Design Patterns and Guidelines for Oracle Applications
How to Use Patterns and Guidelines
Design patterns describe common flows or page designs that are used within an application. They are built according to common requirements using industry best practices and tested for usability. These design patterns, used internally by Oracle developers during the development process, are now available to you, ensuring consistent and compelling user experiences to your end users when customizing your applications.

Design centers encapsulate various design resources to help you customize your application of choice. Design centers generally feature comprehensive design patterns, guidelines, supporting documentation, articles, and downloads.

New Web Site Offers OBIEE 10g Design Patterns, Guidance in Using Them
By Kathy Miedema Mar. 14, 2011

When Oracle customers who were looking at customizing their business intelligence dashboards asked how Oracle creates its user experiences, the Oracle Applications User Experience (UX) team saw an opportunity.

A new Web site that offers details about the design patterns behind dashboards for OBIEE, Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition, is the result of that opportunity. Now customers have direct access to the actual guidelines, patterns, and even decision-support tools that Oracle designers used for OBIEE 10g.

Developing Oracle guidelines and standards

Madhuri Kolhatkar, Director of the Applications User Experience, said the idea to share Oracle design patterns took root about 2 ½ years ago. OBIEE was being integrated into the broader Oracle suite of products such as JD Ewards, E-Business Suite, and PeopleSoft. “There was a big desire for integrating business intelligence into enterprise applications,” she said. “Customers wanted to leverage information they already have in their enterprise applications for better decision-making.” OBIEE allowed users to create dashboards using data from enterprise systems, such as a supply chain dashboard for a trucking company. The dashboards show all of the metrics that a manager might try to track down, allowing him to display that data in a single dashboard and present it in a graphical way with charts.

As Oracle’s various product suites were building their separate dashboards, using OBIEE, there was a need to set standards, develop guidelines, and create design patterns that all fell under the Oracle umbrella.
