so far... ;-)

Looks Nice. Just Sad that my favorite product line "identity Managemen" does not appears in the home page anymore and even not on the FMW extension box... I need to go 2 page down to find it.

The way the "Top Downloads" and "Quick Links" sections jump around as you mouse from one to the other is distracting and makes those sections harder to "hit"... could be considered an accessibility problem. E.g. if you think that "Quick Links" is clickable (especially because of the + sign), you might end up in "Oracle Pricelists" because that's what ends up under the mouse when you hover over "Quick Links". The flyovers for "More Industries" etc. appear when the mouse is still a few pixels beneath from the text, or significantly to the right of the text -- at a point where the link text hasn't gone red/underlined. Makes it hard to mouse around the page without triggering flyovers by accident.

Wonderful new look for oracle web site

Posted by Islam on October 05, 2009 at 08:52 PM PDT #

@john.russell - thanks for your feedback John. We will take a close look at the Quick Links and Top Downloads sections. BTW. does anyone else have an option on these?

Great new design! Just a couple of points about the News Ticker. A particular News Item doesn't hold for a Mouse Hover. Also, the refresh rate is too fast at about 3 seconds to catch a new news. You literally have to wait for it to reappear to click the link after reading it. Or is it like, I am the only one too slow here??!! ;-)

It sounds like you're creating problems yourself by trying to solve this issue instead of looking at why their is a problem in the first place
