Nowadays most of the web applications are developed as Rich Internet Applications (RIA) which is the next generation of internet based applications delivering fast performance along with enhanced user experience. In view of this Cognizant Technology wanted to design a web portal to showcase RIA capabilities of their products to their clients. This was to be supervised by Content and Design Services (C&DS) wing of Cognizant Technology that addresses the user interface design needs across various projects. They are experts in GUI and Usability. The projection of this portal was considered to be a “Creative Component of Strong Technology Backbone of Cognizant Technology Solutions”.
My diploma project focused on the design of this portal. Presently showcasing of projects to the clients is done through presentations through which it is not possible to reach a wider clientele base. The client wished to know the process followed by the design team of Cognizant Technology so as to get the feel of the team and understand their activities they are involved in. The portal was designed to serve as a platform for Cognizant’s associates to express their views, share links or to know about the events happening in the city related to RIA.
The design interventions for the web portal looked at branding RIA and positioning Cognizant Technology as a frontrunner in RIA design and implementation. The portal had to enable client interaction with stakeholders. Shared spaces were created to encourage discussions, weekly update of the happenings and the events at the office for promoting team collaborations. It was also proposed to have a virtual assistant to guide the client through common queries and presentations. This was a good professional learning experience for me.
