Oracle’s UX strategy: See where it’s heading on the VoX blog


clip_image002Want a preview of what Jeremy Ashley, Oracle Applications User Experience (OAUX) Group Vice President, will say at Oracle OpenWorld 2015 in October? Three new posts on the Oracle UX strategy have been published on the Voice of User Experience, or VoX, blog to give you just that.

Going Beyond the Notification: Transitioning With the Evolving Enterprise

In the first article of our strategy series, we talk about the transition of the enterprise -- the changing workforce, the increasing mobility -- and decipher how the user experience of the Oracle Applications Cloud is transitioning with it. Wondering when the innovation will reach your company’s Oracle applications system and affect you, or how much it's all going to cost? Look no further. This transition doesn’t have to hurt.

Big-Picture Innovation on the Path to a Better User Experience

In our second strategy post, we focus on the theme of mobility alongside the theme of simplicity and discuss where we get our inspiration. All of Oracle’s user experience projects are based on innovation, understanding the most important aspect of a task, and helping improve efficiency and productivity. If you want to know how we're innovating and what we're researching, read on. Emerging technology is only the beginning.

Consistency, Context, Convenience, Participation? Check!

Our third strategy post digs into specifics and discusses the challenges and opportunities Oracle’s R&D team is facing in order to design that mobile user experience. You know that if users don't like the system, they won't use it, so what do we need to do to maximize participation? You won’t want to miss this.

New content for partners

Ultan O'Broin, with the OAUX Communications & Outreach team, writes on the Usable Apps blog that the ERP user experience is no longer just icing on the cake. It's central to user happiness and business productivity, satisfying that ever-ravenous appetite for consumerlike apps in the enterprise. Read his post, “From Cupcakes to the Cloud: Oracle ERP User Experience Bakes In Exceedingly Better Business*,” for more.

Learn more about Simplified UI for Oracle Cloud Applications

Visit the Voice of User Experience, or VoX, blog for a new post about the strategy behind Oracle’s Human Capital Management (HCM) simplified UI. Learn what’s new from the Oracle HCM Cloud UIApplications User Experience team in Release 7, and find links to new video demos on simplified UI for self-service users and managers.

Floyd Teter, of EiS Technologies and an Oracle ACE Director, also writes about simplified UI and Oracle Fusion Applications HCM in his recent blog post, “Oracle Fusion HCM - The Kettle Is Beginning To Boil.”
There are also a few new posts about Oracle Sales Cloud, such as a post  on the Oracle Applications Blog called “Wow Sales Managers and Reps with An Unmatched User Experience.” A separate post published on VoX last month about Oracle Sales Cloud focuses on what’s new with simplified UI in Release 7.

Also on VoX, Oracle partner Anne Meyer, of MIPRO Consulting LLC, talks about seeing the direction of the Oracle user experience, including simplified UI, in “Partner Gives a Thumbs-Up to Insight on Oracle User Experience.” She says, “I’m anxious for these products to make it to the marketplace. Some may be game-changing for Oracle, and how people view Oracle products.”

Exploring new user experience concepts
Oracle invests a great deal in creating a user experience for its applications that empowers customers to be more productive and efficient. One way that investment is made is by exploring new technologies and looking for ways to use them so that the Oracle user experience continues to evolve. Much of that research takes place among the ranks of the Oracle Applications User Experience (UX) team.

Recent posts on the Usable Apps blog and on TheAppsLab blog look at what and how members of the Applications UX team are exploring new concepts. We invite you to join the conversation! Tell us about your experiences with new technology, and how you think they could be used. To read more about what we’ve found, head over to the Usable Apps blog for new posts on Voice, social network integration, and Google Glass. Then check out Jake Kuramoto’s new post about exploring new concepts on TheAppsLab blog.

Support for building your own good usability practices
Visit the Voice of User Experience, or VoX, blog for a new post from Misha Vaughan, an Oracle Applications User Experience director, to see what she writes about “Six Things You Can Do Today to Jump-Start Your User Experience for Enterprise Applications.” Her post tells you how to build in good usability practices, even on a small budget.
