UX in the Cloud: Creating Amazing Enterprise Apps

A session at SXSW Interactive 2012

Tuesday 13th March, 2012

12:30pm to 1:30pm (CST)

Enterprise and consumer experiences are blurring more everyday as applications move to the cloud and companies build a vertical stack of offerings. Today's Facebook and Twitter generation expect their applications to be as easy and enjoyable to use as consumer applications. As the cloud evolves, our design process must evolve with it. What does the enterprise user experience design process look like today and where is it going? Guided by examples from Salesforce and Do, learn about the unique challenges and solutions of designing usable applications for enterprise users.
