  1. User experience is often overlooked in website and app design and, indeed, the design of many things. How many times have you felt compelled to push a door only to find you need to pull it instead? While fire codes might dictate such design, it’s an example of user experience at work.

    While taking a moment to figure out whether a door is push or pull sounds like a small thing, those types of irritants can add up online -- and cost your business customers.

  2. Software has never been more accessible than it is today. User interface design has never been more straightforward, or more standardised. Today, we can all enjoy websites, products and applications without having to trade in hours of training and technical know-how.

    This widespread accessibility seems patently beneficial. After all, software proficiency is no longer the sole realm of programmers and IT experts. Technology has got over its elitism problem, and become inclusive to users of almost all skill levels.

    The question is: is this digital ‘dumbing down’ as desirable as it first appears? What we can gain in ease of use, we can also lose regarding user control. There is a fine line between dull and primitive; between refined and reduced. Unfortunately, there is no quick and easy answer as to just how quick and easy software should be.

  3. "I still think the user experience is crucial -- and it's about providing something that's right for the individual," says Cohen. "Technology departments must make sure they are providing the most optimal computing environment for their colleagues based on the state they're in -- whether that's fully connected, occasionally connected or entirely remote."

  4. t was not long ago when tablets were the craze, and technology was taken less seriously by businesses. Back then it was a perfect mix between people, technology, and process. Today, we are in an era when technology is improving, and people and process are gradually replaced by it.

    Although that may not be entirely true. It is actually a paradox since more often than not we introspect how technology has made our lives easier both from an individual and industrial point of view. One of those aspects which has helped build economies and various sectorial businesses is Machine Learning (ML). From automation to analysis of data, the technology has the power to learn without having to be explicitly programmed.

  5. Enterprise software often has a negative connotation because of the negative user experience associated with it. Two leading reasons why enterprise software isn’t cutting it are an overwhelming number of features and a general lack of intuitiveness.

    Contrary to what you might think, it isn’t only untrained employees that don’t understand the software. Even the younger, extremely tech-savvy generation entering the workplace struggles to understand how this convoluted technology works.

  6. Leaders in the digital age have to think about grooming the right talent for jobs of the future. We live in a world where connectivity is inevitable, and this makes the Internet of Things (IoT) stand out amongst the emerging technologies. IoT connectivity lies at the heart of digital transformation as it forms the foundation for a wide range of technologies including automation, Artificial Intelligence (AI), machine learning and robotics among others. The lack of understanding among decision makers of the potential benefits of IoT, and the limited maturity of the industry hinders its smooth adoption.

    The Talent Supply Index found that the demand for talent in IoT shot up 304 percent between 2014 and 2017. Although the continuous uptick in need for expertise in emerging technologies and more specifically IoT, the talent available has not grown at the same pace. The next question that comes to mind is “How should we bridge this gap?"

    Additional focus in the following four areas is required for organisations to be future ready:

  7. This article accepts a simple, obvious, and often forgotten premise: software continues to become more complex. Back in the mainframe days, manual code review was possible. That was a combination both simpler code being developed and slower change cycles. Advanced in hardware, software and user experience (UX) have massively increased both the volume and complexity of code. The web, smartphones, and other technology have both meant far more people using technology and causes a service oriented change to work to provide software updates faster.

  8. 95% of global business decision-makers face challenges when it comes to achieving a more successful digital strategy, including budget constraints, lack of visibility to manage the digital experience and legacy infrastructure.

  9. Consumers today have the power to book a room across the country, hail a ride to anywhere they want to go, or order nearly any product or service to be delivered to their doorstep – and all of this can be accomplished with just a couple of taps on a smartphone or tablet. In this digitally optimized environment, there’s no longer any room for credit unions to serve up suboptimal user experience via the digital channels offered to members.

    That’s because now, and most certainly into the future, digital is the branch. A superior member experience means a superior digital experience – there’s no getting around it. In fact, an online survey facilitated by The Harris Poll on behalf of D3 Banking Technology found that 32 percent of those who have used digital banking in the past 12 months would be willing to leave their current banking relationship for one with an easier digital experience. When credit unions leverage legacy, siloed technology – which many still do – they often can’t provide the features, functionality and user interface that members today expect.

  10. Virtual reality has skyrocketed in popularity in just a few short years. Ten years ago, VR tech simply wasn’t there, and if it was, the hardware was prohibitively expensive.

    Now, your smartphone can act as a VR headset. With Google Cardboard, a smartphone with VR capabilities, and a 3D printer, you can gain access to VR tech for almost no cost whatsoever.
