Design means problem solving—so everyone is a designer. But when it comes to enterprise application design, we need a way to ensure quality, consistency, and efficiency, so that we can scale that much faster.
Design systems are the frameworks that make this possible, including patterns and components that can be styled, customized, and combined to create a consistent look, feel, and experience for your applications—from one element to another, page to page, and across devices.
Learn how your organization can use design systems to create engaging applications at scale:
Create your single source of truth.
When it comes to building and scaling apps across an enterprise, we need a way to maintain standards, with consistent patterns, styles, and processes that streamline the user experience for productivity and delight.
Brand owners and UX designers, rejoice. With a design system, you can finally tackle your design debt, eliminate inconsistencies in your design, streamline your processes, and ultimately scale your design efforts to meet the needs of evolving organizations and customers.Easily create standards that make it easy to do the “right” thing—whatever that means for your unique company. Make it difficult to do the “wrong” or the undesirable thing—something that won’t work for your users. Give your designers and developers the boundaries they need without sacrificing their creative freedom.
Design apps that work the way people do.
The value of good design cannot be overstated. In fact, poor design has a pretty hefty price tag—to the tune of $1 trillion, according to research by CareerFoundry. In addition to avoiding significant costs, good design comes with amazing benefits:
- Get 100% user adoption.
When you ask the right questions and design the right solutions, people actually want to use your apps.
- Build user loyalty that stands the test of time.
Well-designed apps keep people coming back—even when things go wrong. When users are loyal, you get feedback, engagement, evangelism, and continuous ROI.
- Accelerate productivity and efficiency.
When your app is so easy to use that it requires no training, you can work, connect, and innovate faster.
