Once again we have drawn Trends from right across
all of Fjord’s team – business designers, interaction
and visual designers, project managers, business
development, marketing, HR, IT and finance too. Our
Trends focus on issues we expect to tackle in the
coming year, as they affect design, users, organizations
and society. This year we have selected nine. We hope
they will inform the strategic and design decisions that
our clients and we take every day.

THE IMPACT OF DIGITAL
ON THE REAL WORLD IS
COMING INTO FOCUS
Software is now becoming embedded in the environment
very quickly, in ways that we will all be witnessing and
talking about. At the same time, people are also going
back into the front line of the interface itself.
MAGIC IS NOW
EXPECTED
Maybe it’s the result of a generation weaned on Harry
Potter, but Gen Y is hard to surprise; they confidently
expect services to become more magical. For some
services, it’s by guessing your intent or making boring
transactional stuff disappear. If you can conjure with skill,
you can differentiate.
In 2015, successful organizations will form connections
between services, devices and places. The seams between
these cannot be avoided, but can be managed and
finessed. Platforms that scale to do this are essential and
will offer the most engaging and profitable value.
The one word to sum up the coming year? Ambition. Those
companies that can truly deliver on their ambition with
a phenomenal user experience will become this year’s
innovative darlings.

THE NEW HEROES
OF DIGITAL
01
To become truly digital, businesses are seeking
to re-integrate people into the interface. In
the wake of omni-channel, the (imperfect)
term companies use to describe an entirely
linked suite of channels aspiring to provide a
seamless experience, humans are returning
as a fundamental component to a successful
service. The omni-channel approach runs
the risk of ditching humans for automated
touchpoints, but for digital to triumph, these
services must be re-humanized. Companies
need to strategically consider which services
are appropriate to manage via machines, and
which require human interaction.

wanted an employee experience.”

The last two decades of organizational thinking about
customers have revolved around making customer-
facing channels work better, but leaning towards
an entirely robotic solution in place of humanized
customer service just isn’t working. Why would you
commoditize one of the most important opportunities
to interact with your customer?
Language is shifting from “staff” or “operative”
to “colleague,” emphasizing a sense of collective
camaraderie and de-emphasizing a binary between
employees and customers. Another important aspect
of this trend is seen in online ratings, which now
extend to the actual people providing the (partly
digital) services we consume. This is most prominent
with the sharing economy’s darlings: Lyft passenger’s
can give feedback on their experience and dispute
ride fares directly if the experience didn’t meet their
expectations.

Companies are pulling back the curtain and revealing
their greatest assets: their people.
Although this trend has been building for a long
time now, it’s reaching its zenith as the digital world
continues to expand and diversify. Telstra in Australia
announced a massive “digital first” initiative that
automates all the repetitive, admin tasks so their
colleagues can have more meaningful interactions
with customers. Eyewear startup Warby Parker,
known for their differentiating distribution model and
their social impact, opened a new HQ in Nashville to
continue their high-touch customer service, including
humans answering the phone without the traditional
robotics of phone trees.
This isn’t just about providing employees with a
tablet-controlled dashboard with a glut of data. It
is creating points of action instead of purely points
of information. It’s about finding ways to equip your
omni-channel with an omni-colleague so that they are
able to take meaningful action for the user.

We’re moving beyond the Uncanny Valley of
digitization, where online interactions insufficiently
mimic customer service with human-beings. Instead,
employees shall wield efficient digital tools, but with
the warm intention and compassion of a superhero to
deepen their relationship with customers.
• Don’t just provide digital tools and data to those on
the front line, also train them with the deep social
skills to navigate a diverse group of customers.
• Consider a new type of employee evaluation that
would not only measure them on their speed, but on
the quality of the interaction with the customer.
• Think of new incentives for motivation: imagine if
customer ratings were transmitted to other social,
professional spaces like a LinkedIn profile.

THE GAP

MIND THE GAP02
We toggle between our myriad devices as much
and as swiftly as we change our environments.
Interesting challenges arise when our services
must understand the context in which we’re
engaging with our data and content. Since we’re
always in flux, the chances of our experience
being disrupted are much higher: when the trip
ends in the middle of watching that thrilling
in-flight movie or when we expect our in-store
experience to know our past purchases and
style preferences in the same way an online site
would. As our digital experiences across devices
becomes more fragmented, there are four types
of gaps that we need to address: the gap when
we lose our bandwidth, when we move between
devices, when we’re handed over between
different services, and when our digital data has
changed and needs to be updated.
Designing for experiences that
are resilient in the space between
physical and digital channels and
across devices.
MIND THE GAP02
The gap between physical and online spaces is a
new challenge for businesses that didn’t think of
themselves as tech companies, like banks, newspapers
and supermarkets. Users expect a unified brand across
digital touchpoints and, despite unreliable Wi-Fi, a
seamless continuation of their experience. Spotify’s
offline mode is probably the most impressive and
convenient for users shuttling between online and
offline environments.
This transforms their service in a beautifully ephemeral
way, as their content is no longer designated to one
platform.
In the UK, the huge growth of “click and collect”
services allows users the choices of online shopping
and the convenience of nearby in-store pickup. But,
while we were conducting competitor research,
one retailer gave us the wrong item and could not
guarantee a speedy refund. Another leading retailer’s
head of eCommerce told us that transparent inventory
is a worthy endeavor, but isn’t prestigious enough for
brands to take on.
WHAT’S
GOING ON
MIND THE GAP02
The gap above appears in the wake of technical and
temporal barriers, but also human ones due to hubris.
However, perhaps the biggest gap to address is the
one that emerges when we switch between devices,
and as the platforms multiply, this gap becomes more
crucial. The introduction of the Apple Watch may well
be a tipping point for wrist wearables. The watch may
be divorced from the mobile mothership from time to
time, but users will expect services to elegantly usher
us into offline mode even with spotty connectivity.
Fjord worked with a major car company to address
this as they navigate how the future of the connected
car would be affected by the pitfalls of physical travel
with patchy mobile coverage and spotty Wi-Fi. But
people still expect the software’s guarantee to trump
the real world. Designers must plan for the appropriate
communication when the meat space ultimately
disrupts our technological desires.

SUGGESTS
Not all gaps are spotted easily. For designers, the trick
is to find the tradeoff between the understanding of
what millions of customers are doing (the archetypes)
and compromising around that for customization.
• Use techniques like “Edges and Extremes” to
search for outlier experiences early on. Remember
that unexpected usage can come both from early
adopters (experimenting) and laggards (doing what
they understand in their context).
• Service Blueprinting should include analysis of
fundamentals easy to overlook like source (and
bandwidth) of connectivity and time spent in any
given mode.
• Consider organizational readiness, strategic overview
and the people within the organization who believe
in cross-channel experience and can see it through.
Who minds your gaps?
• Respect the cognitive workload for users: the
best services respect and remember the user’s
input by learning from it over time and not
getting digital amnesia.

