Montash blog: Digital UI & UX development platforms – Oracle and IBM

26/06/2015 by


Oracle UX Direct

Oracle's UX Direct development platform enables firms to improve the end-user experience by focusing on a three-step process – discover, design and deploy. Oracle's flexible and powerful user interface tools can create bespoke and fully customisable enterprise applications. Oracle Applications User Experience Vice President, Jeremy Ashley adds: “When you look at our apps … it should be very apparent what you are looking at. It should be very apparent why it would be useful to a particular role. We are making sure we are getting the right thing and presenting it in the simplest possible way. We give users less to learn and more opportunity to do their work. Our design is very approachable, touchable.”

Oracle Fusion Applications Functionality and Oracle Application Development Framework simplify UI and UX tasks and enable employees to access and work on the most frequently performed tasks across any device, while on the move. This anywhere, everywhere approach to development is ideal for an evolving, modern workforce that requires the full power of the Cloud and the fastest path to resolution.

IBM MobileFirst

Every development decision should always be made depending on its impact on the end user. IBM's Mobile First offers a suite of products that enables firms to build hybrid apps and a whole lot more. It offers flexibility and a range of enhanced features. The Mobile First Platform Foundation is available on-premise or via the Cloud and is ideal for building and monitoring secure apps in quick time, whether for iOS, Android or any other platforms. It consists of a MobileFirst Server that provides application authentication, analytics and data optimisation. It is available through IBM's MobileFirst Studio or via a Java Developer Kit and command line tools.

IBM's MobileFirst API offers server-side and client-side APIs depending on a firm's requirements. The server-side software offers a robust, built-in security framework and can be leveraged in JavaScript. The client-side API is preferable for cross-platform work and mobile web applications that can be built though C# native Windows Phone (C#), native Android (Java) and native iOS. The hybrid approach includes specific application skinning and UI components, while enabling for a flexible monitoring approach – updates can be pushed to live applications rather than having to go through the process of updating via an app store. Finally, Mobile First Application Scanning can add an additional layer of security during the software development lifecycle with tools that scan for security risks in HTML, Java and Objective-C code.
