  5. @propelics www.propelics.com 5 WHAT IS RAPID PROTOTYPING AND WHY SHOULD

  6. @propelics www.propelics.com 6 RAPID PROTOTYPING • Work quickly through iterations

    of design, navigation, user experience, and palette • Allows you to bring visualization to your ideas • Quickly bring validity (or not) to process transformation
  7. @propelics www.propelics.com 7 WHERE SHOULD YOU START?

  8. @propelics www.propelics.com 8 DEFINE AN INNOVATION POSTURE • Important to

    identify where to start • Each point on this maturity stack has benefit – what works for your organization? • Amount & rate of process change • End-user readiness • Not every app can be (or should be) transformative • Understand that there is no “gold standard” for enterprise mobility
  9. @propelics www.propelics.com 9 DEFINE A MOBILE APP ROADMAP • Identify

    hotspots through ideation and art of the possible sessions • Align ideas to business drivers, organizational readiness, and ease of implementation • Stack rank app candidates by overall viability score • Choose a top app candidate for rapid prototyping
  10. @propelics www.propelics.com 10 START WITH A DAY IN THE LIFE

    What is it? Basically stalking. Follow potential app users (employees, partners, etc.) around as they complete their daily tasks. A few examples: • Accompany drivers on a delivery route • Shadow sales people as they visit prospects and customers • Work in a retail store, stocking, auditing & answering customer questions • Visit oil fields with lease operators and technicians
  11. @propelics www.propelics.com 11 APP SCOPING & FUNCTIONALITY IDENTIFICATION Day in

    the Life results + process ideation + leadership viewpoint + right user participation + honesty of outcome
  12. @propelics www.propelics.com 12 PROTOTYPE IDENTIFICATION • Prototype Should Focus on

    Highly-Ranked Functionality • Functionality that maximizes business benefit • Fosters innovation • Possesses High-Readiness in process, data, and implementation • Makes the scenario “real”

  21. @propelics www.propelics.com 21 BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND •

    Build prototype in no more than 2 weeks and distribute to end users • Semi-functional prototypes give users a feel for actual navigation and interaction • Gather feedback from key constituents, discover gaps and adjust before you start development
  22. @propelics www.propelics.com 22 LEVERAGE AXWAY TITANIUM • Define a happy

    path • Use a combination of screen previews and native UI elements • Hardcode known use cases (Login) • Code key elements for the success of the app • Explore navigation patterns • Use Local Notifications • Package app for distribution in your internal App Store • Create foundation for app development (not throw-away)
  23. @propelics www.propelics.com 23 TECHNICAL CONSIDERATIONS • Current and future state

    data sources, backend process integration, and integration methods • Data design (services design, data transformation, caching) • Discuss platform choices: iOS, Android, and Windows 10 • Application architecture options and decisions to support known functionality • Network infrastructure and limitations • Security & authentication considerations • Proof of concept
