Oracle’s UX strategy: See where it’s heading on the VoX blog


clip_image002Want a preview of what Jeremy Ashley, Oracle Applications User Experience (OAUX) Group Vice President, will say at Oracle OpenWorld 2015 in October? Three new posts on the Oracle UX strategy have been published on the Voice of User Experience, or VoX, blog to give you just that.

Going Beyond the Notification: Transitioning With the Evolving Enterprise

In the first article of our strategy series, we talk about the transition of the enterprise — the changing workforce, the increasing mobility — and decipher how the user experience of the Oracle Applications Cloud is transitioning with it. Wondering when the innovation will reach your company’s Oracle applications system and affect you, or how much it’s all going to cost? Look no further. This transition doesn’t have to hurt.

Big-Picture Innovation on the Path to a Better User Experience

In our second strategy post, we focus on the theme of mobility alongside the theme of simplicity and discuss where we get our inspiration. All of Oracle’s user experience projects are based on innovation, understanding the most important aspect of a task, and helping improve efficiency and productivity. If you want to know how we’re innovating and what we’re researching, read on. Emerging technology is only the beginning.

Consistency, Context, Convenience, Participation? Check!

Our third strategy post digs into specifics and discusses the challenges and opportunities Oracle’s R&D team is facing in order to design that mobile user experience. You know that if users don’t like the system, they won’t use it, so what do we need to do to maximize participation? You won’t want to miss this.
