Everything You Should Know about Usability Testing

Posted by Madhu Yadav on Jan 11, 2018 9:51:00 AM

Usability testing helps organizations assess and evaluate an application or website on how well it’s perceived by users in terms of functionality and UX design. It measures the feedback of real end users in real scenarios to understand how well they believe the application is performing to meet their needs.

Also known as design testing, product testing, user testing, design validation, etc., usability testing is the core of the application design ideology because when executed with Accessibility Testing and A/B Testing, it can give a true sense of overall application usability. It does so by determining usability issues and identifying user satisfaction factors, by gathering and evaluating significant user interaction data, such as the time users spend on a page, how easy it was for them to navigate through the application, how many users uninstalled the app after using it once, etc.

Three Tips for a Successful Transition from FBL to HDL Data Loading Tools

Posted by Brian Kim on Oct 17, 2017 11:26:00 AM

HCM Data Loader (HDL) is a modern, powerful tool that organizations can use to bulk load data from any source to Oracle HCM Cloud software. The new technology supports both one-time data migration if an organization is, for example, moving from on-premise source system such as PeopleSoft or E-Business Suite applications to a cloud-based environment, as well as incremental load transfer for companies wanting to maintain legacy and cloud applications in a hybrid environment.

Long-time Oracle users who started on the HCM Cloud prior to version 9, however, will first have to migrate from the previous File-Based data Loader (FBL) data transfer tool before they can begin using HDL.

As is the case with most data integration or migration projects, proper planning for the transition from FBL to HDL can prevent a host of problems with the data and systems in the future.

Emtec recently participated in an Oracle HCM Talk Radio podcast about the transition.

Here are three tips—and how to use them properly—for ensuring a successful FBL to HDL migration.
