Five Key Elements of UX Fundamentals

Whether you know what UX is and the fundamentals of it, or just like any other person confused between UI and UX, we will get it all covered here. Most of us have heard the terms UI/UX together only, and it’s pretty obvious to get confused between the two. Here we will cover all fundamental information to get clear insights into UX.  

What is UX? 

Defining UX, “User Experience” refers to how people interact with any product. 

UX design is the process of creating products (digital or physical) that are practical and usable. Creating an enhanced experience for the user and making the product accessible is all about user experience. 

Key Principles of UX 

There are various UX principles we need to keep in mind while delivering any product, but you can internalize a handful of key ideas and apply them to your designs. Below are key principles that may help in your product user experience. 

Empathy

First and foremost is creating empathic designs. With empathy, designers can put themselves into users’ shoes, what problems they are facing and in need of solutions to that in their routine.  

Empathy

Accessibility

The other most crucial element is accessibility. Since we design products for people, Our product must be capable of being used by as many people as possible. Designing with accessibility in mind enables people to perceive, comprehend, interact with, and contribute to the web. 

Usability 

No matter how aesthetically pleasing your design looks, it won’t help users get a magnifying experience till it’s easy to understand and use. A big part of UX design is to make services and products that are simple to use for people of all ages, abilities, and groups.  

Consistency 

Users expect products to share some similarities with other products they have used in the past; this makes it easy for them to get familiar with the new product without any additional learning costs.   

Validation and confirmation 

Validation is an important part of the UX process. Preventing errors should be the key goal of any designer. Any inputs that the website is taking from users such as form fields or OTP in payment gateways, captcha needs to be validated and confirmed.  

Conclusion 

Keeping these five – Empathy, Accessibility, Usability, Consistency, and, Validation & Confirmation in mind, a seamless experience can be offered to the users with the designed product/service. We at ContCentric, believe in designing a digital transformation solution that can prove to provide a world-class experience to the users throughout the journey. Reach out to us today.   

Future-Proof Your Business: A Robust & Secure Cloud-Based Solution

Changing times leading to evolving technologies

The idea about future-proofing your business has to be considered hand-in-hand while still gearing up with the digital transformation initiatives. There has never been a more urgent need to future-proof your business because of the digital disruptions and unprecedented times.  

Though the global giants have already been on the path of digitization for more than a decade, there has continually been an evolution in the business processes and business landscape. Today, enterprises across industries understand the humongous benefits of digitization. Leaders around the world believe that there is no choice but to digitize. 

Yet more evolution and robust digital initiatives are a must in order for organizations to be future-ready in these disrupting times. Now, when disruption is a new reality, resilient and antifragile solutions are essential for business continuity.  

Technological solutions have helped many industries to carry on as usual during the covid 19 pandemic. In order to combat such uncertain times having understood the significance of the technological implementations, a business’s IT budget has increased manyfold, only to get back higher returns as well as in short order.  

Below are the challenges enterprises face in their journey toward digital transformation, which isn’t static and continually evolving. The challenges mentioned below if kept in mind to prepare a roadmap would future-proof the business. 

Critical challenges digital leaders face in adopting advanced technology 

  • The biggest hindrance in the digital transformation journey is legacy infrastructure. To find a solution flexible enough that can integrate with legacy systems. To decide upon exact infrastructure needs while keeping mobile-first and cloud-first approach 
  • Modernizing technology for better deployment
    • To find a secure, open-platform cloud solution supplemented with disaster recovery and security 
    • And, a solution that can manage and analyze structured as well as unstructured data 
  • To design a robust cloud strategy and data & analytics strategy 

The Three Pillars to Future-Proof Your Business

In 2022, the three bases to back the organization to be future-ready are –  

  • Cloud  
  • Cutting-edge technologies like AI, ML, IoT 
  • Advanced Analytics 

Data is increasing at an unprecedented rate. This digital era brings the challenge to hone the technological skills to house the data, process it, and analyze it in order to make efficient decisions making, and optimize the business processes. Cloud computing proves to be an innovative, highly scalable, and secure solution.  

