Here’s a snapshot.
There are 30 new users since yesterday, which seems like a nice growth rate to me. Clayton mentioned over OraTweet yesterday that adoption was slower than he anticipated. Based on the comments left here and direct email I’ve been getting, the demand seems about right so far.
We don’t have a good way to measure the number of Oracle employees sporting iPhones, but I’ve heard it’s somewhere between 4,000 and 8,000. That’s a pretty generous range, and frankly, I have no idea how reliable those numbers are.
Correct me in comments.
The only thing close to a measure I have is the Connect “Have an iPhone?” group, which has 1,000+ members, still not that dependable. Anyway, there are a lot iPhones out there.
The app meets a very useful unit of work, so maybe Clayton has a point. That unit of work is the one where you’re away from your computer and need contact information for someone. I’d hazard a guess that use case has or will come up at least once for every iPhone user who works for Oracle.
This assumption is confirmed by the data too. According to the metrics, the most common action is PersonDetailView, which means looking at someone’s profile. It’s significantly more common than EnterPassword (#2) and PerformSearch (#3).
This says to me that the app is living up to its name.
Anyway, I love data pr0n, so I figured I’d share it with you.
Do you use the Oracle People app? What do you think of it? What do you think it’s missing?
Sound off in comments.
