The Oracle Applications User Experience Customer Engagement team has had a busy few months! We have been on the road starting with HCM World in Chicago in the first week of April. Following that we were in Las Vegas hosting usability feedback sessions at COLLABORATE 2016. After a bit of breather, we were back in Las Vegas at the Modern Customer Experience co-located conferences, at the end of the month. We ran more than 100 individual feedback sessions across the three conferences. Each one of our sessions was packed and we even had a waitlist! Our customers and partners participated enthusiastically and spread the good word among their colleagues. Session participants got a sneak preview of upcoming Oracle Cloud application releases and were excited about what they saw. We received great insights and comprehensive feedback about their user experience while using our applications.
All our onsite lab participants were kind enough to give up an an hour (or more!) of their time to spend with our usability engineers. We know that conferences have packed schedules and keeps participants busy! Everyone wants to attend sessions, network with colleagues and industry members, and learn more at the demo booths. Our customers and partners did a great job of balancing their conference commitments and participating in our usability feedback sessions. We are thankful for their commitment.
Apart from testing Oracle Cloud applications, The AppsLab (@theappslab) was also present at each of the conferences! As usual they added the "cool" quotient to our team by hosting focus groups on Bots, obtaining feedback on what conference attendees thought of Virtual Reality, showcasing emerging technologies including wearables, and wowing students from the University of Nevada – Las Vegas with the future of work. You can read all about their adventures here.
It is almost the start of the summer but we are not slowing down yet! We are busy preparing for OHUG 2016 and planning our next few conferences coming up this year. If you have not participated in a feedback session with us yet, this is your opportunity! Follow us on our social media channels including Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. We post new opportunities to get involved with our team.
We look forward to seeing you at our next event.
