IBM App Connect

Automating workflows & connecting apps.

What is it?

IBM App Connect is a new offering within IBM Cloud Integration that links and moves data between APIs to create automated workflows. It offers a personal and professional package, depending on usage. The product is still in early release and may be protected under an NDA at the time of this post.

My role

I was a front-end developer working with a team of designers and engineers. I worked with the design team to ensure a feasible solution that meets user needs and build wireframes and coded prototypes for usability testing. I translated design decisions to the engineering team and communicate goals and tasks across the board so that deliverables are completed on a timely manner.

Prototyping interactions to bridge the gap between design and engineering on an enterprise scale.

1

Use Design Thinking techniques to define problem and understand technical requirements.

2

Wireframe, concept and use Codepen to build multiple variations of potential solutions, then test.

3

After iterating and testing is complete work closely with engineering to implement and maintain.

It was a collaboration of my team of Researchers, UX Designers, Visual Designers, and Front End Developers. We used design thinking techniques to understand user pain points and develop a solution using 'The Loop' - a continuous delivery model of Observe, Reflect,and Make.

An enterprise-scale marketing strategy.

Standing out from the crowd.

In addition to my product work, as part of a product re-brand we built our own marketing website to sit outside the IBM Marketplace. I was the main Front End Developer behind this due to my background in Wordpress and I helped design, architect and build the site that would serve as the face of our product.

So, that was IBM App Connect.
