Rightware y RKS Anuncian la Firma de un Convenio Estratégico de Diseño de Interacción

Rightware, la empresa líder en diseño e implementación de software de interface de usuario (IU), y RKS, la empresa consultora líder en diseño estratégico con base en el sur de California, anuncian que han conformado una alianza para el Diseño de Interacción para mercados nuevos y emergentes incluyendo entretenimiento, tabletas, televisores inteligentes y otros verticales integrados.

La de hoy es una época sin precedentes para la interacción de la tecnología con el usuario. Las pantallas táctiles cada vez más se están transformando en una predominante manera de interactuar. Y con la variada cantidad de opciones, todavía quedan espacio y posibilidades para crear interfaces aún más interesantes y dinámicas: desde automóviles hasta teléfonos, tabletas y computadoras. Lo que una persona ve, siente y toca puede ser enriquecido y transformado en algo que él o ella nunca ha visto o se ha implicado con anterioridad. Ésta es un área en la que confluyen el diseño, la tecnología y la comprensión del comportamiento humano; pero se requieren un profundo entendimiento y excepcionales habilidades técnicas para desarrollar el potencial.

RKS se ha centrado en el diseño, la tecnología y el comportamiento humano durante más de 30 años. La empresa ha desarrollado exitosamente innovaciones para clientes, desde compañías Fortune 500 hasta pequeños emprendimientos, en un amplio rango de industrias competitivas, desde el desarrollo innovador de nuevas maneras de realizar negocios, hasta la creación de propiedad intelectual patentable (PI), todo lo cual ha cementado el liderazgo en el mercado.

RKS es dirigida por el diseñador experto y estratega Ravi Sawhney. Con más de 35 años de experiencia en la industria del diseño, Ravi es reconocido como un gurú del diseño. La profunda comprensión por parte de Ravi del mercado de la pantalla táctil es enfatizada por su rol instrumental en el diseño de la primera pantalla táctil de la industria hace ya más de 30 años. Ravi será el disertante central en la Conferencia Interaction13 de la IxDA en Toronto, Canadá, el 28 de enero de 2013, sobre el tema Nuestro poder para potenciar: la satisfacción de diseñar para generar impacto social. Interaction13 es una conferencia global anual de cuatro días de duración que conglomera la experiencia del usuario con la comunidad del diseño de interacción.

Rightware es líder en tecnologías 2D y 3D integradas con el usuario (IU) y en diseño de experiencia del usuario (XU), prestando servicio a las industrias de las comunicaciones móviles, automotriz y otras industrias integradas mediante su solución Kanzi® para diseño y utilización de interfaces rápidas de usuario 3D. La empresa busca expandirse dinámicamente en los mercados nuevos y emergentes incluyendo el del entretenimiento, las tabletas móviles, los televisores inteligentes y otros verticales integrados.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

Big Data engines are powering a lot of service businesses right now. Data is collected from users from wearable technologies, web behaviors, purchase behavior as well as several arbitrary data points we’d never think of. The demand for faster and bigger engines to crunch and serve up the data to services is growing exponentially. You see a LOT of correlation between “Cloud” and “Big Data” but on Big Data and “Hybrid,” where hybrid hosting is the sanest approach to the Big Data Infrastructure pro...
The IoT is changing the way enterprises conduct business. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Eric Hoffman, Vice President at EastBanc Technologies, discussed how businesses can gain an edge over competitors by empowering consumers to take control through IoT.

We all know the latest numbers: Gartner, Inc. forecasts that 6.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2016, up 30 percent from last year, and will reach 20.8 billion by 2020. We're rapidly approaching a data production of 40 zettabytes a day – more than we can every physically store, and exabytes and yottabytes are just around the corner. For many that’s a good sign, as data has been proven to equal money – IF it’s ingested, integrated, and analyzed fast enough. Without real-ti...
I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

Unless your company can spend a lot of money on new technology, re-engineering your environment and hiring a comprehensive cybersecurity team, you will most likely move to the cloud or seek external service partnerships. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Darren Guccione, CEO of Keeper Security, revealed what you need to know when it comes to encryption in the cloud.
We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected. Wearables open new pathways that facilitate the tracking, sharing and storing of consumers’ personal health, location and daily activity data. Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...