AGGREGATION
MOVES TO SERVICES
AGGREGATION MOVES TO SERVICES03
Consumers are growing tired of overly
specialized applications and services and
the confusing amount of choice that these
services offer. Users have grown accustomed to
Google’s aggregation of information, Facebook’s
aggregation of people, and Spotify’s aggregation
of music. Now they have come to expect
experiences on other platforms to mirror this
precedent set by these mighty aggregators. This
year, we will probably see singularly focused
companies expand their thinking and start
branching into other parts of their customers’
lives—providing value in unexpected places, in
surprising ways.
Using a customer’s journey to spark
new service offerings
AGGREGATION MOVES TO SERVICES03
Leading edge companies are examining what their
users are doing before and after using an app, not
just when their app is open. Airbnb is extending their
offering—providing a “local companion” service and
now a lifestyle magazine—likely because the frustration
of specialized, unlinked services is most felt when users
are traveling. Why is a customer’s literal journey so
segmented between transportation, accommodation,
and recreation, and why does travel require several
apps? SNCF, France’s national state-owned railway
company, is working to reduce this with a whole
journey approach, providing door to door service with
private cars at either side of the user’s train travel.
WHAT’S
GOING ON
AGGREGATION MOVES TO SERVICES03
Services will have to reduce the pains of navigating
a fragmented experience. We’ll see the essence of
hacks like the IFTTT— a service that let’s you chain up
commands for multiple web services in one—translate
to other services, as is the case with Tink. Tink is a
service that aggregates all of a user’s financial services
and organizes them into insights. Meta services will
use open APIs to aggregate choice, as we’ve seen with
Tesla opening up their patents to other vendors for a
more robust customer journey. Lone applications will
go beyond the bounds of their core function and bleed
into addressing other aspects of the customer lifecycle.

SUGGESTS
While your service may initially focus on a specific
customer pain point, you may be prepared to address
different modes of the customer journey in order to
resonate in other areas of a customer’s life.
• Take insights from the far-reaching parts of the user
journey and apply them to your current service.
Seemingly dissociated moments may actually lead to
delightful customer experiences.
• Connecting service is more about building an
ecosystem comprised of relevant services, rather
than creating a one-stop shop. Consider partnerships
forged in technology and data.
• Find distinct ways to merge, coordinate, reframe,
and reconfigure moments in the customer journey
so that your service isn’t just a jack of all trades, but
actually helps to enhance the customer experience
and differentiate you.
DIGITAL
DIETING

DIGITAL DIETING04
During research for these Trends, the most
consistent observation was the increasing tension
between our attention on digital and our need
to focus on the (unmediated) real world around
us. One studio reported global research that
had repeatedly seen users say, “I’m addicted to
the screen and resent it.” This echoed the result
of research we conducted earlier in the year
that pointed to the growing need for users to
get their heads up and out of constant screen
obsession. One survey revealed that we look at
our phones over 1500 times a week. But is this
concern a generational one? Does Generation
Moth, attracted to high density screens like
moths are to a flame, feel the same as middle-
aged design “experts”?
Services and users mindfully
compartmentalize connectivity to live
beyond the screen.
DIGITAL DIETING04
People tend to feel overwhelmed, distracted and
stressed as a result of being continuously online
and want to turn off. Brands are driven by users’
digital fatigue: internet startups like Birchbox,
Rent the Runway, and Bonobos have set up stores,
though they are still connected experiences. The
rise of digital detox holidays and retreats resemble
nostalgic, pre-Internet summer camps. New social
etiquette arises out of the desire to unplug. In
Singapore students won a cash prize to develop
an app (ironically) that encourages people to stop
using their smartphones: when two people put
their phones together a tree grows inside the app
the longer the couple leaves it untouched. More
subtly, Calm and Headspace offer a digital route
to meditation, while Checky tells you how many
times you have looked at your phone that day. A
further aspect of our erratic approach to digital
dieting is privacy: it is now reported that Americans
say they want privacy, but don’t act on that desire.
Recent research has stated that despite growing up
in a digital environment that encourages sharing,
younger people are most concerned about privacy.
WHAT’S
GOING ON
DIGITAL DIETING04
This is creating some interesting new syntheses as
digital services look for physical manifestations to help
not only with awareness, but also to increase utility.
A great current example is Evernote’s two-way
collaboration with Moleskine to create physical
Evernote notebooks alongside Smart Stickers that
allow for digital tagging of physical notes, search and
share. It is notable that they talk of “the pleasure of
paper” in their marketing. Diverse manifestations of
this trend are driven by a multitude of causes: Russian
and German governments are said to be ordering good
old (electric) typewriters to prevent leaks. Samsung is
said to be thinking of selling offline in India to boost its
margins.
Other considerations focus on physical as well as
mental health. A recent study shows that constant
texting can put between 27 and 60 pounds of weight
stress on the spine at neck level.
Fjord does not expect twenty years of digital to slowly
dissipate. But a critical lens is being put on the use of
our technology and addiction to it as the shape and
price of our new habits become clear.

SUGGESTS
Fjord’s founder Olof Schybergson noted in his article
on Generation Moth that a whole generation raised
on touch screens would change digital design. This
generation expects screens to hold the promise of
interactivity and something more engaging than the
rest of the environment that they inhabit.
• Be careful about the demands you make on users
through alerts—the dividing line between need to
know, addiction and irritation is narrow.
• Re-examine the demands your organisation places
on staff—is their use of digital consistent with the
freedom or requirement to observe and reflect on
what is around them?
• Keep distraction out of collaborative and creative
moments: typically it takes people over 20 minutes
to return to full engagement with a complex
mental task.
• Consider ways users can avoid taking their phones
out; explore the use of haptic or audio feedback in
your service.

EMOTIONAL INTERFACES
FROM COMMANDS TO CONVERSATION

Historically, human interactions with our
enabling technologies have been largely
transactional. These human-machine
conversations have been isolated to a series of
rigid “commands,” without the accompanying
range of emotional information found in human
conversation. This is rapidly changing. Today,
advances in sensors, social media, synthetic
materials, newly published digital design
philosophies, such as Google’s material design,
and processing speed have yielded a world in
which we can start to communicate using an
emotional palette of visual expressions. Brands
are starting to place a premium on digital
personality as well as functionality.
As advances in technology enable
more natural human-machine
interactions, businesses need to
evolve their digital personalities.
EMOTIONAL INTERFACES
FROM COMMANDS TO CONVERSATION

Currently we’re witnessing an expansion of emotional
interface capabilities. Emotient has showcased their
real-time facial expression recognition software and
the Aldebaran new humanoid robot is capable of
detecting emotions through both vocal analysis and
facial recognition. Smartcardia released a product that
allows emotions to control internet-connected objects.
As the accuracy of emotional sensors become even
sharper, machines may know how we are feeling in the
future, even when we do not.
While machines are starting to understand more of
our natural communication methods, we’re adopting
new ways of expressing emotions amongst ourselves.
From the White House relying heavily on Emoji in their
report on millennials to things like the smartphone
keyboard based entirely on GIFS, Emoji’s have entered
our vernacular. Also, it’s no wonder that our highly
visual culture has gravitated to the image-oriented,
mobile friendly Instagram. Perhaps the most significant
development this year: a supercomputer finally
passed (according to some but not all commentators)
The Turing Test, effectively fooling users into thinking
it was human.

