Design Systems

Our experience innovation team has been developing design system tools that accelerate innovation for both our teams and our clients. The core idea of a design system has been present for quite some time but now they are beginning to get their proper place within the design and development world as organizations are looking to leverage their design and development efforts and get their products and applications in production more rapidly. Design Systems contains both design principles and working examples of design elements, components, and layout. An underlying HTML markup accompanies each example and can be copy/pasted to ensure consistency and reduce errors HTML, CSS, and JavaScript is validated and tested across target browsers and WCAG 2.0 AA and can be leveraged for production environments.

Blockchain

Our team has been dabbling in distributed ledger systems to understand how we can assist our clients in testing this to drive efficiency and cost reduction in internal workflows as the industries are moving to adopt this on a larger scale. We are actively seeking projects to transform workflows and portions of the industry.

Artificial Intelligence

We are working actively with our clients to design interfaces and dashboards that incorporate pattern recognition and machine learning into the way that data is prioritized and presented. The emphasis is on enhancing the quality and speed of decision making. Examples include risk management dashboards that proactively highlight potential areas of concern and contextual action utilities that dynamically prioritize the most impactful next steps for a user trying to decide between dozens of possibilities. Additionally, we have thought through some of the essential design considerations for AI enhanced experiences.

Identity and Access Management

There is a continued shifting to Cloud based security platforms from on premise. What are the implications for your organization from a compliance, regulatory and user experience? We have experience with the leading platforms, including Okta, Ping Identity, and Duo.
