Rightware et RKS annoncent leur partenariat stratégique dans le domaine de la conception interactive

Rightware, chef de file de la conception d'interfaces utilisateur et de logiciels d'application, et RKS, premier cabinet de conseil en conception stratégique sis en Californie du Sud, annoncent leur association dans le domaine de la conception interactive sur les nouveaux marchés et les marchés émergents, notamment le divertissement, les tablettes, les smart TV et autres applications verticales intégrées.

Nous vivons une époque sans précédent en termes de technologie et d'interaction des utilisateurs. Les écrans tactiles jouent un rôle de plus en plus prépondérant pour l'interaction. Le choix est vaste, mais le champ des possibilités reste ouvert pour la création d'interfaces encore plus engageantes et dynamiques destinées aux voitures, aux téléphones, en passant par les tablettes et les ordinateurs. La vue, la sensation et le toucher peuvent être encore plus exploités et sollicités. L'ère est à la synergie en matière de conception, de technologie et de compréhension du comportement humain, mais ce fabuleux potentiel ne peut être réalisé que par le biais d'une compréhension maîtrisée alliée à des compétences techniques exceptionnelles.

Depuis 30 ans, RKS étudie la conception, la technologie et le comportement humain. Elle a conçu des solutions novatrices pour ses clients, qui permettent de conforter leur position dominante sur le marché et qui regroupent des sociétés Fortune 500 comme des start-up de secteurs concurrentiels divers : depuis le développement de nouvelles techniques commerciales jusqu’à la création de propriété intellectuelle (P.I.P) brevetable.

RKS est dirigée par Ravi Sawhney, concepteur et stratège chevronné. Fort de 35 années d'expérience dans le domaine de la conception, Ravi est reconnu dans le secteur comme le gourou de la conception. Il possède une profonde connaissance du marché des écrans tactiles, étayée par son rôle pivot dans la conception du premier écran tactile du secteur, il y a plus de 30 ans. Ravi sera l'orateur principal de la conférence Interaction13 d'IxDA qui se tiendra le 28 janvier 2013 à Toronto, au Canada, et qui portera sur le thème : Notre pouvoir d’autonomisation : la satisfaction tirée de la conception visant l’impact social. Interaction13 est une conférence mondiale annuelle qui s'étend sur 4 jours, et qui attire la communauté des concepteurs qui se consacrent à l'expérience et à l'interaction des utilisateurs.

Another aspect concerns how to deliver ...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
