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.

One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage. Companies are scrambling to adapt to this new and unpredictable data reality with legacy infrastructure that cannot handle the speed and volume of data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Infobright, will discuss how companies need to rethink their data infrastructure to participate in the IoT, including: Data storage: Understanding the kinds of data: structured, unstructured, big/small? Analytics: What kinds and how responsiv...
17th Cloud Expo, taking place Nov 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS – software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.
The Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) market will grow to $6.4B by 2018. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Seth Bostock, CEO of IndependenceIT, will begin by walking the audience through the evolution of Workspace as-a-Service, where it is now vs. where it going. To look beyond the desktop we must understand exactly what WaaS is, who the users are, and where it is going in the future. IT departments, ISVs and service providers must look to workflow and automation capabilities to adapt to growing demand and the rapidly changing workspace model.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to evolve the way the world does business; however, understanding how to apply it to your company can be a mystery. Most people struggle with understanding the potential business uses or tend to get caught up in the technology, resulting in solutions that fail to meet even minimum business goals. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jesse Shiah, CEO / President / Co-Founder of AgilePoint Inc., showed what is needed to leverage the IoT to transform your business. He discussed opportunities and challenges ahead for the IoT from a market and technical point of vie...
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...

The fragmented Hadoop distribution world and various PaaS solutions that provide a Hadoop flavor either make choices for customers very flexible in the name of opti...
In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...
