Meet the Applications User Experience Team at Oracle OpenWorld 2010

By Kathy Miedema, Oracle Applications User Experience

Oracle OpenWorld sessions focusing on the user experience of the Applications Unlimited product suite promise to offer a glimpse of cutting-edge innovations and next-generation expectations this fall. OpenWorld 2010 will be held in San Francisco from Sept. 19-23.

Misha Vaughan, the internal and external liaison for the Oracle Applications User Experience team in marketing Oracle's user experience, says customers who use Siebel, PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, Agile, or E-Business Suite applications will learn more about these products at the Oracle OpenWorld 2010 sessions the team will offer.

"One of the consistent questions we get is, 'What else are you doing for my product line?' They're going to see that if they come to OpenWorld this year," Vaughan said. "They're going to understand how Oracle is trying to make enhancements and take lessons learned from building Fusion Applications and actually inject that back into the Applications Unlimited product suite."

Sessions slated for OpenWorld this year:

  • Examine how Oracle designs and develops next-generation user experiences.
  • Show what's next or illustrate newly available UX-related features and functions in several products from Oracle's Applications Unlimited portfolio.
  • Offer a sneak peak at features that will set a new standard for the user experience in enterprise applications.

Jeremy Ashley, Vice President of Oracle Applications User Experience, talks about what users can expect in next-generation enterprise software.

"In sessions from the Applications User Experience team, you'll get answers to these questions: How are my end users, for whom I have to deploy applications, going to benefit from what I'm rolling out? How will the software help improve end user productivity? How will it help them make better business decisions? That's the kind of information people are going to get from a user experience session," Vaughan said.

"On the Apps Unlimited side -- particularly if you're an applications implementer, maybe you're an IT director, or you're a Project Manager for an installation or rollout such as E-Business Suite financials -- you're going to understand what the user experience business value that's being added to your investment in the Oracle product suite," she added.

What Else is Coming from the UX Team?

The UX team will be running two demo pods at OpenWorld this year, one on eye-tracking and one on mobile user experiences. Come see for yourself what eye-tracking looks like in real time on an Oracle application, and check out what Oracle is thinking about designing for the mobile workforce.

Also, as usual, the Oracle onsite usability labs will be running user feedback sessions. Those user feedback sessions cover everything from Oracle's Applications Unlimited products to the next-generation products.
