Rightware y RKS Anuncian la Firma de un Convenio Estratégico de Diseño de Interacción

Rightware, la empresa líder en diseño e implementación de software de interface de usuario (IU), y RKS, la empresa consultora líder en diseño estratégico con base en el sur de California, anuncian que han conformado una alianza para el Diseño de Interacción para mercados nuevos y emergentes incluyendo entretenimiento, tabletas, televisores inteligentes y otros verticales integrados.

La de hoy es una época sin precedentes para la interacción de la tecnología con el usuario. Las pantallas táctiles cada vez más se están transformando en una predominante manera de interactuar. Y con la variada cantidad de opciones, todavía quedan espacio y posibilidades para crear interfaces aún más interesantes y dinámicas: desde automóviles hasta teléfonos, tabletas y computadoras. Lo que una persona ve, siente y toca puede ser enriquecido y transformado en algo que él o ella nunca ha visto o se ha implicado con anterioridad. Ésta es un área en la que confluyen el diseño, la tecnología y la comprensión del comportamiento humano; pero se requieren un profundo entendimiento y excepcionales habilidades técnicas para desarrollar el potencial.

RKS se ha centrado en el diseño, la tecnología y el comportamiento humano durante más de 30 años. La empresa ha desarrollado exitosamente innovaciones para clientes, desde compañías Fortune 500 hasta pequeños emprendimientos, en un amplio rango de industrias competitivas, desde el desarrollo innovador de nuevas maneras de realizar negocios, hasta la creación de propiedad intelectual patentable (PI), todo lo cual ha cementado el liderazgo en el mercado.

RKS es dirigida por el diseñador experto y estratega Ravi Sawhney. Con más de 35 años de experiencia en la industria del diseño, Ravi es reconocido como un gurú del diseño. La profunda comprensión por parte de Ravi del mercado de la pantalla táctil es enfatizada por su rol instrumental en el diseño de la primera pantalla táctil de la industria hace ya más de 30 años. Ravi será el disertante central en la Conferencia Interaction13 de la IxDA en Toronto, Canadá, el 28 de enero de 2013, sobre el tema Nuestro poder para potenciar: la satisfacción de diseñar para generar impacto social. Interaction13 es una conferencia global anual de cuatro días de duración que conglomera la experiencia del usuario con la comunidad del diseño de interacción.

Rightware es líder en tecnologías 2D y 3D integradas con el usuario (IU) y en diseño de experiencia del usuario (XU), prestando servicio a las industrias de las comunicaciones móviles, automotriz y otras industrias integradas mediante su solución Kanzi® para diseño y utilización de interfaces rápidas de usuario 3D. La empresa busca expandirse dinámicamente en los mercados nuevos y emergentes incluyendo el del entretenimiento, las tabletas móviles, los televisores inteligentes y otros verticales integrados.

“Tanto Rightware como RKS comparten una pasión por crear experiencias verdaderamente únicas para el usuario. Rightware se centra en desarrollar tecnología y herramientas para crear interfaces modernas, orientadas al contexto y de acceso fluido para el usuario. Nuestro equipo de ingenieros trabaja en estrecha relación con los vendedores de hardware y con nuestros usuarios finales a fin de implementar interfaces de usuario de alta fidelidad con una completa libertad de diseño. Estamos sumamente impresionados por la estrategia que desarrolla RKS. Son capaces de dar soporte a nuestros clientes no solamente en relación con el diseño gráfico y la interacción sino también ofrecer servicios que van desde herramientas para comercialización y diseño de productos hasta la investigación avanzada para la obtención de nuevos modelos de interacción y el desarrollo de conceptos. Nuestro convenio nos ayuda a dar soporte a los clientes, sean estos grandes o pequeños, con experiencias del usuario verdaderamente únicas y comercializables”, manifiesta Tero Sarkkinen, Fundador y Presidente de Operaciones para los Estados Unidos de Rightware.

“El perfil y las capacidades de Rightware son un aporte muy interesante para RKS. La profunda percepción de la empresa dentro de la comunidad tecnológica así como de los recursos abiertos combinado con el diseño, las habilidades estratégicas y la meticulosa comprensión de los procesos de desarrollo de la experiencia del usuario constituyen una asociación muy prometedora”, sostiene Ravi Sawhney, Fundador y Director Ejecutivo de RKS Design.

"IBM is really all in on blockchain. We take a look at sort of the history of blockchain ledger technologies. It started out with bitcoin, Ethereum, and IBM evaluated these particular blockchain technologies and found they were anonymous and permissionless and that many companies were looking for permissioned blockchain," stated René Bostic, Technical VP of the IBM Cloud Unit in North America, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Conventi...
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Smart cities have the potential to change our lives at so many levels for citizens: less pollution, reduced parking obstacles, better health, education and more energy savings. Real-time data streaming and the Internet of Things (IoT) possess the power to turn this vision into a reality. However, most organizations today are building their data infrastructure to focus solely on addressing immediate business needs vs. a platform capable of quickly adapting emerging technologies to address future ...
We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

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 lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
