What is Innovation?

More Info


Being a company with over 1500 employees, a lot of data is available about people and their day-to-day pursuits, including projects they are working on. Company X has requested to gain more insight into this data, as it is currently scattered over multiple systems. Specifically, they requested to gain insight into which projects have been started around a certain topic, who is involved in these projects, what the status on these projects is and where these projects are carried out inside the company. Company X wants this data represented in a dynamic, scalable and interactive visualisation. To create a product that fulfils the expectations and needs of Company X, a Proof of Concept (PoC) was created. This basic version was used to make sure that Company X and the development team had the same basic idea of the application to be created and was then extended to an Minimal Viable Product (MVP). Having completed this MVP, additional features were implemented. Such features include making the solution generic for different data sources, the ability to filter and search through the data and highlighting/focusing specific data types. In order to ensure that the visualisation can be used instinctively and deliver the information it is meant to, a user study was set up. In this user study, multiple employees of Company X tested the visualisation by completing a set of tasks within the application. By tracking the different results (i.e. number of clicks, time, subjective opinions), the team was able to derive that the application is quite promising, but still had the need for some improvements to explore its full potential.