In the near future, not only would our inputs include
increasing emotive content, we’ll actually begin
developing emotional connections with our machines.
It was fortuitous timing in 2014 to see the release
of the movie Her, whose popularity is probably
down to the fact that although the world of intimate
relationships with our interfaces seems like sci-fi, it also
feels tangibly close.
The Kiss messenger, by Lovotics, is a set of internet-
connected artificial lips that allow users to send kisses
in real-time, and is expected to hit the market in 2015.
The company Robokind recently released a life-like
humanoid robot that is used for treating autism, Jibo,
“The World’s First Family Robot” and Pepper, an
emotion sensing robot, are expected to launch next
year as well. As far as emotions and human-computer
interactions are concerned, we’re making the climb
out of the uncanny valley and developing emotional
relationships with our machines. As gesture, facial,
and vocal recognition all quickly become realities, we
can expect that next year we’ll witness some profound
new interactions.

With so many emerging technologies on the horizon, it
may be difficult to know where to invest, but knowing
the direction of momentum can help us arrive at a few
recommendations:
• Find your brand’s personality, and incorporate it into
your digital touchpoints, i.e. infuse digital “smiles”
and infuse them into their ecosystems.
• Think about emotionally responsive UI.
• Use Emojis. Businesses should consider thinking
about how to incorporate this language into their
messaging, notification and authentication platforms.
• Start a robot strategy. How would your brand find a
presence with retail robots soon acting as your digital
delivery platform? Since many robots are voice-
controlled, is it possible that we might see a decrease
in time spent in front of “screens”?
• Consider gestures. Does your service cry for a more
human interaction? Are there elements of your
business that benefit from a gesture-based UI?
DIGITAL DISRUPTION

DIGITAL DISRUPTION GOES PHYSICAL06
Now that the physical world is laced with sensors
and overlaid with software, digital is able to
transform physical interaction with increasing
acuity and reach. This shift is bolstered by
startups with broad visions for how to mix digital
and physical for the first time, across industries.
The first main driver of this trend is the startling
speed with which the major pioneers of this
disruption grew: Uber has gone from virtual
obscurity in 2010 to achieving iconic status in
2014. The new digital revolutions have found
ways to make physical objects—like cars in the
case of the ride sharing economy—go digitally
viral. Which brings us to the second driver of this
trend: the scale of ambition that these companies
aim to achieve. The CEO of Evernote, a note-
taking service, wants to be “the global platform
for your memory.” Startups with a foot in the
physical are beginning to claim entire areas of
cognitive activity to make services that are both
responsive to need and predicting those needs.
More and more physical actions
and items will become data-driven
services.
DIGITAL DISRUPTION GOES PHYSICAL06
Plenty of physical actions and devices have already
become data-driven services. The chassis, seats and
tires of the Tesla S may remind you of the physical
object known as the car, but that’s where the similarity
ends. The Tesla’s power plant, drivetrain, suspension
and cabin control systems are extensions of an
operating system that can intelligently respond to
human input and update in response to changing
conditions. Uber’s famous market disruption and
stunning growth rate are due to the same utilization
of a smart data-driven service model. In a recent
test, Uber’s data scientists were able to predict final
destinations 75% of the time. Combine this rapid
expansion with a confidence in delivering users
anything they want, and Uber is poised to disrupt other
industries, as well. They have already expanded into
health by offering on-demand flu shots.
WHAT’S
GOING ON
DIGITAL DISRUPTION GOES PHYSICAL06
The capability for vast data generation and
communication exists, but the critical role of storage
and analysis in the disruption of the physical world
hasn’t been fully explored.
As one global CEO recently quipped: “if you went
to bed last night as an industrial company, you’re
going to wake up this morning as a software and
analytics company.” The operative word here is
“industrial.” Businesses are starting to harness the
power of recorded physical actions—and the devices
that sense them— to achieve new levels of efficiency.
It is predicted that 50 billion devices will produce
actionable data by 2020. Watch also for the (literal)
rise of drones this year. Human actions related
to commerce, travel and social activities are now
understood clearly enough to allow companies to make
meaningful disruptions in the physical world. Google
Cardboard is a playful example of disrupting our
physical world by simply providing a cardboard casing
for our mobile phones that allow us to experience
virtual reality. Beyond Uber and Airbnb, the next wave
of services that’ll mobilize goods are here: Zirx parks
your car for you and Shyp that’ll deliver packages for
you at a low cost.

Companies can no longer assume that just because
their assets are physical, bulky, and/or expensive, they
are immune from digitally led disruption. In the race to
sense and record the world, two types of leaders will
emerge: those with the market lead in smart devices
and those with the market lead in collecting and
analyzing measurable human action.
• Consider service design techniques like Trends
Reframing to get a big picture on what you need to

• Those who design these services with consistent

MONEY TALKS07
New generations of users are jumping directly to
mobile and social platforms.
Short, visual messages and quick interactions
are preferred, so it’s no surprise that messaging
services are merging with the ecommerce space
to capture the (fleeting) attention and money of
the most social users. Venmo, posing a threat to
cash, is popular because of its convenient social
features; Snapchat teamed up with Square to
“snap” a payment amount to friends. This social
and emotional layer, over what was once a purely
transactional behavior, is changing the way we
mobilize our money. Brands need to adapt their
content into an authentic conversation for users.
Commerce and messaging combine
for payments and shopping.
MONEY TALKS07
Silicon Valley is not spurring this trend. Compared
to China, the country redefining commerce by
transforming it into a conversation, these startups
are late to the party. WeChat, WhatsApp’s highly
successful China-based competitor, is working to be
more than a platform for chatting. The three year old,
mobile-only platform has moved into gaming, shopping
and banking, allowing their 500 million users to send
digital cash and make purchases from the platform.
Building on top of popular platforms and user
interactions trumps any traditional brick and mortar
strategy for retail. Taobao, a Chinese site, enables
consumers and small merchants to sell products, and
even services, online.

LOOKING
FORWARD
In Western markets, apps like Venmo are sold with
a clear purpose and focused attention on user
experience, aesthetics and clear functionalities. Once
they reach the emerging markets, local users will
repurpose, transform and incorporate them into a
personal and fragmented service ecosystem.
For example, Instagram users adapted the social
sharing site into an eCommerce site, as many users in
these emerging markets publish the services that they
sell. Taking cues from this transformation, we’ll see
many more big brands adopting a more visually rich,
mobile-first strategy on platforms with established
audiences. A visual service like Instagram could be
transformed by its users into a retail channel with new
functionalities like coupons, orders or payments.

