Inside Mobile Design and User Experience

Thoughts on mobile and social business applications, design, and user experience, by Chris Reckling.

IBM Connect is just around the corner - yikes! Once again, the user experience and info management teams will have a lab in Asia 4, to the left of the elevators to the partner showcase - also known as, 'the same place as the previous years'. IBM Design Thinking is a big emphasis for us this year and indeed, across all of IBM. We will have a number of activities in the studio for you to participate in, as well as the usual one on one feedback sessions we typically do.

I will be speaking on Wednesday, 4:15 pm (or 16:15 if you prefer) during What's New in Connections Mobile, with my colleague Baan Slavens (Product Mgr). During that session, we only have 27 slides, including all the obligatory titles, disclaimers, and conclusions!! That means more time for DEMOS. I plan to roll up a comprehensive look at all the things you can do with the current product (which by the way, you can use against the site when you get your IDs), then unveil a look at our 2014 release plans. We are using the IBM Design Thinking tools to plan and execute on this release, so inevitably, you will start to hear us talk differently about our products.

To hear more about IBM Design Thinking, go to Ethan Perry's session, AD102 IBM Design Thinking for IBM SmartCloud for Social Business. Wed at 1:30 pm. Despite the title, the description says: IBM Design thinking focuses on creating great experiences for our users. Come learn how we discover and envision new design concepts to provide a compelling, integrated experience that works for you.

Here's the flyer that will go in the backpacks. The photobooth is back! The mobile team will have a short survey to fill out (on an ipad, of course) to understand when and where you use your device at different times of the day. One of the primary principles of design thinking is to understand the user, so there are a number of interactive activities to help us do that - and they're fun, too!!

See you there. If you can't make it to Orlando this year, check back on this blog for reports during the week.
