I started thinking about small changes equaling big results. Now some might align this with living a healthy life, but today I’m mapping it to Flexiant. We’ve made some changes to Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator – some might view these changes as small, but trust me when I say, they equal big results.
Fast Company published an article last year “Move Over Product Design, UX Is the Future” that opened:
For decades, the most successful businesses thrived on product innovation as the natural strategy to increase revenues, market share, and loyalty. Fast forward to 2014: today’s product innovations, and the growth they create, are often incremental, narrow, and fleeting. Take TVs or PCs—every competitor quickly matches the latest features, speed, brightness. As a result, companies are finding that returns from product efforts are harder to rely on…the experience.
The same is true for cloud service providers. The experience a customer has is hugely important.
Good user experience (UX) and user interface (UI) design can be the difference between a hugely successful product or one that fails to make any impact on the business. If your potential customers find your product to be too complicated to navigate or too confusing, then even the best service or product could amount to nothing.
UX/UI design focuses on anticipating what users might need to do, ensuring that the interface has elements that are easy to access, understand, and use to facilitate those actions. This brings together concepts from interaction design, visual design, and information architecture.
Jef Raskin, Interface expert at Apple Inc (circa 1970) said:
“As far as the customer is concerned, the interface is the product.”
