“What’s measured gets managed. Numbers have an important story to tell.”—Peter Drucker.
What is data-driven design (DDD) and why should we care about it? UX design uses research data of various kinds to determine how to provide an optimal user experience. Forbes has described some key customer analytics, including customer satisfaction, lifetime-value, segmentation, sales-channels, Web, social-media, engagement, churn, and acquisition analytics. This data helps product teams understand their target users, reveals information about users’ painpoints, unearths new trends, supports data-driven design, and assures teams that their work is on track. User data can lead directly to improved business outcomes. UX methods incorporate data-driven design, which has proven, tangible results. Read More

The digital age has brought us many technological advances, making our lives more convenient and connected. However, with these advancements have come challenges, particularly around data privacy and security. That’s where the intersection of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and User Experience comes into play.
