It takes at least 4 input-required steps and 5 different interfaces to run a single Db2 command using the existing software product for IBM mainframe operating systems. Because the product has an outdated user interface and offers minimal assistance, novice database administrators experience a steep learning curve when learning how to work with the command processor.
The new design revolves around a modern user interface with features catered toward both expert and novice database administrators. Users have access to everything on one screen and the ability to choose to use certain tools depending on their level of expertise with writing Db2 commands.
UX Design Intern
More than 70% of the world's IT workload still runs on legacy platforms, but schools are no longer teaching engineers how to use these older systems. Rocket Software, an international technology company and major IBM partner, focuses on innovating enterprise system software to help customers continue to thrive in a fast-paced world of new technological developments.
As the second UX design intern in the newly-formed UX team at Rocket Software, I was given the opportunity to learn about and provide feedback for many projects and products throughout the company. My main project was focused on redesigning the Db2 command line processor for database administrators. Since my work is under a NDA, I will focus mainly on achievements from my experience:
An AR mobile service to re-imagine your luxurious space
An interactive kiosk to take the shuttle system to the next level
