THE TIME IS NOW! A CALL TO ACTION FROM THE USER EXPERIENCE COMMITTEE
User Experience (UX) is an umbrella term for the multi-disciplinary user-centered approach to the design and development of interactive systems. This includes usability, human factors, accessibility, interaction design, information architecture, navigation, technical communications, visual design, and related disciplines. The UX approach ensures that all human interaction with a system is designed to give that person a positive user experience. The UX approach is inclusive considering, end-users, persons with disabilities, installers, identity providers, relying parties, system administrators, and all other humans who may interact with any part of the Identity Ecosystem. For the Identity Ecosystem to be successfully adopted, the user experience for all these groups must be positive. Thus, the User Experience Committee was established to ensure that the Identity Ecosystem technologies and solutions adopt the principles of usability to facilitate all humans who interact with the Ecosystem.
