Enterprise UX problems are uniquely wicked ones, with overwhelming challenges of scale, complexity, and distributed decision-making, all intertwined with organizational behavior. Rather than covering basic UX skills, Enterprise UX provides inspiration and models of success from leading organizations like IBM, GE, Salesforce, 18F, and SAP. We cover how UX is practiced in leading enterprises, and how in turn UX is changing the way those enterprises work.
If you believe that enterprise experiences should offer the same degree of humanity, beauty, and delight that people have come to expect from consumer experiences, please be a part of the Enterprise UX conference.
Aside from its unique focus on helping designers and researchers impact enterprises, our content is simply unmatched in quality. We rely heavily on user research to learn about the challenges that you care about. Our program emphasizes those themes over celebrity speakers. We painstakingly curate our speaker roster to ensure diverse perspectives and experiences (learn more about our approach here). And we require our speakers to prepare their presentations months in advance.
Our great content comes in a variety of formats: keynotes, talks, and our unique Enterprise Storytelling Session, as well as four workshops. Don’t worry about taking notes, just enjoy the sessions—we’ll give you access to sketchnotes, tripnotes, and video recordings of the main conference program within about week after the conference wraps up.
We’ll provide you with plenty of other opportunities to learn and have fun—ranging from topic tables, an active Slack channel, and a mentoring booth to a reception, happy hour, a karaoke evening, and a walking tour of San Francisco.
Need some help convincing the person upstairs that enterprise user experience design is vital? We’ve got you covered.
Enterprise UX 2018 is for people who care about delivering great enterprise experiences—whether they work within an enterprise or for an enterprise software vendor.
That means UX team leaders and mid- and senior-level UX practitioners (including information architects, interaction designers, content strategists, and other user experience professionals) who are charged with researching and designing enterprise software and web sites. (In fact, Enterprise UX attendees are perhaps the most senior that you’ll find at any UX conference.)
It also means product managers who know that research and design lead to user adoption and give their products a competitive edge. And it means engineers, developers, marketers, and senior decision-makers whose organizations stand to benefit when their employees and customers enjoy better experiences.
“Wonderful event—so much more appropriate and well targeted to the specific needs I face daily than any other UX conference I’ve attended.”
