Rightware e RKS anunciam parceria estratégica de design de interação

Rightware, líder em design de interface de usuário (UI) e implementação de software, e RKS, consultora líder de design estratégico sediada no sul da Califórnia, anunciaram que formaram uma parceria em design de interação para mercados novos e emergentes, incluindo entretenimento, tablets, smart TVs e outros verticais incorporados.

Esse é um momento sem precedentes para a tecnologia e a interação do usuário. As telas de toque estão se tornando uma maneira cada vez mais predominante de interagir. E com a grande quantidade de opções, ainda há espaço e oportunidade para criar interfaces ainda mais envolventes e dinâmicas: de carros a celulares, tablets e computadores. O que uma pessoa vê, sente e toca pode ser enriquecido em algo que ele ou ela nunca viu ou experienciou antes. Esta é uma época onde design, tecnologia e compreensão do comportamento humano vêm juntas; mas uma compreensão profunda e incríveis habilidades técnicas são necessárias para entender esse potencial.

A RKS se concentra em design, tecnologia e comportamento humano há mais de 30 anos. A empresa inovou com sucesso para os clientes—desde empresas Fortune 500 até empresas recém-lançadas de pequeno porte, em uma variedade de indústrias competitivas—desde o desenvolvimento de formas inovadoras de fazer negócios à criação de propriedade intelectual patenteável (IP), que confirma sua liderança no mercado.

A RKS é dirigida pelo designer e estrategista especializado Ravi Sawhney. Com mais de 35 anos de experiência em design, Ravi é conhecido na indústria como um guru do design. A compreensão profunda de Ravi sobre o mercado de telas de toque é ressaltada por seu papel fundamental na concepção da primeira tela de toque da indústria há mais de 30 anos. Ravi será o orador principal da conferência IxDA Interaction13 em Toronto, Canadá, em 28 de janeiro de 2013, sobre o tema Nossa poder de fortalecer: a satisfação de projetar para um impacto social. A Interaction13 é uma conferência global anual de quatro dias que atrai a comunidade de Experiência do Usuário e Design de Interação.

A empresa visa expandir agressivamente para mercados novos e emergentes, incluindo entretenimento, tablet móvel, smart TVs e outros setores incorporados.

"Rightware e RKS compartilham uma paixão para a criação de experiências de usuário verdadeiramente únicas. A Rightware se concentra no desenvolvimento de tecnologia e de ferramentas para criar interfaces de usuário fluentes, modernas e sensíveis a contexto. Nossa equipe de engenheiros trabalha com fornecedores de silício e com os nossos clientes finais para implementar interfaces de usuário de alta fidelidade com total liberdade de design.

Nossa parceria nos ajuda a dar suporte aos clientes, grandes e pequenos, com experiências de usuário verdadeiramente únicas e comercializáveis​​", disse Tero Sarkkinen, fundador e presidente de operações da Rightware nos EUA.

"O perfil e as capacidades da Rightware são uma combinação muito interessante para a RKS. O profundo entendimento da empresa sobre tecnologia e a Comunidade de Fonte Aberta, combinado com o design, as habilidades estratégicas e o conhecimento abrangente dos processos de desenvolvimento de experiência do usuário da RKS, constituem uma parceria muito promissora", disse Ravi Sawhney, fundador e diretor executivo da RKS Design.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
There's Big Data, then there's really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, demonstrated how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