Look out for highly disruptive platforms and ideas
coming from China and other markets like India
and Indonesia, that have gone mobile first. We’re
seeing a new slew of players who will influence
established digital markets or go further and challenge
incumbents. Study them.
• Re-think what happens when payments become part
of the conversation. How might payments change
further, through negotiation on pricing, for example?
• What other consumer services might get embedded
in or changed by conversation? What impact might
this have on an organization’s internal process–
especially when a generation native to this way of
communicating becomes the workforce?
• Try the service design method of Touchpoint
Reframing, used to explore the delivery of a service
through touchpoints that are currently different
from the ones being used or proposed, in order to
challenge assumptions and open the door to this kind
of thinking.

For years mobile experts debated whether
the phone would be a “Swiss Army Knife” or
a focused tool ideal for voice and messaging.
That debate went away with the iPhone in 2007.
Since then the mobile has been positioned as the
“remote control for life.” Many of the new devices
coming to market—watches, sensors, wearables—
rely on the phone for connectivity, data display,
and software updates. This positions the phone
as the sun in a solar system. But might we move
to a system of connected services and devices
that looks more like a constellation? Fjord’s view
is that the smartphone could retain its solar
dominance for some time to come, but services
and devices would put into question the phone’s
role in experience delivery.

Nearables are becoming ubiquitous as traditionally
non-digital businesses integrate the devices into their
services. Starwood Hotels and Resorts introduced
virtual doors, made unlockable via smartphone
and Volvo introduced virtual car locks for delivery.
But if these innovations are driven by apps and the
accompanying interactions one needs to navigate
apps, are they really making the experience any better
than a traditional key card? With the introduction
of Apple’s HomeKit, a complete communication
ecosystem of devices could be standardized, meaning
simple commands are within our grasp, as long as
developers and manufacturers are on board.
Meanwhile, wearable sales have continued to grow
in the health, wellness and fitness sector, despite
challenges in technical accuracy, battery life and
consumer fickleness over activity tracking. Wearables
have become a household name, but the future

ABI Research estimates that over 30 billion devices
will be connected to the Internet of Things by 2020.
But most electronics manufacturers have been
engaged in a cost-cutting race to the bottom, often
focusing on singular interaction. Devices need to
manage functions from more than one input to be
successful. In the potential wake of wearable fatigue,
hearables—smart ear devices—could come to a
user’s rescue. They also solve the accuracy problem
that wearables are up against when measuring and
monitoring movements. People on the ground in
developing countries could create new connected
solutions without an expensive dependency on the
multinational corporates. Subversive industries with
open tools could cross-pollinate. Smartphones and
wearables could increasingly interact with a whole
range of sensors that you never see and submit data
to cloud data services you don’t own, but which act
on your behalf. Fjord has been working with an energy
provider to develop systems that learn from patterns in
electricity usage. Behavioral change recommendations

Control and automation have no meaning without
solving a real problem for the end user, whether it’s
seeking climate control, peace of mind, community
wellness, or assisted living. Wearable devices would
be popular based on how cleverly they disguise
their technology, or how naturally they design their
interaction. Build in APIs that can flex around emergent
patterns in the device ecosystem.
• Consider how a service could become connected on
its own terms, or how a service could be enhanced
by an open standard such as integrating with
OpenRemote or If This Then That.
• Combine effortless interaction, specific sensing
capability established by the device, the right
communication protocol and the supporting cloud
data analytics service, in order to be successful.
• Piggyback on standardized eco-systems that have

We’ve seen the sentiment—IWWIWWIWI or I
Want What I Want When I Want It—in media,
through Netflix-enabled binge watching, and
now we’re seeing this trend mirrored in physical
consumption. Look out, today’s efficiently
reactive services will be eaten by tomorrow’s
delightfully predictive ones.
More services are starting to
anticipate what a customer might
want and act on it, using smart design
and data mining, before the user
clicks a button.
THE SIXTH SENSE09
Being a design fortune teller isn’t easy. According to
a recent study, there is a discrepancy between what
retailers think their most valuable site features are
(key-word search) and what their customers really
want (inventory status). To satisfy users, companies
need to be faster than instant: they need to be
predictive.
Amazon explores this with “anticipatory shipping,”
a data-driven service that will ship products to “a
final geographical area” without knowing the exact
destination address in advance. This trend can be
largely credited to Uber, which harnessed dynamic
data research, independent workers, and mobile
devices for a successful model. Their model easily spins
off into other industries, hence startups like Square
Order, and others that deliver everything from house
cleaning to Manservants.
Mobile has transformed on-demand requests, but the
real impact of mobile has been on the supply chain,
where independent workers are armed with smart
phones and are app-enabled to help them schedule
jobs, receive tasks and map where they’re going.
WHAT’S
GOING ON
THE SIXTH SENSE09
As this new flurry of startups blur our online
expectations with offline reality, users are looking for
a personalized experience, with a guarantee of trust
and certainty. With ubiquitous data collection at this
level, it’s possible to build an entirely transparent and
automatic service with a degree of personalization
we’ve never experienced. Imagine the advantage of
local businesses that are able to get you on-demand
products and services, like TaskRabbit, which makes
on-demand scheduling for just about any request
possible. This strategy is likely to fill other local niche
needs also, through the help of services like Dispatch,
a startup offering developers tools so other companies
can add real-time scheduling and arrival tracking to
their own sites and mobile apps.” When local wisdom is
combined with these new data tools, local businesses
can harness their contextual awareness and deep
understanding of their users’ culture to build crucial
trust.

FJORD
SUGGESTS
• Instead of basing the designs on guesswork or
snapshot analytics, the winning strategy is to design
a system that gathers lots of data and then adapts to
the emerging patterns arising from that data.
• Those trusted with intimate data—such as healthcare
providers or banks—must generate new value in order
to avoid disintermediation.
Businesses that want to be more predictive can devise
a solid data strategy that addresses emerging data
sources and the potential uses for that data. This
strategy must also define ethical conduct for the use
of that data.
• Use tools that drive out radical ideas in order to
move towards on-demand delivery (and its lovechild,
predictive). These could include Role Play or Journey
Mapping in a workshop.
• Savvy retailers must use their physical locations in
high-density areas and their close proximity to the
customer as an advantage.

