Jules of the Oracle Cloud: Wiring Developers' Use Cases to UX PaaS4SaaS Productivity

Two killer videos to watch. Together.

First up, Oracle Applications Cloud User Experience PaaS and SaaS enablement outreacher Julian "Jules" Orr (@Orr_UX) on how to select the right use case for PaaS4SaaS using the #JTBD (Jobs To Be Done) approach.

This video is part of the OTNArchBeat (@OTNArchBeat) Two Minute Tech Tip (2MTT) series.

Second, we have Oracle partner Hitachi Consulting talking about wireframing customer cloud solutions using OAUX enablement and what that means for shortening the HCM SaaS innovation cycle and increasing business.

No idea who the guy in the ETRO (@EtroOfficial) suit is. Damn hipsters.

Of course, the two videos are perfect together. Just like PaaS and SaaS.

You can read more about the Hitachi Consulting enablement on the Usable Apps blog.

Your First KiSS: Learning 2 ♥ #IoT UX

Services: that’s really what’s at the heart of the IoT (Internet of Things) device conversation and what makes the user experience (UX) design of IoT different. 

Think of your first KISS (Killer Integration Services, Simple) as the beginning of a love affair with ubiquitous connectivity of devices and data exchange through the cloud. 

I recorded this Two Minute Tech Tip (2MTT) with Mr. OTNArchBeat (@OTNArchBeat), Bob Rhubart, to explain more about where developers now need to place their affections in the cloud.



The O'Reilly ebook Experience Design addresses IoT, explains how services are at the heart of the IoT user experience, and outlines other differences too. 

Those services are made available via web APIs and developers and designers now need to approach UX by building UI services for task flows and fluid connectivity and not build hard-coded UIs. 

APIs are a form of UX design, and the future of developers implementing UX, as Jared Spool (@jmspool) would say. 


Learn to love APIs as UX design for the cloud
Oyster Card for transport in London. No card actually necessary!

This UX Mag article summarizes the basics you need to know about what’s different about UX design for IoT. The London Oyster Travel Card is a great example of the IoT UX: You don’t even need the card to travel, you can use NFC and tap your smartphone at the ticket barrier to get to the trains, for example. 

With that data is in the cloud and devices are connected, you’re good to go. Some of those “things” of course, don’t even have a UI!

Devs, it's time to heart APIs if you’re not already Oracle Cloud smitten.
