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.

TechCrunch reported that "Berlin-based relayr, maker of the WunderBar, an Internet of Things (IoT) hardware dev kit which resembles a chunky chocolate bar, has closed a $2.3 million seed round, from unnamed U.S. and Switzerland-based investors. The startup had previously raised a €250,000 friend and family round, and had been on track to close a €500,000 seed earlier this year — but received a higher funding offer from a different set of investors, which is the $2.3M round it’s reporting."
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. Over the summer Gartner released its much anticipated annual Hype Cycle report and the big news is that Internet of Things has now replaced Big Data as the most hyped technology. Indeed, we're hearing more and more about this fascinating new technological paradigm. Every other IT news item seems to be about IoT and its implications on the future of digital busines...

Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have s...
The Internet of Things needs an entirely new security model, or does it? Can we save some old and tested controls for the latest emerging and different technology environments? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, will review hands-on lessons with IoT devices and reveal privacy options and a new risk balance you might not expect.
IoT is still a vague buzzword for many people. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kavis, Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Partners, will discuss the business value of IoT that goes far beyond the general public's perception that IoT is all about wearables and home consumer services. The presentation will also discuss how IoT is perceived by investors and how venture capitalist access this space. Other topics to discuss are barriers to success, what is new, what is old, and what the future may hold.