Accenture | Tendencias 2015

  • 1. OMNI-COLLEAGUES THE NEW HEROES OF DIGITAL 01 TRENDS 2015TRENDS IMPACTING DESIGN & INNOVATION
  • 2. Once again we have drawn Trends from right across all of Fjord’s team – business designers, interaction and visual designers, project managers, business development, marketing, HR, IT and finance too. Our Trends focus on issues we expect to tackle in the coming year, as they affect design, users, organizations and society. This year we have selected nine. We hope they will inform the strategic and design decisions that our clients and we take every day. Some emerging meta themes to take note of... TRENDS 2015
  • 3. OMNI-COLLEAGUES THE NEW HEROES OF DIGITAL 01 THE IMPACT OF DIGITAL ON THE REAL WORLD IS COMING INTO FOCUS Software is now becoming embedded in the environment very quickly, in ways that we will all be witnessing and talking about. At the same time, people are also going back into the front line of the interface itself. MAGIC IS NOW EXPECTED Maybe it’s the result of a generation weaned on Harry Potter, but Gen Y is hard to surprise; they confidently expect services to become more magical. For some services, it’s by guessing your intent or making boring transactional stuff disappear. If you can conjure with skill, you can differentiate. In 2015, successful organizations will form connections between services, devices and places. The seams between these cannot be avoided, but can be managed and finessed. Platforms that scale to do this are essential and will offer the most engaging and profitable value. The one word to sum up the coming year? Ambition. Those companies that can truly deliver on their ambition with a phenomenal user experience will become this year’s innovative darlings.
  • 4. TABLE OF CONTENTS 01 OMNI-COLLEAGUES THE NEW HEROES OF DIGITAL MIND THE GAP 02 AGGREGATION MOVES TO SERVICES 03 04 DIGITAL DIETING EMOTIONAL INTERFACES FROM COMMANDS TO CONVERSATION 05 DIGITAL DISRUPTION GOES PHYSICAL 06 07 MONEY TALKS BE EFFORTLESS INTERACTIONS IN CONNECTED SYSTEMS 08 THE SIXTH SENSE 09
  • 6. To become truly digital, businesses are seeking to re-integrate people into the interface. In the wake of omni-channel, the (imperfect) term companies use to describe an entirely linked suite of channels aspiring to provide a seamless experience, humans are returning as a fundamental component to a successful service. The omni-channel approach runs the risk of ditching humans for automated touchpoints, but for digital to triumph, these services must be re-humanized. Companies need to strategically consider which services are appropriate to manage via machines, and which require human interaction. “We had a customer experience but wanted an employee experience.” Airbnb’s Mark Levy, Global Head of Employee Experience OMNI-COLLEAGUES THE NEW HEROES OF DIGITAL 01
  • 7. OMNI-COLLEAGUES THE NEW HEROES OF DIGITAL 01 The last two decades of organizational thinking about customers have revolved around making customer- facing channels work better, but leaning towards an entirely robotic solution in place of humanized customer service just isn’t working. Why would you commoditize one of the most important opportunities to interact with your customer? Language is shifting from “staff” or “operative” to “colleague,” emphasizing a sense of collective camaraderie and de-emphasizing a binary between employees and customers. Another important aspect of this trend is seen in online ratings, which now extend to the actual people providing the (partly digital) services we consume. This is most prominent with the sharing economy’s darlings: Lyft passenger’s can give feedback on their experience and dispute ride fares directly if the experience didn’t meet their expectations. WHAT’S GOING ON
  • 8. OMNI-COLLEAGUES THE NEW HEROES OF DIGITAL 01 Companies are pulling back the curtain and revealing their greatest assets: their people. Although this trend has been building for a long time now, it’s reaching its zenith as the digital world continues to expand and diversify. Telstra in Australia announced a massive “digital first” initiative that automates all the repetitive, admin tasks so their colleagues can have more meaningful interactions with customers. Eyewear startup Warby Parker, known for their differentiating distribution model and their social impact, opened a new HQ in Nashville to continue their high-touch customer service, including humans answering the phone without the traditional robotics of phone trees. This isn’t just about providing employees with a tablet-controlled dashboard with a glut of data. It is creating points of action instead of purely points of information. It’s about finding ways to equip your omni-channel with an omni-colleague so that they are able to take meaningful action for the user. LOOKING FORWARD
  • 9. OMNI-COLLEAGUES THE NEW HEROES OF DIGITAL 01 We’re moving beyond the Uncanny Valley of digitization, where online interactions insufficiently mimic customer service with human-beings. Instead, employees shall wield efficient digital tools, but with the warm intention and compassion of a superhero to deepen their relationship with customers. • Don’t just provide digital tools and data to those on the front line, also train them with the deep social skills to navigate a diverse group of customers. • Consider a new type of employee evaluation that would not only measure them on their speed, but on the quality of the interaction with the customer. • Think of new incentives for motivation: imagine if customer ratings were transmitted to other social, professional spaces like a LinkedIn profile. FJORD SUGGESTS
  • 11. MIND THE GAP02 We toggle between our myriad devices as much and as swiftly as we change our environments. Interesting challenges arise when our services must understand the context in which we’re engaging with our data and content. Since we’re always in flux, the chances of our experience being disrupted are much higher: when the trip ends in the middle of watching that thrilling in-flight movie or when we expect our in-store experience to know our past purchases and style preferences in the same way an online site would. As our digital experiences across devices becomes more fragmented, there are four types of gaps that we need to address: the gap when we lose our bandwidth, when we move between devices, when we’re handed over between different services, and when our digital data has changed and needs to be updated. Designing for experiences that are resilient in the space between physical and digital channels and across devices.
  • 12. MIND THE GAP02 The gap between physical and online spaces is a new challenge for businesses that didn’t think of themselves as tech companies, like banks, newspapers and supermarkets. Users expect a unified brand across digital touchpoints and, despite unreliable Wi-Fi, a seamless continuation of their experience. Spotify’s offline mode is probably the most impressive and convenient for users shuttling between online and offline environments. This transforms their service in a beautifully ephemeral way, as their content is no longer designated to one platform. In the UK, the huge growth of “click and collect” services allows users the choices of online shopping and the convenience of nearby in-store pickup. But, while we were conducting competitor research, one retailer gave us the wrong item and could not guarantee a speedy refund. Another leading retailer’s head of eCommerce told us that transparent inventory is a worthy endeavor, but isn’t prestigious enough for brands to take on. WHAT’S GOING ON
  • 13. MIND THE GAP02 The gap above appears in the wake of technical and temporal barriers, but also human ones due to hubris. However, perhaps the biggest gap to address is the one that emerges when we switch between devices, and as the platforms multiply, this gap becomes more crucial. The introduction of the Apple Watch may well be a tipping point for wrist wearables. The watch may be divorced from the mobile mothership from time to time, but users will expect services to elegantly usher us into offline mode even with spotty connectivity. Fjord worked with a major car company to address this as they navigate how the future of the connected car would be affected by the pitfalls of physical travel with patchy mobile coverage and spotty Wi-Fi. But people still expect the software’s guarantee to trump the real world. Designers must plan for the appropriate communication when the meat space ultimately disrupts our technological desires. LOOKING FORWARD
