    Wearables and “Glance, Scan, Commit"
    Abstract:

    See how wearables -- like the Apple Watch -- fit into Oracle’s user experience strategy.

    Announcement:

    FITBIT SURGE: What’s it like wearing the latest Fitbit? If anyone could wear out the Fitbit Surge, it’s Ultan O’Broin, Director of the OAUX team, who writes about his experience with the “super watch” in this blog post.

    BASIS PEAK: Jake Kuramoto of Usable Apps spent four weeks with a Basis Peak, and all he got was a crummy mark on his wrist -- well, OK, he learned some other stuff, too. Check out his post on this wearable gadget here.

    NIKE FUELBAND SE: Jake also spent three weeks with the Nike Fuelband SE. He posted what he calls “a loosely organized manifest of observtions (not quite a review)” here.

    APPLE WATCH: And finally, the moment you’ve all been waiting for: Apple released its Watch, and we’re definitely ready for it! Click here for a sneak peek at our first Apple Watch movements.

    Title:
    Event Summary: Oracle PaaS4SaaS UX Enablement with Certus Solutions
    Abstract:

    The OAUX communications and outreach team has been on the road helping partners understand this competitive potential.

    Announcement:

    Have you been thinking about Paas4Saas? We have, and one way Oracle is inspiring innovation in this area is through events and workshops. Our recent PaaS4SaaS enablement in the United Kingdom was a three-day, hands-on design and development event with Certus Solutions. The OAUX team got to walk in partner shoes, and Certus Solutions and eProseed found out how to identify PaaS4SaaS business opportunities. Click here (https://blogs.oracle.com/usableapps/entry/oracle_paas_bring_more_than) to read about the event.

    Certus’ Debra Lilley, OAUX Speaker, attended the Paas4Saas workshop as well. “I’m still not technical enough to do this but I am technical enough to understand that PaaS4SaaS is a game changer and will continue to be seeing more and more in our community,” she said. Get her take on the event at her blog (http://debrasoracle.blogspot.co.uk/2015/03/finally-my-paas4saas-workshop-blog.html).

    A Glance at Smartwatches in the Enterprise: A Moment in Time...5.0
    Announcement posted May 4, 2015 by Sarah SmartSilver Medal: 2,000+ Points, tagged Engagement Cloud, Financials, Global HR, OAUX, PPM, Procurement, SCM, UX in Customer Connect Announcements public
    Title:
    A Glance at Smartwatches in the Enterprise: A Moment in Time Experience
    Abstract:

    Check out some of our ideas about designing apps for *that* smartwatch -- and every other smartwatch, too!

    Announcement:

    The wearable technology space is currently focused on smartwatches. Maybe you’re planning to get an Apple Watch, or maybe you already have one. Perhaps you’re interested in another kind of smartwatch or other wearable device and want to know Oracle’s position on wearables and the user experience. 

     

    Applying the Oracle Applications Cloud design philosophy to the smartwatch calls for an ideal realization of the first step of “Glance, Scan, Commit.” The UX needs to be simple, flexible, intuitive, and most of all, convenient. Smartwatch wearers need to keep that “right here, right now” feeling, having exactly what they need right when they need it.

     

    We’re excited by Apple’s announcement about their smartwatch, and we’re even more excited to show you what Oracle is doing about it. Click here to learn what we’ve already done and how that’s influencing the Oracle user experience.

    Emerging tech in the UX spotlight
    Abstract:

    Here’s a couple more ways Oracle continues to invest in the user experience

    Announcement:

    ORACLE’S CONTINUING UX INVESTMENT
    Oracle just pumped up its investment in the user experience -- again. The Oracle Applications Cloud user experience received a welcome infusion recently in the form of a newly expanded team studying new and emerging technologies. The goal is to understand how these technologies might influence the Oracle Applications Cloud UX. A new article from Jake Kuramoto on the Usable Apps website goes into more detail on the possible effects. Click here to check it out.

    THE AUGMENTED ENTERPRISE
    Augmented Reality (AR) sounds like a complex term, but it’s actually familiar to most people. It’s technology that adds real-time context to a user’s surroundings, and Google Glass is a great example. But AR’s current uses go way beyond that, and although it’s been around since the ’90s, it’s been waiting for devices to catch up. That time is now. Oracle is researching AR to inspire emerging-tech innovation among our own ranks. A recent article in Profit Online has more. Click here to give that a read.
