Actuate Corporation (NASDAQ: BIRT), The BIRT Company™ and the leader in personalized analytics and insights, today announced its participation in a complimentary SD Times webcast entitled, “5 Best Practices for Designing Data-Driven Apps.” Allen Bonde, Vice President of Product Marketing and Innovation at Actuate, will present on designing highly-scalable, personalized applications for today’s data consumers.
Data-driven customer applications have become major growth engines for the worldwide software market. Forrester Research predicts that smart computing software will become a $48 billion market this year.
IDC has proclaimed that 2014 will be the year of data-driven marketing and sales. Despite the fact that we are becoming increasingly surrounded by data-driven devices, designing compelling data-driven experiences – especially for customer facing applications made for both large amounts of data and of users – remains a challenge.
During this webcast, Bonde will address the importance of an emerging set of design principles inspired by consumer devices. These insights provide a blueprint for delivering apps that inform, connect and motivate end-users. Specifically, Bonde will explain:
- Why data is becoming a differentiator in customer facing applications
- Why Big Data and mobile adoption create new challenges for developers
- How the "Small Data" design philosophy can drive focus and agility
- What emerging best practices offer a guide for creating compelling, high-scale data-driven applications and solutions
