Back in September, our little team got a big boost when we launched official content under the official Oracle.com banner.
I’ve been doing this job for various different organizations at Oracle for nine years now, and we’ve always existed on the fringe. So, having our own home for content within the Oracle.com world is a major deal, further underlining Oracle’s increased investment in and emphasis on innovation.
Today, I’m excited to launch new content in that space, which, for the record is here:
We have a friendly, short URL too:
The new content focuses on the methodologies we use for research, design and development. So you can read about why we investigate emerging technologies and the strategy we employ, and then find out how we go about executing that strategy, which can be difficult for emerging technologies.
Sometimes, there are no users yet, making standard research tacits a challenge. Equally challenging is designing an experience from scratch for those non-existent users. And finally, building something quickly requires agility, lots of iterations and practice.
All-in-all, I’m very happy with the content, and I hope you find it interesting.
Not randomly, here are pictures of Noel (@noelportugal) showing the Smart Office in Australia last month.
The IoT Smart Office, just happens to be the first project we undertook as an expanded team in late 2014, and we’re all very pleased with the results of our blended, research, design and development team.
I hope you agree.
Big thanks to the writers, Ben, John, Julia, Mark (@mvilroxk) and Thao (@thaobnguyen) and to Kathy (@klbmiedema) and Sarahi (@sarahimireles) for editing and posting the content.
In the coming months, we’ll be adding more content to that space so stay tuned.
Hi Jake – it’s always an interesting read on The Apps Lab, and good to know that your hard work is getting the recognition it deserves. I’m still reading, after all these years 🙂
@Jim: Great to hear from you! As always, appreciate the kind words. It’s been a great journey, hoping to continue for another (gasp) decade.