  • 14. MIND THE GAP02 FJORD SUGGESTS Not all gaps are spotted easily. For designers, the trick is to find the tradeoff between the understanding of what millions of customers are doing (the archetypes) and compromising around that for customization. • Use techniques like “Edges and Extremes” to search for outlier experiences early on. Remember that unexpected usage can come both from early adopters (experimenting) and laggards (doing what they understand in their context). • Service Blueprinting should include analysis of fundamentals easy to overlook like source (and bandwidth) of connectivity and time spent in any given mode. • Consider organizational readiness, strategic overview and the people within the organization who believe in cross-channel experience and can see it through. Who minds your gaps? • Respect the cognitive workload for users: the best services respect and remember the user’s input by learning from it over time and not getting digital amnesia.
  • 16. AGGREGATION MOVES TO SERVICES03 Consumers are growing tired of overly specialized applications and services and the confusing amount of choice that these services offer. Users have grown accustomed to Google’s aggregation of information, Facebook’s aggregation of people, and Spotify’s aggregation of music. Now they have come to expect experiences on other platforms to mirror this precedent set by these mighty aggregators. This year, we will probably see singularly focused companies expand their thinking and start branching into other parts of their customers’ lives—providing value in unexpected places, in surprising ways. Using a customer’s journey to spark new service offerings
  • 17. AGGREGATION MOVES TO SERVICES03 Leading edge companies are examining what their users are doing before and after using an app, not just when their app is open. Airbnb is extending their offering—providing a “local companion” service and now a lifestyle magazine—likely because the frustration of specialized, unlinked services is most felt when users are traveling. Why is a customer’s literal journey so segmented between transportation, accommodation, and recreation, and why does travel require several apps? SNCF, France’s national state-owned railway company, is working to reduce this with a whole journey approach, providing door to door service with private cars at either side of the user’s train travel. WHAT’S GOING ON
  • 18. AGGREGATION MOVES TO SERVICES03 Services will have to reduce the pains of navigating a fragmented experience. We’ll see the essence of hacks like the IFTTT— a service that let’s you chain up commands for multiple web services in one—translate to other services, as is the case with Tink. Tink is a service that aggregates all of a user’s financial services and organizes them into insights. Meta services will use open APIs to aggregate choice, as we’ve seen with Tesla opening up their patents to other vendors for a more robust customer journey. Lone applications will go beyond the bounds of their core function and bleed into addressing other aspects of the customer lifecycle. LOOKING FORWARD
  • 19. AGGREGATION MOVES TO SERVICES03 FJORD SUGGESTS While your service may initially focus on a specific customer pain point, you may be prepared to address different modes of the customer journey in order to resonate in other areas of a customer’s life. • Take insights from the far-reaching parts of the user journey and apply them to your current service. Seemingly dissociated moments may actually lead to delightful customer experiences. • Connecting service is more about building an ecosystem comprised of relevant services, rather than creating a one-stop shop. Consider partnerships forged in technology and data. • Find distinct ways to merge, coordinate, reframe, and reconfigure moments in the customer journey so that your service isn’t just a jack of all trades, but actually helps to enhance the customer experience and differentiate you.
  • 21. DIGITAL DIETING04 During research for these Trends, the most consistent observation was the increasing tension between our attention on digital and our need to focus on the (unmediated) real world around us. One studio reported global research that had repeatedly seen users say, “I’m addicted to the screen and resent it.” This echoed the result of research we conducted earlier in the year that pointed to the growing need for users to get their heads up and out of constant screen obsession. One survey revealed that we look at our phones over 1500 times a week. But is this concern a generational one? Does Generation Moth, attracted to high density screens like moths are to a flame, feel the same as middle- aged design “experts”? Services and users mindfully compartmentalize connectivity to live beyond the screen.
  • 22. DIGITAL DIETING04 People tend to feel overwhelmed, distracted and stressed as a result of being continuously online and want to turn off. Brands are driven by users’ digital fatigue: internet startups like Birchbox, Rent the Runway, and Bonobos have set up stores, though they are still connected experiences. The rise of digital detox holidays and retreats resemble nostalgic, pre-Internet summer camps. New social etiquette arises out of the desire to unplug. In Singapore students won a cash prize to develop an app (ironically) that encourages people to stop using their smartphones: when two people put their phones together a tree grows inside the app the longer the couple leaves it untouched. More subtly, Calm and Headspace offer a digital route to meditation, while Checky tells you how many times you have looked at your phone that day. A further aspect of our erratic approach to digital dieting is privacy: it is now reported that Americans say they want privacy, but don’t act on that desire. Recent research has stated that despite growing up in a digital environment that encourages sharing, younger people are most concerned about privacy. WHAT’S GOING ON
  • 23. DIGITAL DIETING04 This is creating some interesting new syntheses as digital services look for physical manifestations to help not only with awareness, but also to increase utility. A great current example is Evernote’s two-way collaboration with Moleskine to create physical Evernote notebooks alongside Smart Stickers that allow for digital tagging of physical notes, search and share. It is notable that they talk of “the pleasure of paper” in their marketing. Diverse manifestations of this trend are driven by a multitude of causes: Russian and German governments are said to be ordering good old (electric) typewriters to prevent leaks. Samsung is said to be thinking of selling offline in India to boost its margins. Other considerations focus on physical as well as mental health. A recent study shows that constant texting can put between 27 and 60 pounds of weight stress on the spine at neck level. Fjord does not expect twenty years of digital to slowly dissipate. But a critical lens is being put on the use of our technology and addiction to it as the shape and price of our new habits become clear. LOOKING FORWARD
  • 24. DIGITAL DIETING04 FJORD SUGGESTS Fjord’s founder Olof Schybergson noted in his article on Generation Moth that a whole generation raised on touch screens would change digital design. This generation expects screens to hold the promise of interactivity and something more engaging than the rest of the environment that they inhabit. • Be careful about the demands you make on users through alerts—the dividing line between need to know, addiction and irritation is narrow. • Re-examine the demands your organisation places on staff—is their use of digital consistent with the freedom or requirement to observe and reflect on what is around them? • Keep distraction out of collaborative and creative moments: typically it takes people over 20 minutes to return to full engagement with a complex mental task. • Consider ways users can avoid taking their phones out; explore the use of haptic or audio feedback in your service.
  • 26. EMOTIONAL INTERFACES FROM COMMANDS TO CONVERSATION 05 Historically, human interactions with our enabling technologies have been largely transactional. These human-machine conversations have been isolated to a series of rigid “commands,” without the accompanying range of emotional information found in human conversation. This is rapidly changing. Today, advances in sensors, social media, synthetic materials, newly published digital design philosophies, such as Google’s material design, and processing speed have yielded a world in which we can start to communicate using an emotional palette of visual expressions. Brands are starting to place a premium on digital personality as well as functionality. As advances in technology enable more natural human-machine interactions, businesses need to evolve their digital personalities.
