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.

Great Example of Community How-To Doc

Always on the lookout for examples of community doc, and here's a great one: Chet Justice (@oraclenerd) just launched an eBook version (PDF actually) of John Piwowar's (@jpiwowar) very popular multi-part E-Business Suite Installation Guide. You can obtain it using the PayPal buttons here.

All in a good cause too. Creation of how-to information like this for functional or technical tasks, along with working examples about post-install steps, configurations and customizations, is what an applications community value-add is all about. Each community is different of course, an Adobe PhotoShop community might be more interested in templates. Great to see the needs of the community being met like this.

If you have other community how-to examples you'd like to share, then find the comments.
