Rightware et RKS annoncent leur partenariat stratégique dans le domaine de la conception interactive

Rightware, chef de file de la conception d'interfaces utilisateur et de logiciels d'application, et RKS, premier cabinet de conseil en conception stratégique sis en Californie du Sud, annoncent leur association dans le domaine de la conception interactive sur les nouveaux marchés et les marchés émergents, notamment le divertissement, les tablettes, les smart TV et autres applications verticales intégrées.

Nous vivons une époque sans précédent en termes de technologie et d'interaction des utilisateurs. Les écrans tactiles jouent un rôle de plus en plus prépondérant pour l'interaction. Le choix est vaste, mais le champ des possibilités reste ouvert pour la création d'interfaces encore plus engageantes et dynamiques destinées aux voitures, aux téléphones, en passant par les tablettes et les ordinateurs. La vue, la sensation et le toucher peuvent être encore plus exploités et sollicités. L'ère est à la synergie en matière de conception, de technologie et de compréhension du comportement humain, mais ce fabuleux potentiel ne peut être réalisé que par le biais d'une compréhension maîtrisée alliée à des compétences techniques exceptionnelles.

Depuis 30 ans, RKS étudie la conception, la technologie et le comportement humain. Elle a conçu des solutions novatrices pour ses clients, qui permettent de conforter leur position dominante sur le marché et qui regroupent des sociétés Fortune 500 comme des start-up de secteurs concurrentiels divers : depuis le développement de nouvelles techniques commerciales jusqu’à la création de propriété intellectuelle (P.I.P) brevetable.

RKS est dirigée par Ravi Sawhney, concepteur et stratège chevronné. Fort de 35 années d'expérience dans le domaine de la conception, Ravi est reconnu dans le secteur comme le gourou de la conception. Il possède une profonde connaissance du marché des écrans tactiles, étayée par son rôle pivot dans la conception du premier écran tactile du secteur, il y a plus de 30 ans. Ravi sera l'orateur principal de la conférence Interaction13 d'IxDA qui se tiendra le 28 janvier 2013 à Toronto, au Canada, et qui portera sur le thème : Notre pouvoir d’autonomisation : la satisfaction tirée de la conception visant l’impact social. Interaction13 est une conférence mondiale annuelle qui s'étend sur 4 jours, et qui attire la communauté des concepteurs qui se consacrent à l'expérience et à l'interaction des utilisateurs.

Rightware est le leader du marché en technologie d'interface utilisateur intégrée 2D et 3D et en conception de l'expérience utilisateur, desservant les industries de la téléphonie mobile, de l'automobile et autres industries embarquées avec sa solution Kanzi® pour la conception et le déploiement rapides d'interfaces utilisateur 3D. La société envisage de pénétrer agressivement des marchés nouveaux et émergents, tels que le divertissement, les tablettes mobiles, les smart TV et autres applications verticales intégrées.

« Rightware et RKS ont toutes deux une passion commune pour la création d'expériences utilisateur véritablement uniques. Rightware a pour mission le développement de technologies et d'outils pour créer des interfaces utilisateur modernes, fluides et sensibles au contexte. Notre équipe d'ingénieurs travaille en collaboration avec les distributeurs de silicone et nos clients finals pour mettre en place des interfaces utilisateur haute-fidélité à la conception totalement libérée. Nous sommes très impressionnés par l'approche de RKS. Ils sont capables de prendre en charge nos clients avec leur conception graphique et interactive, et ils offrent également des services allant des outils marketing à la conception de produits en passant par la recherche avancée de nouveaux modèles d'interaction et le développement conceptuel. Notre partenariat nous permet de proposer aux clients, grands et petits, des expériences utilisateur commercialisables véritablement uniques », déclare Tero Sarkkinen, fondateur de Rightware et président des activités pour les États-Unis.

« Le profil et les capacités de Rightware correspondent bien à ceux de RKS. Les connaissances approfondies de la société en matière de technologie et de communauté Open Source, associée aux compétences de RKS dans le domaine de la conception, de la stratégie et des processus de développement de l'expérience utilisateur, promettent un partenariat fructueux », se réjouit Ravi Sawhney, fondateur et PDG de RKS Design.

"People are a lot more knowledgeable about APIs now. There are two types of people who work with APIs - IT people who want to use APIs for something internal and the product managers who want to do something outside APIs for people to connect to them," explained Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at SOA Software, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at Cloud Expo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos.

No enterprise can be complacent and not engage in the digital economy. Learn how to be the disruptor and not the disruptee.

LiveSpace Smart Environment devices deliver over the M2Mi IoT Platform real time presence, awareness and intent analytics as a service to local connected devices. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Sarah Cooper, VP Business of Development at M2Mi, will d...
Thanks to widespread Internet adoption and more than 10 billion connected devices around the world, companies became more excited than ever about the Internet of Things in 2014. Add in the hype around Google Glass and the Nest Thermostat, and nearly every business, including those from traditionally low-tech industries, wanted in. But despite the buzz, some very real business questions emerged – mainly, not if a device can be connected, or even when, but why? Why does connecting to the cloud create greater value for the user? Why do connected features improve the overall experience? And why do...
Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover.

Imagine a world where targeting, attribution, and analytics are just as intrinsic to the physical world as they currently are to display advertising. Advances in technologies and changes in consumer behavior have opened the door to a whole new category of personalized marketing experience based on direct interactions with products. The products themselves now have a voice. What will they say? Who will control it? And what does it take for brands to win in this new world? In his session at @ThingsExpo, Zack Bennett, Vice President of Customer Success at EVRYTHNG, will answer these questions a...

We’re entering a new era of computing technology that many are calling the Internet of Things (IoT). Machine to machine, machine to infrastructure, machine to environment, the Internet of Everything, the Internet of Intelligent Things, intelligent systems – call it what you want, but it’s happening, and its potential is huge. IoT is comprised of smart machines interacting and communicating with other machines, objects, environments and infrastructures. As a result, huge volumes of data are being generated, and that data is being processed into useful actions that can “command and control” thi...
