Happening Right Now
Here at InvGate, we fully embrace the idea that User Experience has a big part to play in the future of software development. We believe that this is especially true for apps in the ITSM and ITAM space because these apps are mission critical for most organizations. To help advance the discussion on UX, we are reaching out through our blog and social accounts to get some important questions answered.
We Want To Hear From You!
We want to hear how UX impacts you on a daily basis. We’re looking for examples and stories about what excites you when it comes to UI and UX.
For all of the developers and designers out there that have a passion for UX, what drives you? Where do you find inspiration? How do you incorporate User Testing into the mix?
Here are some other questions we’re posing to the Twitterverse over the next several days:
Q1 - When was the first time you were able to appreciate UX and what impact did that moment have on you moving forward? #UXresults
Q2 - What apps, devices, and websites stand out to you thanks to their UX? #UXresults
Q3 - UX can mean different things to different people. what does it mean to you? #UXresults
Q4 - What impact does UX have when you’re training staff on a new piece of software? #UXresults
Q5 - How does interface design factor into your love (or hate!) of software? What about in the devices you use? #UXresults
We will collect our favorite responses and insights so that we can share them in a follow up post! Reach out and @ us on Twitter with your own stories and make sure to include #UXresults in your tweets to ensure we see you!
