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.

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care. I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...
The vision of a connected smart home is becoming reality with the application of integrated wireless technologies in devices and appliances.

Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