  • 27. EMOTIONAL INTERFACES FROM COMMANDS TO CONVERSATION 05 Currently we’re witnessing an expansion of emotional interface capabilities. Emotient has showcased their real-time facial expression recognition software and the Aldebaran new humanoid robot is capable of detecting emotions through both vocal analysis and facial recognition. Smartcardia released a product that allows emotions to control internet-connected objects. As the accuracy of emotional sensors become even sharper, machines may know how we are feeling in the future, even when we do not. While machines are starting to understand more of our natural communication methods, we’re adopting new ways of expressing emotions amongst ourselves. From the White House relying heavily on Emoji in their report on millennials to things like the smartphone keyboard based entirely on GIFS, Emoji’s have entered our vernacular. Also, it’s no wonder that our highly visual culture has gravitated to the image-oriented, mobile friendly Instagram. Perhaps the most significant development this year: a supercomputer finally passed (according to some but not all commentators) The Turing Test, effectively fooling users into thinking it was human. WHAT’S GOING ON
  • 28. EMOTIONAL INTERFACES FROM COMMANDS TO CONVERSATION 05 In the near future, not only would our inputs include increasing emotive content, we’ll actually begin developing emotional connections with our machines. It was fortuitous timing in 2014 to see the release of the movie Her, whose popularity is probably down to the fact that although the world of intimate relationships with our interfaces seems like sci-fi, it also feels tangibly close. The Kiss messenger, by Lovotics, is a set of internet- connected artificial lips that allow users to send kisses in real-time, and is expected to hit the market in 2015. The company Robokind recently released a life-like humanoid robot that is used for treating autism, Jibo, “The World’s First Family Robot” and Pepper, an emotion sensing robot, are expected to launch next year as well. As far as emotions and human-computer interactions are concerned, we’re making the climb out of the uncanny valley and developing emotional relationships with our machines. As gesture, facial, and vocal recognition all quickly become realities, we can expect that next year we’ll witness some profound new interactions. LOOKING FORWARD
  • 29. EMOTIONAL INTERFACES FROM COMMANDS TO CONVERSATION 05 FJORD SUGGESTS With so many emerging technologies on the horizon, it may be difficult to know where to invest, but knowing the direction of momentum can help us arrive at a few recommendations: • Find your brand’s personality, and incorporate it into your digital touchpoints, i.e. infuse digital “smiles” and infuse them into their ecosystems. • Think about emotionally responsive UI. • Use Emojis. Businesses should consider thinking about how to incorporate this language into their messaging, notification and authentication platforms. • Start a robot strategy. How would your brand find a presence with retail robots soon acting as your digital delivery platform? Since many robots are voice- controlled, is it possible that we might see a decrease in time spent in front of “screens”? • Consider gestures. Does your service cry for a more human interaction? Are there elements of your business that benefit from a gesture-based UI?
  • 31. DIGITAL DISRUPTION GOES PHYSICAL06 Now that the physical world is laced with sensors and overlaid with software, digital is able to transform physical interaction with increasing acuity and reach. This shift is bolstered by startups with broad visions for how to mix digital and physical for the first time, across industries. The first main driver of this trend is the startling speed with which the major pioneers of this disruption grew: Uber has gone from virtual obscurity in 2010 to achieving iconic status in 2014. The new digital revolutions have found ways to make physical objects—like cars in the case of the ride sharing economy—go digitally viral. Which brings us to the second driver of this trend: the scale of ambition that these companies aim to achieve. The CEO of Evernote, a note- taking service, wants to be “the global platform for your memory.” Startups with a foot in the physical are beginning to claim entire areas of cognitive activity to make services that are both responsive to need and predicting those needs. More and more physical actions and items will become data-driven services.
  • 32. DIGITAL DISRUPTION GOES PHYSICAL06 Plenty of physical actions and devices have already become data-driven services. The chassis, seats and tires of the Tesla S may remind you of the physical object known as the car, but that’s where the similarity ends. The Tesla’s power plant, drivetrain, suspension and cabin control systems are extensions of an operating system that can intelligently respond to human input and update in response to changing conditions. Uber’s famous market disruption and stunning growth rate are due to the same utilization of a smart data-driven service model. In a recent test, Uber’s data scientists were able to predict final destinations 75% of the time. Combine this rapid expansion with a confidence in delivering users anything they want, and Uber is poised to disrupt other industries, as well. They have already expanded into health by offering on-demand flu shots. WHAT’S GOING ON
  • 33. DIGITAL DISRUPTION GOES PHYSICAL06 The capability for vast data generation and communication exists, but the critical role of storage and analysis in the disruption of the physical world hasn’t been fully explored. As one global CEO recently quipped: “if you went to bed last night as an industrial company, you’re going to wake up this morning as a software and analytics company.” The operative word here is “industrial.” Businesses are starting to harness the power of recorded physical actions—and the devices that sense them— to achieve new levels of efficiency. It is predicted that 50 billion devices will produce actionable data by 2020. Watch also for the (literal) rise of drones this year. Human actions related to commerce, travel and social activities are now understood clearly enough to allow companies to make meaningful disruptions in the physical world. Google Cardboard is a playful example of disrupting our physical world by simply providing a cardboard casing for our mobile phones that allow us to experience virtual reality. Beyond Uber and Airbnb, the next wave of services that’ll mobilize goods are here: Zirx parks your car for you and Shyp that’ll deliver packages for you at a low cost. LOOKING FORWARD
  • 34. DIGITAL DISRUPTION GOES PHYSICAL06 FJORD SUGGESTS Companies can no longer assume that just because their assets are physical, bulky, and/or expensive, they are immune from digitally led disruption. In the race to sense and record the world, two types of leaders will emerge: those with the market lead in smart devices and those with the market lead in collecting and analyzing measurable human action. • Consider service design techniques like Trends Reframing to get a big picture on what you need to disrupt before someone else does. • Those who design these services with consistent delight in mind will win. • Where can a sensor revolutionize your business or, at the least, your customer understanding?
  • 36. MONEY TALKS07 New generations of users are jumping directly to mobile and social platforms. Short, visual messages and quick interactions are preferred, so it’s no surprise that messaging services are merging with the ecommerce space to capture the (fleeting) attention and money of the most social users. Venmo, posing a threat to cash, is popular because of its convenient social features; Snapchat teamed up with Square to “snap” a payment amount to friends. This social and emotional layer, over what was once a purely transactional behavior, is changing the way we mobilize our money. Brands need to adapt their content into an authentic conversation for users. Commerce and messaging combine for payments and shopping.
  • 37. MONEY TALKS07 Silicon Valley is not spurring this trend. Compared to China, the country redefining commerce by transforming it into a conversation, these startups are late to the party. WeChat, WhatsApp’s highly successful China-based competitor, is working to be more than a platform for chatting. The three year old, mobile-only platform has moved into gaming, shopping and banking, allowing their 500 million users to send digital cash and make purchases from the platform. Building on top of popular platforms and user interactions trumps any traditional brick and mortar strategy for retail. Taobao, a Chinese site, enables consumers and small merchants to sell products, and even services, online. WHAT’S GOING ON
  • 38. MONEY TALKS07 LOOKING FORWARD In Western markets, apps like Venmo are sold with a clear purpose and focused attention on user experience, aesthetics and clear functionalities. Once they reach the emerging markets, local users will repurpose, transform and incorporate them into a personal and fragmented service ecosystem. For example, Instagram users adapted the social sharing site into an eCommerce site, as many users in these emerging markets publish the services that they sell. Taking cues from this transformation, we’ll see many more big brands adopting a more visually rich, mobile-first strategy on platforms with established audiences. A visual service like Instagram could be transformed by its users into a retail channel with new functionalities like coupons, orders or payments.
