LEARN MORE ABOUT THE ORACLE FUSION APPLICATIONS USER EXPERIENCE: The team also recently held special training for several members of the Oracle Fusion User Experience Advocates (FXA) group. Read more about the one-day event to learn how you can take advantage of the group’s unique training on the Oracle Fusion Applications user experience at your next user group event.

INNOVATIVE USE OF SOCIAL MEDIA: Responding to FXA Chris Muir's LinkedIn call, Director of Oracle Global User Experience Ultan O'Broin (@ultan) contributed an "I am an Oracle Applications user experience professional ..." post to the Application Development Framework Enterprise Methodology Group's (ADF EMG) online forum about user experience in January. For a worldwide audience (700+ members), O’Broin described what user experience is and the tangible benefits for applications developers and implementers. The discussion ranged from top usability tips and tricks to the more complex use of ADF persistence framework for tailoring and language support. One forum respondent said the exchange was "very informative and constructive discussion, and it's really amazing to see how the [Oracle] Fusion product was designed with UX in mind." Another said he's now "participated in a usability study for new JDev UI features." Read more on the VoX blog.
