A couple of weeks ago we highlighted some information by Anoop Savio about a pretty exciting new feature coming for PeopleSoft: the Fluid User Interface.
I’d like to follow that up with a video by Oracle in which PeopleSoft Senior Director Marc Weintraub interviews Willie Suh, Vice President of PeopleTools Development. It’s a great explanation of the purpose behind the PeopleSoft Fluid Interface functionality: essentially, in this day and age, people expect simple, intuitive interfaces for everything they do. Suh explains good interfaces in everyday life: phone navigation systems (and how they’re often better than the built-in $2,000 navigation systems found in many cars), and thermostats, whose interfaces, up until the Nest, have been Byzantine beyond reason.
Interfaces are not just for computer apps anymore: they’re for phones, appliances, and tablets. Having a smart fluid interface capability makes or breaks your user experience.Tags: fluid pages, oracle, PeopleSoft, peopletools 8.54, responsive design, smartphones, tablets, ui, UX Posted by
