  • Axure Users Meetup, Chicago May 2, 2013 | Axure Planning & LogisticsMobile First changes howorganizations drive theirUX needs.UX Risk: Axure prototypes are gettingmore complex because we need to optimizeUX for 3+ delivery layouts .1. Times They Are a-Changinwhat, again?!
  • Axure Users Meetup, Chicago May 2, 2013 | Axure Planning & LogisticsNew and emerging interaction models fortouch, speech, display, body & brain. Themeaning of UX changes radically.UX Risk: Axure prototypes are limited towhen it comes to simulating experiencesacross multitude of interaction styles.2. Anything Goes
  • Axure Users Meetup, Chicago May 2, 2013 | Axure Planning & LogisticsAxure implementation is a risk for UXteams, especially on complex projects: Skill levels Keeping team in sync Consistency of construction Generating Specs Quality and coverage of annotations3. Axure Scalability

  • Axure Users Meetup, Chicago May 2, 2013 | Axure Planning & Logistics Capture business and functional requirements in a sharedrequirements management tool instead of Word and Excel(the traditional method). Implement a naming convention scheme in Axure toassociate requirements with a corresponding UI element inthe specification.
