SOA, Empowerment and Continuous Improvement by Rick Beers

Train (Guided Process) Image#1) User experience and the Oracle Applications Cloud: IDC Analyst Mike Fauscette writes about “Oracle and the Cloud” in a recent post on the Seeking Alpha website, a resource for investment information. In his article, Fauscette writes: “In particular, there are new tools and a simplified experience for all the cloud apps that extends to some new mobile and analytic apps.”
#2) PeopleSoft User Experience Guidelines now available: The PeopleSoft Applications User Experience team has announced the release of the PeopleSoft User Experience (UX) Guidelines. The PeopleSoft UX Guidelines contain information about the usage of key PeopleSoft components to create highly usable, efficient, and productive experiences for Oracle customers. Read more about the guidelines and how to use them on the Usable Apps blog.
#3) UX Direct gets a new look: Check the UX Direct blog to find out what’s new with UX Direct and to see how the site that provides user experience guidance has changed.
#4) Usability for developers: Oracle ACE Ahmed Aboulnaga of Raastech writes about usability and Oracle’s investment in user experience in the most recent digital edition of Oracle Scene from the UK Oracle User Group. “Usability – Ignored by Developers and Undervalued by Managers” is geared toward a developer audience, but hits a design audience with equal force. (Be patient — this link takes a bit.)
#5) Oracle Applications User Experience team at Sangam 13:  Read about our plans and presentations at Sangam 13 in Hyderabad, India on the Voice of User Experience, or VoX, blog.
