New Oracle.com global navigation

This is a guest post by Michal Kopec, Senior User Experience Architect her at Oracle Marketing Brand and Creative.

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

Highlights

1. Updated, user-oriented and business information balanced navigational categories. Say hello to the new categories: Downloads, Education and Oracle Technology Network. Oracle Partner Network navigation received a facelift too.

2. Brand new flyout based navigation - mouse over Partners for instance - providing both a high level content overview as well as shortcut links for most popular website destinations

3. Introducing audience based - I'm a... - and - I want to... - task-based navigation. Now you can navigate based on who you are or what is you want to accomplish. Please note this is an initial step - we want to build out those based on your opinions and feedback.

4. Adjusted Oracle Technology Network horizontal navigation to match Oracle.com. Oracle Technology Network users can now benefit from OTN content being accessible from anywhere during their Oracle.com and OTN visits of course :)

5. Last but not least - we applied the same refreshed global navigation to a couple of country sites - starting with Oracle Brazil and Oracle China. More to come.

The project internal code name is Mosaic. It is an effort to provide you with unified user and brand experience during your Oracle websites visit. Every time you hear Mosaic expect great things to happen.

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

Layout looks nicely organized although it is overwhelming to pack everything on the home page. Some points to note: 1. Multi-columns are nice, but some of the text pushes out beyond the drop-down area. (see Store > Enterprise Management and Store > Middleware section sub-menu links in both IE8 and FF3.) 2. Also, the news tabs in the bottom area of the flash are too transparent and very difficult to read. * When the background image changes to JavaOne 2010 and OracleDevelop 2010, there are text backgrounds on top of text links! * The first tab also has over-lapping text. My eyes hurt... * Blurring the lower area of the background images with jumbled text behind the news tabs may help relieve the cluttered/jumbled look and feel (of these tabs). 3. Need same sense of spacing for "Oracle Technology Network" drop-down menu (upper right) as the other drop-down menu items to its left. (I don't think the one-off button-look works very well.) 4. The text/logo/icon alignments in both the header and footer areas need adjustment ... w/cross browser compatibility (ie: box model ...).
