It’s been nearly a year since Oracle partner Boxfusion Consulting took part in an intense, hands-on workshop with the Oracle Applications User Experience (OAUX) team. During the workshop, the OAUX team helped facilitate the design of a custom add-on software solution for Boxfusion customer Panasonic, using one of the OAUX rapid development kits (RDKs). Take a look at the results and what Boxfusion has to say about using the RDKs in “Oracle SaaS partner Boxfusion Consulting says OAUX RDK helps ‘deliver better, future-proof solutions.”
Boxfusion Cloud Lead Luis Figueira
In the post, Boxfusion cloud lead Luis Figueira says: “Training was very easy and the customer was able to pick it up and roll out the training to their users (internal and external) independently. Most of this is down to the UX patterns, that users were already familiar with, thereby easing adoption.”
The OAUX team just announced the release of another RDK in a post on the OAUX Blog, “Oracle Conversational UI for the Enterprise Rapid Development Kit (RDK).” Conversational UIs are enterprise-level chatbots that can help streamline a workflow. Good user experience (UX) design is essential in simplifying the experience and making it efficient and useful on a mobile device. For more about conversational UIs, see another new post on the OAUX blog.

Singapore trip targets partners, customers
The OAUX team was recently in Singapore to run a PaaS4SaaS Integrated Cloud hackathon with partners. Partners were challenged to integrate at least three of 18 Oracle Cloud Services provided for the event. All teams exceeded that goal and said they found integrating PaaS and SaaS services easy to do. Organizer and OAUX team member Laurie Pattison says they had fun, too: For more on the event and other customer feedback activities that happened while OAUX team members were in Singapore, see her post on the OAUX Blog: “OAUX in Singapore: Hackathon transforms cloud UX ideas into reality.”
