UX and Fintech: The road ahead

A few months ago, I had the privilege to look at and analyze a trading application, for purposes of feature listing and estimation. Now, it is not uncommon for financial applications to sport all those buttons, sliders and boxes that give the user a feature-rich end product. I also distinctly remember one of the executives iterating proudly about the host of features that their platform was able to provide. Only problem: they were bleeding customers. Some startup was able to dismount their platform from the top user-base position and they were doing it with seeming effortlessness.

AR-Assisted Software Development

Software development has always been the meeting point for technology enthusiasts and process experts who endlessly opine about the best ways to go about it. Paradigms, methodologies and techniques have changed over the years. Whether it is the Kanban system or Aspect Oriented Programming, it all comes down to achieving more efficiency and meeting that often elusive deadline with a robust product.

The title itself is a bit pretentious. As if being agile today is some sort of dilution, and we need to aim for true agility by virtue of its slightly better sounding name (my opinion of course). The concept of agility stems from the need to have teams that are better poised to tackle changing requirements. It also propounds of making the customer’s life better by delivering incrementally, with more transparency than the well maligned big bang of the waterfall model.

Algorithmic Content Creation for Creating Quizzes, Assignments

In the last blog we saw that algorithmic trading can open new doors in the world of e-Learning. The content can springboard into existence quickly and can be maneuvered to achieve near perfect refinement. The learning content takes better shape each time and the software can adjust the parameters of skill-level and demographic to sculpt this shape.

Algorithmic Content Creation

Content creation has always been of the touchier subjects for organizations that are flexing up to enter into an endeavor of training themselves. What is the best approach to do it? Numerous papers, articles, thought-leadership-content and other attractive sounding content has been created on the art of creating content. The mild circularity of the statement aside, the arguments are far from being decisive. The age-group, cultural preferences, skill-levels, target purpose are various parameters that are weighed, rationed and endlessly debated about before not arriving to any concrete conclusion.

The best of Instruction Designers of course know how to tailor their courses well enough to optimally fit over the largest group that you would want to train. But even that best case scenario is tough to achieve. With the growth of skill mobility, you have all the aforementioned variables fluidly change within a single learning group. The result? For one training session on say, the HR policy of the organization, even if you restrict the participants to interaction designers only, you may still have multiple age-groups, radically different cultural preferences and different specialties. The result? If your training speaks about the life insurance perks but not the attractive restaurant coupons, the younger age-group may mysteriously fall sick for the next few sessions. It is in fact a headache to create content that fits well with everyone and achieves the elusive purpose of disseminating knowledge.
