  1. Platform UX: Integrating Applications Through Sharing Data

    January 21, 2019

    Enterprise software faces a number of UX challenges, including the following:

    • Enterprise solutions often depend on integrations between multiple applications.
    • Few of these applications were built with the intent of integrating them into a system that supports a cohesive user experience.

    There is a profound lack of information on UX-research approaches that are suitable for exploring integration issues for enterprise software.

    This article is Part 1 of a series in which I’ll examine several critical software-integration considerations from a UX perspective. In Part 1, I’ll focus on how to characterize users’ mental models of the data that underlie enterprise systems.

This article outlines specific approaches for characterizing both the current and ideal workflows for viewing, adding, or modifying data across multiple applications. It also identifies success criteria for use when evaluating integrated user experiences. Read More

However, without a unified UX design, users will struggle to use such systems to carry out their essential tasks. Regardless of your employees’ level of IT literacy, they should be able to utilize and comprehend the system quickly. Therefore, ensuring the success of ERP software requires its design using user-centered concepts. Read More
