AZURE BLOCKCHAIN WORKBENCH
Workbench is an enterprise level application. It leverages Azure services to create the scaffolding needed to deploy private blockchains. These services reduce development time from months to minutes.
Workbench was one of the top ten featured products at the Microsoft Build Conference in 2018.
UX DESIGN LEAD
I took the Workbench UI from inception to launch in seven months.
It was an agile process that involved a high degree of ambiguity and changing priorities.
I collaborated across teams that included PM's, engineers, graphic designers, and content strategy.
My work touched every phase of the design process from whiteboards to high-fidelity prototypes.
Our PM’s worked with private preview customers for over a year, including Starbucks, 3M, and Nestle. Once their private blockchain had deployed, our customers required an out of the box UI.
The UI needed to be dynamic to accommodate smart contracts.
It also needed to allow users to conduct transactions and manage members.
I did several rounds of user flows, white boards, wireframes, and prototypes.
Throughout the process I encouraged feedback from each team member.
This regular communication ensured everyone had input from an early start. It kept us agile.
It also helped us drill down to the simplest solution for the user.
