Rightware e RKS anunciam parceria estratégica de design de interação

Rightware, líder em design de interface de usuário (UI) e implementação de software, e RKS, consultora líder de design estratégico sediada no sul da Califórnia, anunciaram que formaram uma parceria em design de interação para mercados novos e emergentes, incluindo entretenimento, tablets, smart TVs e outros verticais incorporados.

Esse é um momento sem precedentes para a tecnologia e a interação do usuário. As telas de toque estão se tornando uma maneira cada vez mais predominante de interagir. E com a grande quantidade de opções, ainda há espaço e oportunidade para criar interfaces ainda mais envolventes e dinâmicas: de carros a celulares, tablets e computadores. O que uma pessoa vê, sente e toca pode ser enriquecido em algo que ele ou ela nunca viu ou experienciou antes. Esta é uma época onde design, tecnologia e compreensão do comportamento humano vêm juntas; mas uma compreensão profunda e incríveis habilidades técnicas são necessárias para entender esse potencial.

A RKS se concentra em design, tecnologia e comportamento humano há mais de 30 anos. A empresa inovou com sucesso para os clientes—desde empresas Fortune 500 até empresas recém-lançadas de pequeno porte, em uma variedade de indústrias competitivas—desde o desenvolvimento de formas inovadoras de fazer negócios à criação de propriedade intelectual patenteável (IP), que confirma sua liderança no mercado.

A RKS é dirigida pelo designer e estrategista especializado Ravi Sawhney. Com mais de 35 anos de experiência em design, Ravi é conhecido na indústria como um guru do design. A compreensão profunda de Ravi sobre o mercado de telas de toque é ressaltada por seu papel fundamental na concepção da primeira tela de toque da indústria há mais de 30 anos. Ravi será o orador principal da conferência IxDA Interaction13 em Toronto, Canadá, em 28 de janeiro de 2013, sobre o tema Nossa poder de fortalecer: a satisfação de projetar para um impacto social. A Interaction13 é uma conferência global anual de quatro dias que atrai a comunidade de Experiência do Usuário e Design de Interação.

A Rightware é líder em tecnologia de interface do usuário (UI) incorporada 2D e 3D e design de experiência do usuário (UX), servindo à indústria móvel, automotiva e outras indústrias incorporadas com sua solução Kanzi® de design e implantação rápida de interface de usuário 3D. A empresa visa expandir agressivamente para mercados novos e emergentes, incluindo entretenimento, tablet móvel, smart TVs e outros setores incorporados.

"Rightware e RKS compartilham uma paixão para a criação de experiências de usuário verdadeiramente únicas. A Rightware se concentra no desenvolvimento de tecnologia e de ferramentas para criar interfaces de usuário fluentes, modernas e sensíveis a contexto. Nossa equipe de engenheiros trabalha com fornecedores de silício e com os nossos clientes finais para implementar interfaces de usuário de alta fidelidade com total liberdade de design. Estamos muito impressionados com a abordagem que a RKS traz. Eles são capazes de dar suporte aos nossos clientes não só com design gráfico e de interação, mas também com serviços que vão desde ferramentas de marketing e design de produto até pesquisa avançada de novos modelos de interação e desenvolvimento de conceito. Nossa parceria nos ajuda a dar suporte aos clientes, grandes e pequenos, com experiências de usuário verdadeiramente únicas e comercializáveis​​", disse Tero Sarkkinen, fundador e presidente de operações da Rightware nos EUA.

"O perfil e as capacidades da Rightware são uma combinação muito interessante para a RKS. O profundo entendimento da empresa sobre tecnologia e a Comunidade de Fonte Aberta, combinado com o design, as habilidades estratégicas e o conhecimento abrangente dos processos de desenvolvimento de experiência do usuário da RKS, constituem uma parceria muito promissora", disse Ravi Sawhney, fundador e diretor executivo da RKS Design.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...

Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings, but these are just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to optimizing their backend AWS offerings, Amazon is laying the ground work to be a major force in IoT - especially in the connected home and office. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Kocher, founder and managing director of Grey Heron, explained how Amazon is extending its reach to become a major force in IoT by building on its dominant cloud IoT platform, its Dash Button strat...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...
