Translation and UX Trends in the Enterprise: Your Reason to Attend Oracle Apps UX Events

Are you an Oracle partner who wants to know more about what's hot in user experience (UX)? Are you an Oracle applications customer with a workforce that needs to translate material quickly to be productive? Are those workers on the go? Need to keep their hands free? Well, here's just one reason why you need to be aware of the Oracle Applications UX team's outreach and communications programs run by Misha Vaughan (@mishavaughan).

At an Oracle partner event in Manchester in the  UK that the Applications UX team ran with Oracle Worldwide Alliances and Channels for applications partners, the UX team showed what's coming in enterprise applications technology. This included  a demo of Google Glass (that would fall into the "wearables" trend) with Word Lens augmented reality (or AR, that's another hot topic in UX) translation. Attendees were blown away by UXer Noel Portugal (@noelportugal) translating a warning sign from German to English live, in real time (below) just by looking. Think of the enterprise use cases prompted by this alone!

You can read more about that event on the Usable Apps blog, "Simple to Use. Simple to Build. Simple to Sell." The UX team is up on the latest in enterprise technology trends, and Oracle partners and customers can participate in shaping its user experience..

The Oracle Applications UX team is running these events for partners and customers worldwide. Stay tuned to the Voice of User Experience (VOX) blog or @usableapps on Twitter for upcoming events, and to your Oracle PartnerNetwork and other channels too.

Augmented Reality and Translation: Use Case in Enterprise?

Really love this iPhone app from Visual Quest: Word Lens. Great to see the concept of augmented reality ("a hot topic in UX") and translation coming together. Of course, I've downloaded the app and I'm trying it out already!

Mashable says it all about this app in terms of how it seems like Sci-Fi is coming to life. However, the question remains: How could such an app be used in the enterprise applications space?

Opinions welcome!
