Infragistics Debuts Indigo Studio

Software Interaction Design Tool Enables Designers and Developers to Create Rich, Interactive UI Prototypes

CRANBURY, N.J. and UXBRIDGE, England, Nov. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Infragistics, a leading user experience and software design company, today debuts Indigo Studio, a software interaction design tool that empowers designers and developers alike to design user interface (UI) prototypes that explore and illustrate rich, interactive experiences, without writing a line of code.

Unlike other UI design tools in the market today, designing interactions is at the heart of Indigo Studio. Other tools only focus on static UI mockups, with basic linking capabilities, or require designers to jump through hoops to add more than simple links. In Indigo Studio, every element can be made interactive with the click of a button, and the changes a designer makes can easily be animated to design rich transitions. The ability to annotate designs and share the best designs with team members and key stakeholders are also key features of Indigo Studio.

"The UX design process and software development is at the heart of our culture and flows throughout our company, from our product teams who've developed our leading UI components to our Services team who are the global experts in user experience," said Dean Guida, CEO of Infragistics. "Providing Indigo Studio to the market is strategic to completing our vision of helping companies build great digital experiences and promoting good design and user experience."

This debut release of Indigo Studio is available free of charge. By embedding and facilitating interaction design best practices, Indigo Studio brings professionals' visions to life on the web, desktop and mobile devices.

Starting with only an idea or concept, Indigo Studio customers can easily design UIs with the more than 21 built-in interactive controls, 300 searchable icons, common and curve-based shapes and vector-based stencils. The 'clutter-free' Indigo Studio UI minimizes distracting details and increases the prototyping process.

Incorporating real-world context into designs can be easily accomplished with Indigo Studio's integrated storyboards. With more than 300 real-world scenes, designers can drag and drop UI design screens directly into any scene.

"Indigo Studio makes it easy for anyone to rapidly design functional, animated UI prototypes that maximize usability and appeal," added Guida. "It promotes design process best practices and enables teams to stay focused on the end users and their stories."

trust and privacy in their ecosystem. Assurance and protection of device identity, secure data encryption and authentication are the key security challenges organizations are trying to address when integrating IoT devices. This holds true for IoT applications in a wide range of industries, for example, healthcare, consumer devices, and manufacturing. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Lancen LaChance, vice president of product management, IoT solutions at GlobalSign, will teach IoT developers how t...
A critical component of any IoT project is the back-end systems that capture data from remote IoT devices and structure it in a way to answer useful questions. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle large data sets, but they are not well suited to many IoT-scale products and the need for real-time insights. At Fuze, we have developed a backend platform as part of our mobility-oriented cloud service that uses Big Data-based approache...
We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected. Wearables open new pathways that facilitate the tracking, sharing and storing of consumers’ personal health, location and daily activity data. Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT's direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
There is an ever-growing explosion of new devices that are connected to the Internet using “cloud” solutions. This rapid growth is creating a massive new demand for efficient access to data. And it’s not just about connecting to that data anymore. This new demand is bringing new issues and challenges and it is important for companies to scale for the coming growth. And with that scaling comes the need for greater security, gathering and data analysis, storage, connectivity and, of course, the...
The IETF draft standard for M2M certificates is a security solution specifically designed for the demanding needs of IoT/M2M applications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Brian Romansky, VP of Strategic Technology at TrustPoint Innovation, will explain how M2M certificates can efficiently enable confidentiality, integrity, and authenticity on highly constrained devices.
So, you bought into the current machine learning craze and went on to collect millions/billions of records from this promising new data source. Now, what do you do with them? Too often, the abundance of data quickly turns into an abundance of problems. How do you extract that "magic essence" from your data without falling into the common pitfalls? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Natalia Ponomareva, Software Engineer at Google, will provide tips on how to be successful in large scale machine lear...
