    Emerging tech and the enterprise

    Wearables and IoT at the edge of enterprise use cases


    Wearables — your Apple Watches, Fitbits, and Misfits — are finally coming out to play in the world of enterprise applications. The Internet of Things (IoT) is also changing the game, so adopting a smart strategy is key. If you haven’t yet, check out this post on the Voice of User Experience (VoX) blog, “Wearables, IoT push Oracle’s emerging tech development.

    Enterprise use cases can be hard to come by for some technologies, such as voice and gesture as input, but Oracle needs to keep up with the latest developments in those fields anyway so that we’re ready when an enterprise use case comes up. Another post on VoX, “New ways of input still on the verge of the enterprise,” explains how we’re doing that.

    Interested in how we research, design, and develop for these emerging technologies? We’ve got three new emerging tech articles that describe the challenges and provide insight into how the Oracle Applications User Experience (OAUX) team gets it done. For a look at how this technology influences Oracle’s cloud user experience strategy, head to this recently updated article from Jake Kuramoto, director of the AppsLab, the OAUX Emerging Technologies team.
