One response to “Five principles of sexy enterprise software”

  1. Aad 't Hart

    Michael,

    I absolutely agree with the points you mention, although I would add ‘Make the apps fun’. However the real challenge lays in the priorities that are given to the different components. In Enterprise software there are always many requests for additional functionality (If we had ‘abc’ we could cos x extra deals). It’s very hard to ignore and sometimes move away from the functionality and take the experience as an attention point. Currently decisions are functionality driven and it takes time to shift this to user driven decisions, but there is hope! Further consumerization will drive enterprise software closer to the user to stay competitive.
