Success Stories

The Oracle Applications User Experience design patterns have been used by Oracle's own developers as well as developers in partner and customer companies to help improve productivity and build in user experience (UX) best practices from the beginning. Read about a few successes with these UX design patterns here.

How did Vlad apply user experience design patterns? The user experience (UX) design patterns have helped Vlad raise awareness about the Oracle user experience process at workshops in Western Europe.

How did Floyd apply user experience design patterns? Floyd, an Oracle partner, built an Oracle Fusion Applications business intelligence application.


How did Jason apply user experience design patterns? Jason built an Oracle Fusion Application to show customers the steps in the application development process.

Vlad said: “Customers and their users want modern, easy-to-use Oracle Fusion Applications, especially in the mobile arena.”

Floyd said: “We need to reduce our application development time substantially to stay competitive.”


Jason said: “I want to show customers how easy it is to build an application with ADF and UX design patterns and deploy it to the Cloud.”

Project: Create and conduct workshops for European sales consultants that:

  • Clarify the value of integrating the Oracle Applications user experience from Oracle Fusion Applications into other cloud and mobile applications.
  • Explain how to build Oracle Fusion Applications with tools such as Oracle ADF Mobile and Mobile UX design patterns.

Project: EiS Technologies provides business intelligence (BI) reporting applications to its clients. The company wanted to build a new BI reporting application in Oracle Fusion Applications.

Project: Build a simple HCM Oracle Fusion Application and document each step in the process: defining requirements, wireframing, selecting design patterns, dragging and dropping Oracle Application Development Framework (ADF) components, and deploying the application by using the Java Cloud Service.

The challenge: Structure the workshop so that there are clear steps provided which discuss how to build an Oracle Fusion Application, including a mobile application. Find a way to give the workshop via the web to an audience spread over Western Europe.

The challenge: Past experiences show that it normally takes EiS about two years to build a beta version of a reporting application from concept to release. By that time, competitors are likely to beat EiS to the market. How can EiS deliver a new product to market faster?

The challenge: Some Oracle customers need to build custom applications to supplement Oracle Fusion Applications. They want to know how feasible it is to build a custom application, especially for cloud-based applications. Can we show them how to build custom applications with a step-by-step process that demonstrates how easy it is to do?

The solution: Vlad organized the workshop into one-hour segments that the audience can digest over the web. During the workshop, Vlad discusses the concept of user experience, and he explains how Oracle’s approach is broader than just designing the user interface for an application. Then he shows participants how to build a wireframe of a work flow in Microsoft Visio by applying the Oracle Fusion Applications UX design patterns. For the example application that Vlad builds during the workshop, he uses Oracle ADF Mobile and applies Mobile UX design patterns.

The solution: Floyd said that three events came together, making it possible to put together a process to build an application more quickly.

  • The release of Oracle ADF Essentials enabled EiS Technologies to build an application by using drag-and-drop components, rather than by coding the components in Java.
  • Oracle released the Oracle Fusion Applications User Experience (UX) Design Patterns and Guidelines. About 80 percent of the page designs that EiS Technologies applied for the application are found on this site.
  • The Oracle UX Direct program provided a user experience development process and a set of tools for user analysis, interaction design, and user experience measurement that EiS Technologies could use.

The solution: Jason and his team started by writing a use case for a simple application to manage employee information. They then built a wireframe of the work flow in Microsoft Visio by applying the Oracle Fusion Applications User Experience (UX) Design Patterns. The patterns enabled Jason and his team to quickly create the pages and flows in Oracle Fusion Applications. The application applied user experience best practices for Oracle’s next-generation enterprise applications, and included UX design patterns for Oracle Fusion Applications designs, such as the UI Shell, Search and Saved Search, Dynamic Tabs, Create In Form, and Maps Integration. Jason and his team then built the application with the Oracle ADF components from the patterns and deployed the application to the Oracle WebLogic Server in the Cloud.

The result: Vlad says the workshop is being received well. Attendees have told Vlad that the workshop provided them with tools to increase their productivity, and the productivity of Oracle customers.


The result: Floyd’s team built the beta version of the application in four months instead of the budgeted two years, representing an 80 percent gain in productivity for EiS Technologies.

The result: Jason teaches Oracle customers how to create tailored Oracle Fusion Applications. He offers workshops in which he demonstrates how easy it is to build an application by using Oracle ADF and applying user experience design patterns.
