Buzz building around user experience design patterns

imagePeople are talking about user experience design patterns that have been released in the last year by the Applications User Experience team. You can get to them through the Usable Apps website, or visit the Oracle Fusion Applications desktop and mobile patterns website. Here is a sampling of recent posts about the patterns and how they can help developers:

Partners get look at what’s coming in Oracle user experience

The customer outreach arm of the Oracle Applications User Experience team recently held its first demo reception. While the team has done demos before, this was different for the Oracle research and development organization. During this special event, team members were allowed to show new user experiences that are equal parts cutting-edge technology and creative innovation.

In a previous post on the Voice of User Experience, or VoX, blog, we wrote about simplicity, and how that idea is driving the Oracle applications user experience forward. The May event showed that idea in action, with demos of several special user experiences actually undergoing development right now. Only previously vetted partners were allowed to see this - as a rule, Oracle does not share much before an application becomes generally available. Read VoX to find out what the response was.

On Oracle's investment in the next-generation user experience (in this case, mobile): Intense research into mobile use helps guide design of Oracle Applications

Read about the mobile trends that the Oracle Applications User Experience team noted during a recent global expedition, which included user studies in Sweden, the United States, and Beijing.

The Oracle Applications User Experience team continues to investigate how and why enterprise workers use their mobile devices, and their findings are already influencing the next-generation user experiences that Oracle is designing.

Oracle Fusion UX Design Patterns and Tools for the Cloud Crowd by Ultan O’Broin

The Oracle Fusion Applications User Experience Design Patterns and Guidelines are out-of-the-box, developer productivity enablers. As ready-made, yet flexible, usability solutions, the patterns are easily applied when building Fusion applications and UI integrations in the cloud with the Oracle toolkit.

Design patterns as reusable solutions to common problems when designing are all around us. Keen to tell this story in new ways, I was inspired by an Engine Yard “Cloud Out Loud | Ruby“ podcast mention of knitting patterns on GitHub.

I assigned my partner a proof of concept project for one such knitting pattern in the cloud. The pattern was quickly applied, and reflecting pattern ideas of content and skin neutrality, I soon took delivery of “HCM” and “CRM”, two little knitted aliens. Concept proven!

Knitted aliens. Proving the design pattern concept.

Knitted aliens brought to life from a pattern in the cloud. I used this story at a SAMBA UX outreach workshop in Amsterdam earlier this month.

Our UX design patterns have been proven in usability labs, in offices, and on the street, with real users, real tasks, and real apps. We’ve done the thinking and testing so that builders of Fusion apps cloud solutions don’t have to. To get your hands on UX design patterns for use across the Fusion apps suite (not just HCM and CRM), go to the Usable Apps website “For Developers” section. Read the full article here.

Oracle Fusion Applications Design Patterns Now Available For Developers by Ultan O’Broin

The Oracle Fusion Applications user experience design patterns are published! These new, reusable usability solutions and best-practices, which will join the Oracle dashboard patterns and guidelines that are already available online, are used by Oracle to artfully bring to life a new standard in the user experience, or UX, of enterprise applications. Now, the Oracle applications development community can benefit from the science behind the Oracle Fusion Applications user experience, too.


These Oracle Fusion Applications UX Design Patterns, or blueprints, enable Oracle applications developers and system implementers everywhere to leverage professional usability insight when:

  • tailoring an Oracle Fusion application,
  • creating coexistence solutions that existing users will be delighted with, thus enabling graceful user transitions to Oracle Fusion Applications down the road, or
  • designing exciting, new, highly usable applications in the cloud or on-premise.

Based on the Oracle Application Development Framework (ADF) components, the Oracle Fusion Applications patterns and guidelines are proven with real users and in the Applications UX usability labs, so you can get right to work coding productivity-enhancing designs that provide an advantage for your entire business.

What’s the best way to get started? We’ve made that easy, too. The Design Filter Tool (DeFT) selects the best pattern for your user type and task. Simply adapt your selection for your own task flow and content, and you’re on your way to a really great applications user experience.

More Oracle applications design patterns and training are coming your way in the future. To provide feedback on the sets that are currently available, let me know in the comments!
