ANNOUNCING - Oracle User Productivity Kit (UPK) 12.1 Enablement Service Pack (ESP) 1, Standard & Professional Edition!

Oracle User Productivity Kit (UPK) 12.1 Enablement Service Pack (ESP) 1 – Standard & Professional Edition!

Now Available on the Software Delivery Cloud


With the release of UPK 12.1 came new expert features, usability, and performance enhancements to position UPK as the premier product in the industry. New improvements to the tool continue with the release of Oracle User Productivity Kit 12.1 Enablement Service Pack (ESP) 1. UPK 12.1 ESP 1 introduces new features to improve the user experience for content authors, project owners, and end users. In addition to extending support for newly released applications, UPK 12.1 ESP 1 Standard & Professional Edition continues to be the premier product in the industry while remaining an easy-to-use and comprehensive platform for developing, maintaining, and, deploying content. Oracle User Productivity Kit dominates the market in rapidly creating and easily maintaining both transactional and conceptual content for enterprise applications.

Here’s what UPK 12.1.0.1 can do for your customers:

ee  See It! video – With the changing needs of our customers and their end user audience comes the need for additional output functionality. This highly anticipated MP4 output allows authors to create videos for one or more UPK Topics. Simply and easily organizations can now create a video output from a published topic. This new functionality introduces additional possibilities for embedding and sharing UPK content for our customers.

· R   Randomized Question Pools within Assessments - The UPK Player is a great tool for an organization to facilitate formal learning with the ability to create questions and assessments. Authors may now create assessments which present users with a specified number of questions, randomly selected from the questions available in the assessment. This feature extends the existing question and answer order options and helps to ensure users do not have identical assessments.

· T   Test It! Mode results, now tracked! – Using UPK to help create and manage organizations test scripts continues to be a focus for our customers with so many organizations seeing the value UPK offers. Test It? mode has proved to be an invaluable asset to various testing initiatives including user acceptance testing, application regression testing, and even UPK content review. In UPK 12.1 ESP 1 the results of each completed Test It! mode can be tracked in Knowledge Center where the data can be reported and Test Results documents are archived for each test.

· U   Usability of Print Areas Enhanced – Continuing our focus on the needs of the end users UPK 12.1 introduced the ability to control the steps image in document outputs by offering the option of selecting the Print Area. UPK 12.1 ESP 1 improved document output images by displaying the action area for each step. This small change significantly improves overall user experience for document outputs.

Additional Support – Oracle continues to innovate, develop, as well as support UPK. With each new release of UPK, support is added for additional target applications, recording environments, operating systems, databases, and web browsers allowing content authors and end users to stay current with technology trends.
