The Next UX Revolution: Transforming Stodgy Enterprise Applications Into Engaging Experiences

The Next UX Revolution: Transforming Stodgy Enterprise Applications Into Engaging Experiences | UXploration | Scoop.it

As consumer UX underwent a renaissance over the last decade, enterprise software stagnated with a design sensibility from the dial-up era.

Usability—much less beauty—was never a priority for business software. All that mattered was that large and complex applications worked. What’s the point of tweaking and beautifying when basic functionality is challenging enough and all of your competitors are equally sub par?

The point is users. Not yesterday’s users who eventually adapted to whatever complex software product you put in front of them. Those users are retiring. I’m talking about millennial workers who know better than to settle for unwieldy, confusing applications that only make their jobs harder.

Getting Revenue From Unhappy Customers

Getting Revenue From Unhappy Customers | UXploration | Scoop.it

Bad profits are a ticking time bomb. Customers who are dissatisfied with the service or quality of a product are not only less likely to repurchase it, they are also more likely to tell their friends about the bad experience.

As startups tend to show it these days, quality has to come back in the mix and the time bomb sales should definitely be banned ... at least not encouraged.

I think this is a good attempt at reviewing some popular usability testing tools, however, the review itself seems a bit shallow. Anybody else has something to say about this?

Depending on the context, yes.

Are Severe Problems Uncovered Earlier in Usability Tests?

Are Severe Problems Uncovered Earlier in Usability Tests? | UXploration | Scoop.it

The advantage of looking at multiple studies using different devices, facilitators, and evaluators is that we don't need to rely on a single study with its potential flaws and idiosyncrasies to draw a conclusion about the relationship between frequency and severity.

Mario K. Sakata's insight:

Frequency & severity aren't correlated.

The Most Fundamental Concept in Usability

The Most Fundamental Concept in Usability | UXploration | Scoop.it

There are a number of methods to improve the usability of an interface.  While it's hard to identify one overarching concept that's fundamental to the whole idea of usability, I think there's one that underlies most methods and desirable outcomes.  That concept is that the developer is not the user.
