The big winners in the world of online commerce are those that make the quality of the user experience (UX) the centerpiece of their overall online strategy.
In the current economic climate IT managers are under continuous pressure to justify spending time and money on user experience research and design. What does that mean to developers, architects, business users, and value?
At the 8th International AJAXWorld RIA Conference & Expo in San Francisco this September, the Conference Theme is "Good User Experiences Mean Good Business" - there will be keynotes, General Sessions, breakout sessions, and industry panels that explore and explain how simple, rich interfaces that don’t get in the way of the user's experience but enhance it are increasingly becoming tied to value creation, profitability and staying-power in the marketplace.
IT professionals of every stripe will come away with an enhanced understanding of what it takes to effectively evaluate, design and build on-line experiences that are compelling, usable, and profitable. Our organizing principle is that attending delegates should leave the Conference with abundant resources, ideas and examples they can apply immediately to leveraging the technologies they see on display and hear under discussion.
Business-Critical Topics That Will Be Addressed September 22-23 in San Francisco Include:
Enterprise-Level RIAs: How do Rich Internet Applications and approaches help an enterprise
make money? What’s the business downside of not AJAXifying my Website or business application?
Architectural Issues: Open source or closed source? Cloud-assisted or cloud-independent? What back-end
suits what front-end?
Business Collaboration Tools: What’s the relevance of Facebook to the enterprise? How are simple, rich
interfaces more usually associated with the consumer space making their way into businesses and internal
applications and why?
Rich-Web Case Studies: Who already uses rich-web technologies in what verticals and how? We bring
you sessions from Health, Manufacturing, Finance, Travel, Government, Retail, Insurance, Transportation, and
Real-Time Web: How can the browser enjoy the first citizenry of network communications that has long been enjoyed by desktop applications?
