See the Oracle Cloud UX roadmap in action at our lab


clip_image002The new Oracle Cloud User Experience (UX) lab is officially open for business! Located on the bottom floor of the 200 building at Oracle headquarters in Redwood Shores, Calif., it hosted its first tour during Oracle OpenWorld 2014. We can’t stop talking about it though. The Oracle Applications User Experience (OAUX) team has written about it on the Voice of User Experience, or VoX blog, and again on the AppsLab blog.

Can’t come to HQ to see the Oracle Applications user experience for yourself? Learn about the UX roadmap in a new, free eBook from the Oracle Applications User Experience team. Find the download link on the VoX blog.

Wearables: The AppsLab team has been digging into discussions on wearable technology on their blog. Wearables have been part of the OAUX team’s research and development for some time now. Head over for a post on “Google Glass, Android Wear, and Apple Watch.” Also posted in the last month: “Pseudo-Philosophical Observations on Wearables, Part 1,” and you’ll find a bit about wearables from Samsung, among other things, in this post as well: “Musings on Samsung Developer Conference 2014.”

Did you miss the Amis Oracle UX event in the Netherlands? Here are the slides of the Amis UX Event

1956743_624738347594941_642387630_o[1]TELL US YOUR MOBILE STRATEGY: Take our survey on mobile use and mobile strategy for business. Check the Voice of User Experience, or VoX, blog to see how you can share your perspective  about mobile use with Oracle’s Applications User Experience team. Please complete the survey before March 28.

USER EXPERIENCE SPECIALIST ROLE: We now have a UX Guided Learning Path live on the Oracle Partner Network. Oracle has just created a new User Experience Specialist role for Oracle Cloud Partners to better enable them to sell the Oracle Applications Cloud.  It is composed of a guided learning path targeted at sales and pre-sales roles to learn about Oracle's investment in UX for cloud, and how to position the benefits.  The guided learning path and associated assessment is available online via OPN.
HARVARD TEAMS UP WITH UX DIRECT: Read about how OUAB member Harvard University uses UX Direct for their new PeopleSoft Campus Solutions  in this post on the VoX blog.  UX Direct helps partners and customers build in user experience best practices, using the same methods that the Oracle Applications User Experience team uses for Oracle software. Harvard is a member of the Oracle Usability Advisory Board (OUAB), which is also one of the Oracle Applications User Experience team’s programs.
DOING OUR HOMEWORK: Head to the Voice of User Experience, or VoX, blog for a post on how “New Oracle developers get a taste of Raspberry Pi.” By holding occasional hack days, Oracle’s own developers get a chance to play around with new, or new-to-them, technology and think about how to apply that technology to the business world and its users. Then check in at the AppsLab for a post on how some of the Oracle Applications User Experience developers applied Raspberry Pi for a project of their own in “New Robot Arm Hotness,” an example of how the innovation is always ongoing.
WEARABLE TECHNOLOGY USER EXPERIENCE: Check the Usable Apps blog for a new post about a wearables jam held recently for developers on the Oracle Applications User Experience team, where participants took their cue from Mickey Mouse, in “Learning to Build a Wearables User Experience from Mickey Mouse." Hear more of the story (and check out author Ultan O’Broin’s fuzzy ears) in “It's Not How You Wink, It's How You Work,” on the User Assistance blog.
GAME-CHANGER FOR FINANCIALS DEPARTMENT: Oracle’s Ultan O’Broin takes a look at how Oracle Social Network can improve the user experience for financial applications users in “How to Chat Up an Accountant Safely: Social Networking in the Finance Department,” on the Usable Apps blog.
