Cooking up Great User Experiences where Technology is the Key Ingredient
Any chef will tell you that a great meal relies on great ingredients. The same is true of creating great User Experiences (UX). You need to know your audience, understand what they are looking to accomplish, and deliver highly relevant, personalized and coherent experiences across an array of devices. If that isnâ€™t challenging enough on its own, you also need to understand the role that Technology plays in holding it all together. Too often, User Experiences are designed in a vacuum and Technology and Platform are just afterthoughts.
While UX serves digital interactions that are simple, enjoyable and successful, Technology adds the punch and brings these designed interactions to life. Donâ€™t miss out on this key, but often-overlooked ingredient, when you are cooking up your next great user experience!
