  1. THERE are a lot of exciting stories about companies using AR and VR and about experts suggesting that the technologies are going to revolutionize every industry — from manufacturing to education.

    However, if have you actually tried using the technology, it might seem difficult and you might feel that it doesn’t really lend itself to every kind of situation without a lot of adaptation.

    Don’t blame the technology for it. The technology, to be clear, has a tonne of potential. It can really help businesses transform their workplace and their strategies.

  2. For many retailers, improving the customer experience involves simplifying e-commerce to rely on fewer clicks and supplementing text search for the ever-potent, AI-powered visual search feature.

    Whether it be for navigating outfit inspiration, as seen on platforms such as Pinterest and ShopStyle or creating hyper-personalized recommendations, witnessed in Spotify and Netflix, the bottom line is through these technologies, retailers further empower their shoppers and guide purchases.

    In a similar mission, the winner of Digiday’s Best Retail Technology award, Syte, aims to provide a cutting-edge visual AI search, which offers the necessary immersive experience and improved user journey shoppers crave — all beginning with the shopper’s chosen image.

  3. For the past few months, I’ve contributed to ChRIS (Childrens’ Research Integration Service) as a user experience (UX) designer.ChRIS is a cloud-based, open source framework for processing medical imaging data; it was originally conceived by a team at Boston Children’s Hospital and successfully executed with help from the Mass Open Cloud (MOC) and Red Hat.

    Working on the ChRIS project is fulfilling in a direct way; it applies open source technology and principles to improve patient care. Doctors shouldn’t have to be computer scientists to be able to use the best innovations in medical image processing technology to improve their patients’ outcomes.

    Enabling doctors to make use of leading-edge, yet frustratingly esoteric, software to improve patient care is an example of the larger challenge of UX in open source. Open source software is ubiquitous: it’s running and improving systems and services around the world, and sadly has a well-earned reputation for terrible UX. Technology’s core functionality is not enough: a great UX is necessary to unlock its full potential!

  4. Most companies building software tout the great user experiences (UX) they provide, but enterprise users seldom agree. After all, everyday apps are intuitive but enterprise applications still tend to require conformance. With Infragistics Indigo.Design, enterprise designers and developers can cooperatively deliver the kinds of UX outcomes their customers expect.

    Part of the problem is the traditional disconnect between designers and developers. Designers propose ideas that developers can’t readily encode, which creates friction. Designers are frustrated that developers can’t easily implement the desired visions. Conversely, developers wish designers understood technology constraints.

  5. 'Consumerisation has meant that user expectations for enterprise technologies have been set by everything from smart homes and entertainment devices to games and mobile apps. Can expectations for user experience ever be met in enterprise apps, or are they incompatible with security and business considerations? JASON WALSH investigates...

  6. Next-level enterprise requires next-level technologies, including cloud technologies, cognitive systems, hyper-personalized user experiences, intelligent bots, augmented reality and messaging platforms that deliver relevant messaging in seconds. We are entering a world of ambient technology, where the computer becomes invisible and unobtrusive as the environment becomes more intelligent. For large-scale enterprises, it’s about delivering frictionless value to customers and users. For IT teams, it’s about doing more with less.

  7. There is a growing focus on user experience and application programming interfaces (APIs) with the ongoing launch of digital propositions in the banking and lending sectors driving this. This is mainly due to the requirements of “millennial” customers.

    Many of these customers are used to the look and feel of gaming software, as a result smart phone technology is increasingly being used to deal with applying for and servicing financial services products. To get ahead of this trend, there are currently IT development teams in financial services software businesses working hard to ensure that they deliver a great user experience to users of their software.

  8. Some brands have tried -- not particularly successfully -- to use new technologies like augmented reality to create more customized experiences. The companies that have succeeded are those that truly understand what customers want and need and that use technology as merely a means to that end.

  9. Whether we are ready of not, the age of Machines is already underway. The rise of Artificial intelligence (AI) is empowering machines to work and react the way humans do. As disruptive technologies infiltrate our lives, affecting everything from how we live, work and entertain ourselves, more and more researchers say that this is just the beginning – we haven’t seen anything yet. According to a recent report by McKinsey, for example, advances in robotics, AI, and machine learning herald a new era of breakthrough innovation and opportunity.

    Artificial Intelligence is the most talked about technology of our time, and for good reason. AI facilitates machine intelligence, increases efficiency, simplifies routine tasks and makes it easier for humans to focus on the intellectual aspects of a given process.

  10. Many times in designing and developing the user experience (UX) related to systems and services, something gets left out of the equation: the user. In a recent tweet, Jason Williams, expressed the need to rectify this so well:"You can't start with the technology and then develop the customer experience (UX).You have to start with the customer experience and work backwards to the technology."
