White Paper Published By: UserTesting     Published Date: Aug 04, 2016
Could there possibly be a better time to be involved in UX? Brilliant experiences have crept from the fringes of business best practices to front-and-center for many companies throughout the world. Along with this, organizations are taking a more mature approach to collecting and utilizing customer feedback. Many companies are realizing it’s no longer enough to run surveys or user tests a couple of times a year. Instead, they’re working constantly to build a consistent experience across channels and on all devices, and customer feedback is the driving force behind that work.

White Paper Published By: UserTesting     Published Date: Aug 04, 2016
Gathering great user feedback is the cornerstone for building a great product or service. And you know you need to conduct research to get it. But getting started on a new research project—even if you’ve conducted hundreds of studies before—can be complicated. Do you need qualitative or quantitative feedback? What if you only have a wireframe or prototype? Is there a right and a wrong time to conduct a study? What if you need feedback quickly? Do you even have time to conduct a study? Who’s going to do it? There’s a lot to consider, and the pressure is on to deliver results. And I’m willing to bet you don’t have an unlimited amount of time to do this. So we’ll get right to the point. There are a lot of different ways to conduct research. And none of them are created equally. Some work when you’ve got a prototype, while others work best with a finished product.

White Paper Published By: UserTesting     Published Date: Aug 04, 2016
If creating a fantastic user experience were easy, everyone would be doing it. But just one quick search, online purchase, or first-time mobile game experience will prove that’s not the case. The user—and customer— experience is a living, breathing organism that requires constant interaction, understanding, and attention. Several years ago, the idea of building, let alone scaling, a UX team was rare. We were only just beginning to embrace the idea that the user’s experience was important. But there’s no doubt that the companies that have zeroed in on user-centered design are reaping the benefits. Dedicating an entire team to focus on it probably would’ve seemed extravagant and unnecessary back then. But things have changed in the past few years, and it’s becoming harder and harder to ignore the impact of a good (or bad) user experience.

IT decision-makers at most enterprises understand the benefits that the cloud has to offer: increased agility and more predictable budgeting, among others. In many organizations, in fact, “cloud first” has become the mantra when seeking out new software solutions. But often, enterprises are less clear on the specific use cases of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and how providers can help deliver IT capabilities that meet their needs and help them to achieve desired business outcomes.

Workiva commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic ImpactTM study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying Wdesk for Controls Management. The purpose of this study is to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of Wdesk on their organizations and how it can be leveraged to optimize the processes necessary to deliver Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) compliance.

The Own Risk and Solvency Assessment (ORSA) has evolved from a relatively unknown requirement to a present reality, and companies continue to adapt their plans to comply with the mandate. The challenge presented by the ORSA requirement is to develop a process and produce a summary report that closely matches the unique goals, policies, and practices of the insurer, while avoiding a cookie-cutter approach. This challenge is also an opportunity to take a fresh look at the organization’s risk protocols, deployment of capital, and ERM-related computer systems, perhaps leading to meaningful changes or simply confirming the adequacy of the current practices. This paper provides tips to facilitate the process, avoid fundamental mistakes, and prepare the summary report efficiently.
