Oracle Forms Modernization

As one of the world’s largest transit authorities, NYC Metropolitan Transit Authority is looking to reduce call center volume and connect 40,000 employees of all backgrounds and demographics to the existing back-office UTS application in Oracle Forms. They want an intuitive interface to interact with the workers that will not require extensive technical training to operate. As a POC, they decided to leverage ChatBot technology so employees could use natural language to interface with the application through AI technology.
Currently shift workers at MTA need to contact a call center up 2 days in advance to know where they will be working and get their shift location and information. In addition, they can not get directions to the site and need to jot down details of the shift from the phone. Now with this new application workers can get shift details with ease. By simply chatting with the Bot application, they can get time, duration and shift details instantly. And what more, they can even get a map with directions or a trip advisor with the exact route to the shift by public transport.

Since the Chatbot can communicate with them in natural language, it will not require them to do any training to utilize the application and they can jump right in to get the vital job details they require.

Oracle Forms Chatbot Solution

Using a patented solution called AuraPlayer, MTA was able to extend the Oracle Forms application as Microservices without redevelopment of the underlying application. The REST services were then utilized by Oracle’s Intellegent Bot, a key feature of Oracle Mobile Cloud, to create the conversational user interface. Using natural language, it can successfully answer such questions as “where is my shift”, “where am I working”, “I feel sick” and many others. Using this solution, any HR workflow can now become a simple and enjoyable chat application for MTA employees.
AuraPlayer brings a new level of agility and mobility to back office systems including Oracle Forms, EBS, PeopleSoft and JDE with low-risk, flexible, automated solutions without redevelopment. The patented solution allows developers to wrap their existing back office applications as Microservices to plug into any user interface or device, without the need for a cumbersome Java applet or complex infrastructure. Allowing customers to begin their digital transformations while leveraging existing investments.
