UK Oracle User Group

August Updates from the OAUX Team

6 August 2015

Covering wearables, a collection of posts from around the web on what's coming next in the Oracle user experience, where to find the team at OpenWorld this year and a preview of the team's plans for UKOUG this December.


We’ve seen terrific traffic across the Oracle Applications User Experience (OAUX) social media channels whenever we write about wearables and emerging technology. And we’re really interested in wearables from both a personal point of view and as a subject of our research around the evolution of the Oracle user experience. So it should come as no surprise that Jeremy Ashley, our Group Vice President, has a perspective on the Apple Watch, and has been test-driving it for the past several months. Read about his relationship with the “iWatch,” and other wearables, in “Apple Watch Impressions with Jeremy Ashley: Time for the Best User Experience in the Enterprise Cloud” on the Usable Apps blog. Don’t forget to read the first post in the series too, “A Glance at Smartwatches in the Enterprise: A Moment in Time Experience.”


On the Web

Check out what’s new in the upcoming Oracle Applications Cloud Release 10. This content includes a summary-level description of each new feature and product. You can also review expanded discussions of each new feature and product, including capability overviews, business benefits, setup considerations, usage tips, and more. The OAUX team crafted the user experience and extensibility messaging for the RCD document for release 10. From the Cloud Site, click on Resources > Release Readiness to access the Release Readiness page.

For a preview of the Oracle HCM Cloud user experience in Release 10, read “Oracle HCM Cloud Enhancements Empower Digital Workforce,” from MarketWatch. They write, "Part of Oracle Applications Cloud Release 10, the latest release of Oracle HCM Cloud, helps organizations support an increasingly global and digital workforce through a number of new and enhanced solutions including: work-life, workforce optimization, position management, performance management, and robust analytics, all powered by an engaging and modern user experience."

Oracle partner eProseed writes about using Oracle user experience design philosophies and patterns in “How we design usable Oracle applications that please users and customers.” Read this post for a great explanation of the glance, scan, commit design philosophy that we use at Oracle in designing the cloud applications user experience.
