1. Problem and context
For users experienced in a web 2.0 interface, the classic ergonomics of ERP may seem outdated and unsuitable today. It is this observation, to which was added the need to develop an interface suitable for use via mobiles, which led Oracle to introduce into its PeopleSoft solutions a user interface complementary to the so-called classic interface: this is the Fluid User Interface.
Launched in 2014, with the PeopleTools 8.54, the Fluid UI was gradually extended, with the arrival of each new 9.2 image, and now covers as standard a large part of the functionality of the application.
2. The “Fluid User Interface”
The Fluid User interface is above all a new way of using the system. At the same time robust and intuitive, easier and simpler to use, it includes a new navigation mode and real-time analyzes (embedded BI). Focused on simplifying the entry and retrieval of information, it is particularly suited to user self-service functionalities. It is the interface automatically proposed when you connect to the application with a tablet or a smartphone, but it is also the interface to favor for beginners and all occasional users; the screens of the classic interface remain dedicated to expert users, likely to use all of the solution's features and options.
