iCOM UI Architecture
Our team met those who sell, service, and use the Liebert cooling equipment in the datacenter on a daily basis. I used insights that were gained to create 4 personas that conveyed the goals, frustrations and daily activities of these users.
Identifying these user goals ensures that the new iCOM design will meet the needs of those who use it.
Meet Isabell, Bob, Oliver, and Mahir. They represent the key iCOM users in the
Datacenter Cooling space.
iCOM Elements & Themes
UX Elements and Themes were used to trace the UI design to the affinity user data. The use of Elements and themes build a common language to communicate the needs of the user.
