NYC UPA presents:
Designing Outcomes for Usability: The Future of User Experience & Analytics
a presentation by Marko Hurst, Director of User Experience at Colangelo.
Even as the pace of society, business, and the Internet continue to increase, many budgets and time lines continue to decrease. To compound this issue, there is a serious disconnect between business goals, user goals, and what visitors actually do on your site. UX practitioners need a simple and efficient way to reconcile these diverse needs while taking action on their data.
Join us to learn about a new method for incorporating quantitative data such as web analytics and business intelligence into your qualitative user experience deliverables: personas, wireframes, and more. This presentation will include discussions of online business models, feedback loops for ensuring cross-discipline collaboration, and ongoing revisions.
