Oracle WebCenter: Modern User Experience
By Kellsey Ruppel on Feb 14, 2011
A trend we've seen in the market and that the analysts are talking about is this idea of providing a "modern user experience." A modern user experience really helps to improve individual, team and enterprise productivity by providing the tools users need to do their jobs directly in the environment in which they work. This allows them to simplify their interactions with enterprise systems and enables collaboration around key business processes. A modern user experience also delivers a much richer way for users to keep track of the information they need as they move around through the portal or application. Rather than forcing users to write down or remember information from different screens, a modern user experience minimizes the page transitions and helps integrate most information into unified, dynamic "dashboards". The user is then able to keep this information in the context of the activity, action, or task that they are attempting to complete. It can deliver a highly targeted experience to end users by using past actions and activities to personalize and improve "stickiness" of the key tasks the user performs. In this way, the portal or application becomes more productive for the user the more they or others use the site. The more they keep coming back, the richer the user experience. And in the new release of WebCenter, we deliver a modern user experience.
We've focused on providing this core technology directly to our Fusion Applications teams, which enables users to collaborate with other users directly in the context of the business application rather than forcing the users to another site making them switch back and forth. And in the new release of WebCenter, we provide this modern user experience delivering highly customizable and personalized applications and portals which allow users to navigate, discover and access information and content in context and collaborate utilizing enterprise social computing services. With the modern user experience, we've really focused on transforming how users work privately & with others and within & across Enterprises.
