Solution fit and flexibility: why Falkonry product teams invest time in redesigning their UI
A series on product improvements at Falkonry – Part 1
By Jeegar Shah – Sr. Director Products, Falkonry
When designing a complex product that has all the bells and whistles under the hood, it is imperative that the user experience be all the more simplistic, streamlined and intuitive.
As any product evolves to encompass new ideas and optimizations, there is a tendency to display the prowess of your algorithmic horsepower to your users by giving them YAF (Yet Another Feature). This is all dandy for developers that have an exploding cache of Github repos and code checkins as they try their one upmanship on their colleagues with cumulative pull requests. But this is often a nightmare for customers who are asymptotically approaching their steady state of product usage and now have to deal with YAF – when they never really asked for one.
At Falkonry, our overarching objective is solution fit and flexibility. We believe that the promise of bringing OT (Operations Technology) efficiency lies in the ability to empower subject matter experts (SMEs) with the tools to make timely and effective decisions. A YAF may exactly help you achieve the opposite. Falkonry is committed to making AI-based pattern recognition an easy-to-incorporate component of any operations-oriented solution. With the addition of every algorithmic richness and IP, we enforce a mindset of looking back at our footsteps to remind us of the silhouette of an army of SME’s that will be following the same steps and pausing every so often to ask each other the question “Did we just throw a YAF?”
