Technologies or Products Used: Oracle Alta UI, Application Design Principles

Session Summary for Attendees:  Mobile app design has raised the bar for the design of modern business applications. Business users now expect the speed and intuitiveness of mobile apps to be in the applications they run at work. In addition, modern business applications may need to support multiple display devices and their mobile capabilities such as orientation change.

This session examines why our application user interfaces—using popular development environments such as APEX, JET, MAF, MAX, VBCS, JavaScript, Java, ADF, or even Oracle Forms—need to comply with principles used in mobile apps. It then reviews standards available from sources such as Oracle Alta UI for guiding user interface design of new or existing applications, so they fulfill expectations for device support and intuitiveness. The presentation also shows example applications that demonstrate mobile design principles and gives resources for further study.
