🟢 *** Enterprise UX - Secrets Revealed!
________________________________________________________________
Consumer UX and Enterprise UX are not the same. Each come with their own unique upsides and downsides. Enterprise UX is more than user’s needs – it's changing the way you look at tools and pieces of software your company uses.

What do you think of when you hear the term Enterprise UX? Designing corporate Human Resources (HR) systems or intranets? Many articles and books for UX professionals focus on designing Web sites and mobile applications for consumers.

But what about the silent majority of users in the workplace who are trying to get their job done? Many of them think of enterprise software as the generally sub-par tools that companies force them to use.

🟢 ***Where Can Enterprise UX Make a Difference?
Perhaps the better question is: where can’t enterprise UX make a difference? Enterprise software is everywhere—often in places you might not realize.

Our speaker Joel Miller, having spent a career engaged in Enterprise UX, thinks it’s time to offer a peek into this uniquely challenging and rewarding area of UX specialization.
