10 According to his friends, what color did Steve Jobs’ skin appear to have at times and why? Steve Jobs Lore #1

11 Designing & Developing MicroStrategy iPad Apps

12 From Grids, Graphs and SQL

13 To Dashboards and Visualizations

14 To Designing Apps for the iPad – Scenes and Screens

15 The Corner of Technology Street and Liberal Arts Street  Competing against Angry Birds, Tinytower and other well designed Apps  Storyline  User input - tactile, gestures  Device specific constraints  Mobility  Security  Apple Human Interface Design and Data Visualization Principles  Executive Driven Projects

16  Keeping the background and frame in a graph transparent should be avoided since it appears black on iPhone due to the default black background  The following graph types are not supported in iPad – Gantt Chart, Funnel, Graph, Pareto Chart, Histogram, Hi-Lo Stock Chart  Pie Graph should be used at the place of comparisons where number of elements is less than or equal to five for more than that horizontal sorted bar graphs can be used  Grids can be used in situations where number of elements is less than 10 so that all the data can be see on the screen at a time and, for more than that, line graphs can be useful Sample From The Guide iPad Design Guidelines (1 of 4)

17  Graph reports present data visually in a style such as a bar, line, or pie graph.  To view tooltips to explain parts of a graph - Tap and hold on the screen  To zoom in/out - Perform a pinch on the center of the screen or double-tap the center of the screen to switch between a zoomed-in view and a zoomed-out view. Sample From The Guide iPad Design Guidelines (2 of 4)

18 Flash Widget Substitute in / MicrochartsAvailable in iPad RSS ReaderAvailable in iPhone Waterfall Thresholding in Graph Weighted List Viewer Grid with thresholding on metrics Sample From The Guide iPad Design Guidelines (3 of 4)

19 Flash Widget Substitute in / Time Series Slider Available Graph Matrix Line/Area Graph Interactive Stacked Graph MediaLink to Video Sample From The Guide iPad Design Guidelines (4 of 4)

20 Key Considerations when Designing iPad Apps

21 Steve Jobs Lore #2 Why didn’t Steve Jobs and his wife, Laurene have a sofa in their home after eight years of living in their home?

22  Expert on Data Visualization Best Practices and Apple Human Interface Design Guidelines  Mobile and MicroStrategy Experience  Guide selection of appropriate controls/widgets during the design phase  Create any new images/icons needed for the App  Create the App Color Palette  Create Mobile “Refined” App Mockup which defines the final look and feel #1 - Use a Data Visualization Expert

23 Created by a Developer/BA

24 Expanded KPI Grid Shaded Trend Graphs instead of Horizontal Bar Reduced size of map Addl screen space – more information More appealing color palette After DV Expert

25 #2 – You are Gathering Requirements for an App – not just a set of Reports

26 #3 - Show Them What They’ll Get – Building a Demo

27 Building the Demo  Ingredients  Knowledge of your business and application  Some PowerPoint skills  MicroStrategy Web  Screen capture tools  Video tools like Captivate  Templates  A Sample Video A Sample Video

28 Steve Jobs Lore #3 What employee number was Steve Jobs at Apple?

29 Requirements Gathering and Analysis App Storyboarding Initial App Mockup Refined Mockup Identify Datasets Data Sets Test Application Develop Subsequent Screens Regression Test Color Palette & Branding Template & Landing Page Design All Screens Final Application Requirements App Storyboarding Iterative QA Deployment Agile Build Process #4 - Involve Your Humans Often 1 – Storyboard Review 2 – UI Prototype Review 3 – 1 st Cut Dev 4 – Selected Release

30 App Storyboard

31 #5 - Think about Your Test Strategy Upfront  Need to address many new variables specific to Mobile Development  User interface is no longer a GUI. It is a NUI (Natural User Interface) with tactile features that need to be tested – “finger” testing  Navigation – A lot of navigation enabled on a smaller screen  Mobile Apps are prone to interruptions, such as incoming calls, or switching to other applications. All such use cases need to be thoroughly tested.  The mobile environment offers less memory and processing power  Network performance  Security

32 Our Approach for Test Cases  Usability Test Cases  iPad Gesture Testing  Interruption Handling  Network  Restore Sessions

33 Our Program

34 Key Attributes  The importance of a Data Visualization Expert  Key considerations when gathering requirements  Show your users how the app will look before doing any development – use our Guide  Involve humans often  Think about your testing strategy up front

35 Requirements Gathering and Analysis App Storyboarding Initial App Mockup Refined Mockup Identify Datasets Data Sets Test Application Develop Subsequent Screens Regression Test Color Palette & Branding Template & Landing Page Design All Screens Final Application Requirements App Storyboarding Iterative QA Deployment Agile Build Process Our Approach

36 Our Mobile (iPad) Design and Development Program KEY ARTIFACTS  Mobile App Requirements Questionnaire  App Storyboarding Guidelines  Mobile App Design Templates  App Development Checklist  Test Case Document  Mobile Configuration and Deployment Guide TEAM  Onsite Project Lead  Offshore DV Expert  Offshore Project Lead  Offshore Developer  Offshore Data Quality Analyst