  • 39. MONEY TALKS07 FJORD SUGGESTS Look out for highly disruptive platforms and ideas coming from China and other markets like India and Indonesia, that have gone mobile first. We’re seeing a new slew of players who will influence established digital markets or go further and challenge incumbents. Study them. • Re-think what happens when payments become part of the conversation. How might payments change further, through negotiation on pricing, for example? • What other consumer services might get embedded in or changed by conversation? What impact might this have on an organization’s internal process– especially when a generation native to this way of communicating becomes the workforce? • Try the service design method of Touchpoint Reframing, used to explore the delivery of a service through touchpoints that are currently different from the ones being used or proposed, in order to challenge assumptions and open the door to this kind of thinking.
  • 41. BE EFFORTLESS INTERACTION IN CONNECTED SYSTEMS 08 For years mobile experts debated whether the phone would be a “Swiss Army Knife” or a focused tool ideal for voice and messaging. That debate went away with the iPhone in 2007. Since then the mobile has been positioned as the “remote control for life.” Many of the new devices coming to market—watches, sensors, wearables— rely on the phone for connectivity, data display, and software updates. This positions the phone as the sun in a solar system. But might we move to a system of connected services and devices that looks more like a constellation? Fjord’s view is that the smartphone could retain its solar dominance for some time to come, but services and devices would put into question the phone’s role in experience delivery. From smartphones to beacons, the gateways to interact with our surroundings are not only expanding, but also standardizing.
  • 42. BE EFFORTLESS INTERACTION IN CONNECTED SYSTEMS 08 Nearables are becoming ubiquitous as traditionally non-digital businesses integrate the devices into their services. Starwood Hotels and Resorts introduced virtual doors, made unlockable via smartphone and Volvo introduced virtual car locks for delivery. But if these innovations are driven by apps and the accompanying interactions one needs to navigate apps, are they really making the experience any better than a traditional key card? With the introduction of Apple’s HomeKit, a complete communication ecosystem of devices could be standardized, meaning simple commands are within our grasp, as long as developers and manufacturers are on board. Meanwhile, wearable sales have continued to grow in the health, wellness and fitness sector, despite challenges in technical accuracy, battery life and consumer fickleness over activity tracking. Wearables have become a household name, but the future depends on the symbiotic relationship between mobile and wearables (and nearables for that matter), for a stronger device ecosystem. WHAT’S GOING ON
  • 43. BE EFFORTLESS INTERACTION IN CONNECTED SYSTEMS 08 ABI Research estimates that over 30 billion devices will be connected to the Internet of Things by 2020. But most electronics manufacturers have been engaged in a cost-cutting race to the bottom, often focusing on singular interaction. Devices need to manage functions from more than one input to be successful. In the potential wake of wearable fatigue, hearables—smart ear devices—could come to a user’s rescue. They also solve the accuracy problem that wearables are up against when measuring and monitoring movements. People on the ground in developing countries could create new connected solutions without an expensive dependency on the multinational corporates. Subversive industries with open tools could cross-pollinate. Smartphones and wearables could increasingly interact with a whole range of sensors that you never see and submit data to cloud data services you don’t own, but which act on your behalf. Fjord has been working with an energy provider to develop systems that learn from patterns in electricity usage. Behavioral change recommendations are made actionable, remotely via the smartphone. LOOKING FORWARD
  • 44. BE EFFORTLESS INTERACTION IN CONNECTED SYSTEMS 08 FJORD SUGGESTS Control and automation have no meaning without solving a real problem for the end user, whether it’s seeking climate control, peace of mind, community wellness, or assisted living. Wearable devices would be popular based on how cleverly they disguise their technology, or how naturally they design their interaction. Build in APIs that can flex around emergent patterns in the device ecosystem. • Consider how a service could become connected on its own terms, or how a service could be enhanced by an open standard such as integrating with OpenRemote or If This Then That. • Combine effortless interaction, specific sensing capability established by the device, the right communication protocol and the supporting cloud data analytics service, in order to be successful. • Piggyback on standardized eco-systems that have cracked this significant challenge already.
  • 46. THE SIXTH SENSE09 We’ve seen the sentiment—IWWIWWIWI or I Want What I Want When I Want It—in media, through Netflix-enabled binge watching, and now we’re seeing this trend mirrored in physical consumption. Look out, today’s efficiently reactive services will be eaten by tomorrow’s delightfully predictive ones. More services are starting to anticipate what a customer might want and act on it, using smart design and data mining, before the user clicks a button.
  • 47. THE SIXTH SENSE09 Being a design fortune teller isn’t easy. According to a recent study, there is a discrepancy between what retailers think their most valuable site features are (key-word search) and what their customers really want (inventory status). To satisfy users, companies need to be faster than instant: they need to be predictive. Amazon explores this with “anticipatory shipping,” a data-driven service that will ship products to “a final geographical area” without knowing the exact destination address in advance. This trend can be largely credited to Uber, which harnessed dynamic data research, independent workers, and mobile devices for a successful model. Their model easily spins off into other industries, hence startups like Square Order, and others that deliver everything from house cleaning to Manservants. Mobile has transformed on-demand requests, but the real impact of mobile has been on the supply chain, where independent workers are armed with smart phones and are app-enabled to help them schedule jobs, receive tasks and map where they’re going. WHAT’S GOING ON
  • 48. THE SIXTH SENSE09 As this new flurry of startups blur our online expectations with offline reality, users are looking for a personalized experience, with a guarantee of trust and certainty. With ubiquitous data collection at this level, it’s possible to build an entirely transparent and automatic service with a degree of personalization we’ve never experienced. Imagine the advantage of local businesses that are able to get you on-demand products and services, like TaskRabbit, which makes on-demand scheduling for just about any request possible. This strategy is likely to fill other local niche needs also, through the help of services like Dispatch, a startup offering developers tools so other companies can add real-time scheduling and arrival tracking to their own sites and mobile apps.” When local wisdom is combined with these new data tools, local businesses can harness their contextual awareness and deep understanding of their users’ culture to build crucial trust. LOOKING FORWARD
  • 49. THE SIXTH SENSE09 FJORD SUGGESTS • Instead of basing the designs on guesswork or snapshot analytics, the winning strategy is to design a system that gathers lots of data and then adapts to the emerging patterns arising from that data. • Those trusted with intimate data—such as healthcare providers or banks—must generate new value in order to avoid disintermediation. Businesses that want to be more predictive can devise a solid data strategy that addresses emerging data sources and the potential uses for that data. This strategy must also define ethical conduct for the use of that data. • Use tools that drive out radical ideas in order to move towards on-demand delivery (and its lovechild, predictive). These could include Role Play or Journey Mapping in a workshop. • Savvy retailers must use their physical locations in high-density areas and their close proximity to the customer as an advantage.