Everyone is producing so much content today, besides enterprises already have massive amounts of legacy data. It is definitely not the case with every enterprise to inculcate on-premise/private data centers. Whereas the economy is shifting towards the public cloud which is a cost-efficient, highly reliable, and future-proof option.  

With inappropriate infrastructure support, businesses are able to analyze only 2% of the data. 

Adopting cloud services is a new normal 

Cloud adoption can help businesses –  

  • Accelerate time-to-market 
  • Reduce infrastructure responsibility 
  • Ensure business continuity

B2B eCommerce and its Customer Journey 

With B2B eCommerce, manufacturers, distributors, and wholesalers all perform browsing and ordering of products online. With digitalization across industries for a bit now, enterprises had begun inching towards it, but only pandemic could challenge them accelerate their digital transformation.  

I could not resist adding a joke on digital transformation here: who brought digital transformation to your organization? CEO, CTO, or Coronavirus just a bit of a jolly! 

As the wheel turns and B2B eCommerce experiences ever-increasing global growth, more enterprises have come to realize the perks of digital transformation. B2B eCommerce does not only drive stronger revenue but also increases efficiency and productivity.

Businesses operate in an ecosystem with suppliers, dealers, partners that are involved in the end-to-end customer journey. B2B customer journeys are comparatively long and complex. Being able to map and respond to each touchpoint of an entire customer journey is the only aim of organizations to be potentially rich with digitalization.  

It ideally comprises of a prospect happening to learn about your brand, browsing the products, deciding on to make the purchase that is, solution exploration and requirements building, going through the purchase points and process, to finally making the payment. This further leads to the post-purchase journey of retention and growth.  

Let us read along to learn about how leveraging data and analytics does DXP benefits B2B Commerce. 

Importance of B2B customer experience 

Customer experiences are incredibly valuable, the ones reflecting B2C customer journey, also more complex one, B2B customer journey. 

B2B customer relationships are long-term, unlike B2C, hence offering world-class experiences to customers can help checkmate a lot of competition. 

According to research from Avionos, 87% of B2B buyers will pay more for a supplier with an excellent digital commerce portal. And, 90% of B2B buyers will turn to a competitor if a supplier’s digital channel can’t keep up with their needs. 

Customer experiences all along the journey across every touchpoint are beyond crucial amid this digital business landscape and higher competition. Customer demands have never been greater, they interact with brands across multiple channels through various touchpoints. Consistency in customer experience becomes important here and with DXP we can offer omnichannel experiences.

Disable a Site in Liferay and Display a Static Page Through Nginx

In our case, multiple sites are hosted on a single app server and web server(Nginx). The requirement was to disable one of the sites, and a result of hitting the disabled site should be a custom page displayed with the message that the site is unavailable.

For doing this, there are three actions to be performed:

  • Disable the app from the app server
  • Avoid it from hitting the app server form the web server
  • Display a custom static HTML page instead of the default nginx page.

To disable the site:

Significance of Consistent Customer Experience

Digitalization in commerce has propelled eCommerce to contribute the most to sustaining the momentum of the world’s economy today. Reaching customers through digital touchpoints like websites, mobile applications, and multiple others has become a dire need. But what is more important do you know? Being able to offer consistent experiences to customers through all touchpoints. 

Customer Experience is defined as the way the customer feels during all his interactions with the business/company. Customer interactions with the organizational landscape are continually changing, with the rise in digital transformation across the industries. 

Customers switch across multiple platforms during their purchase journey before making the final payment. For instance, a customer might start his purchase cycle with the web platform, and would switch to a phone because of certain interruptions, and might end his journey with a tablet or other devices.

Business presence on multiple channels has brought difficulty in offering a consistent customer experience 

Businesses have created their digital presence in multiple channels to expand their sales and increase their engagement with stakeholders included/customers. Indubitably, this digital transformation move brought many positive changes in organizations but to continually meet the ever-changing customer demands we need to bring constant innovations in our digital solutions. Above all, customer experience is incredibly valuable.
