Microsoft is setting a new standard of design and cross-platform experience with the advent of Windows 8. We believe companies that are serious about reaching the broadest audience with their applications must now have a plan for Windows 8.
Recently, we partnered with Microsoft to design a Windows 8 expense reporting application for use within Microsoft. This turned out to be an excellent case study in creating an enterprise application with a Metro design, so this week we were invited to share our lessons learned on a recent Channel 9 program.
Last month we announced a new suite of services to help product managers and developers in the enterprise and consumer applications space with strategy, user experience design, rapid prototyping and development of applications for Windows 8. The response we got was very promising, confirming our bet that, while Windows 8 may not be an "iPad killer", it certainly deserves consideration by any teams with a mobile application intended for broad use.
