Oracle WebCenter: Customizing the User Experience

We've talked in previous weeks about the key goals of the new release of WebCenter are to provide a Modern User Experience, unparalleled Application Integration, converging all the best of the existing portal platforms into WebCenter and deliver a Common User Experience Architecture.  We've also provided an overview of Oracle WebCenter and discussed some of the other key goals in previous weeks. This week, we'll focus on how the new release of Oracle WebCenter enables you to Customizing the User Experience.

We recently spoke with Rich Maldonado, Principal Product Manager for Enterprise 2.0 at Oracle, about this topic. One of the main reasons why organizations utilize a portal platform is to deliver a highly relevant and efficient web experience for their users.  But why is that important?  In a word, productivity!  Organizations can't afford to have employees, partners, or customers wasting cycles hunting for what's most important.  Traditional portal technologies will often use role-based and/or attribute based personalization to tailor the experience for the users.  But some organizations have found that allowing end-users to customize their own experience not only helps individual users create a more effective web experience for themselves, but that it also increases the amount of time a users spends on the site.

WebCenter offers Administrators fine-grain controls for enabling users to customize their experience.  Customization permissions can be granted at the portlet, page, or site level for individual users, groups, or role.   Some examples of customization permissions that can be granted include:

  • Move, minimize, add, or remove individual portlet
  • Create new pages
  • Change page layout
  • Change skin/theme
  • Define default language
However, customization may not always be wanted or needed for some sites, so WebCenter Administrators can easily disable user customizations. 

Be sure to keep checking back this week as we discuss more ways in which Oracle WebCenter enables you to Customizing the User Experience.
