Fusion User Experience Advocates : 1 Year Later

Misha Vaughan
Senior Director

By Misha Vaughan & Kathy Miedema, Applications User Experience

I've
mentioned a group that we call FXA before. Members of
this group, the Fusion User Experience Advocates, are ACE
Directors
  who have been trained on the Oracle Fusion
Applications User Experience by the Oracle Applications User Experience
team.

As
part of their training, they’ve agreed to present at Oracle user groups
around the world on a variety of topics that relate to the Fusion
Applications user experience. They have unprecedented access to demos
and presentations that only members of the Oracle Applications User
Experience team have ever given, and they are trained on how to present
that user experience to customers.

Here are a few comments from our Fusion UX
Advocates about the most recent training on the Fusion Applications user
experience that they received, which happened this week.

Floyd Teter, Innowave Technology: “Most of the world is still waiting to see this for the first time.”

Debra Lilley, Fujitsu: “It helps to dissect a presentation” to really understand what you are going to talk about.

Karen Brownfield, Rolta: “It was wonderful.”

Most
appreciated having a group learning event, so that they could bring
their own expertise to the table during the dissection and delivery of
presentations. They learned from our team as well as each other because
the training event really promoted a collaborative learning atmosphere.

Why would you want to learn more about the Fusion Applications user experience?

Oracle
Fusion Applications is Oracle’s answer to the next generation of
enterprise software. Not only has it set a new standard for the way you
work, it’s already changing the face of enterprise applications.

User
experience features in Fusion Applications are already present in
PeopleSoft, E-Business Suite, JD Edwards, and more Oracle applications.
We talk about that a lot, here and at
Usable Apps, our Web site devoted to the usability improvements in the Oracle applications user experience.

What you may
not know is that these user experience features, and the features in
Fusion, came from the same research. Extensive customer observation, an exhaustive look at the best
practices in all Oracle existing applications and our acquisitions, modern trends in
the consumer world, and a careful assessment of users ever-changing needs that
could be met with Oracle technology -- have contributed to the new user
experience features that are available today.

And
when you see them in Fusion Applications, you will get an idea of what
is available in your current Oracle application, if you haven’t upgraded
lately. You might even want to think about developing a co-existence
strategy with your current applications.

Why should the FXA team matter to you?

YOU
can tap into the knowledge and training of the FXA team. You have access to them
through Oracle user groups. Hearing them speak, and learning more about
the Oracle Fusion Applications user experience tools and features, is as
simple as attending one of their presentations.
