    How Logitech is Reimagining Tech Design for Students

    How Logitech is Reimagining Tech Design for Students

    Logitech released the Logitech Pen in January, one of the first mainstream tech tools designed for and with students. The Pen is a USI stylus for Chromebooks, designed for learning, so students can unlock their full potential.
    Tech is not often built with kids in mind (but it should be). It's built for adult and consumer use. Children have smaller hands, different developmental needs, etc. Logitech took all this into consideration when designing the Pen, with students at the center every step of the way.
    Grace Lee is Head of Design for Logitech for Education. She is a leader in design who is passionate about creating user-centric education products that delight students and teachers. I invited her onto the podcast to learn more about the design process and discuss the development process of the Pen and what it can tell us about the future of tech design overall.
    We discuss how the future of learning (and life) is increasingly digital and why bridging the 'awkwardness' gap is so important. We also explore where tech can be a comfortable extension of our real physical selves to build confidence.

    WalkMe Presents: Digital Adoption for Dummies

    WalkMe Presents: Digital Adoption for Dummies

    Simon Blunn is SVP and General Manager for the EMEA region at WalkMe, a pioneer of the digital adoption sector. In a nutshell, digital adoption is the process of helping businesses make sure people – both staff and customers – are actually using any new technologies those businesses have embraced as part of their digital transformations. Simon is also a veteran of the enterprise IT industry more broadly, whose career has encompassed stints at the likes of HP and Cisco.
    Simon joins me on Tech Talks Daily to talk about what digital adoption is, why it’s important to businesses, and how businesses can achieve true digital adoption. He also talks about WalkMe’s recently-released Digital Adoption For Dummies guidebook.
    We discuss the centrality of digital adoption. Simon shares his belief that although digital transformation is essential to businesses in all industries, the technologies embraced during these businesses’ digital transformations must be used and understood – this often isn’t the case! Replacing legacy technologies with swanky new software may actually make things more confusing for businesses’ staff, worsening their digital experience and driving down productivity. In short, achieving digital adoption is central to successful digital transformation.
    Simon also shares his view, if businesses want to retain and attract talent, an IT team that ensures a fuss-free digital experience is paramount. The pandemic-induced increase in home working means many staff are less concerned about whether their office has a coffee machine, and more concerned about whether they can easily use the applications and software necessary to do their jobs.

    SingleStore Creates 3-Minute Assessment Tool for Applications

    SingleStore recently launched the ‘Data Intensity Index’ tool to help companies understand how data-intensive their applications are. Using five variables, the Data Intensity Index gives you an assessment of what kind of data infrastructure an application will need to deliver the best user experience. This 3-minute assessment, spread over 10 questions, aims to understand how data is used by the application and calculate the intensity score.

    Shireesh Thota joins me on Tech Talks Daily to share the story behind the tool and the problems they set out to solve. I also learn more about the data intensity assessment and what it means if you have a high or a low score. We discuss why data-intensive applications need a modern data infrastructure and the five critical components that impact application performance
