Customers—from emerging startups to giant public companies—constantly cite “ease of use” as one of the most appealing reasons why they chose Arena over other solutions. Arena’s nearly 1000 innovative global customers can attest to that.
Now with our Spring 17 release, our user interface has been fine-tuned to ensure an even more intuitive experience. With Arena’s product development platform, easy has just gotten easier.
These UX enhancements are beautiful. A customer was so overwhelmed with emotion by the intuitive elegance of our interface they called the front desk and literally couldn’t speak. They simply whimpered, “No words. There are no words. I wish I were a poet to describe your interface.” Another person called and said, “They move in herds. They do move in herds,” but I think they had the wrong number.
I thought I’d share my favorite inspirational quotes on the topic of beauty and simplicity.
“When I admire the wonders of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in the worship of the creator.” — Mahatma Gandhi
“Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson
“The more often we see the things around us - even the beautiful and wonderful things - the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds - even those we love. Because we see things so often, we see them less and less.” — Joseph B. Wirthlin
And here are my two favorite quotes on the beauty of simplicity.
“Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.” — Albert Einstein
“The definition of genius is taking the complex and making it simple.” — Albert Einstein
"Get off my plane" — Harrison Ford in Air Force One
"Get to the Choppa" - Arnold Schwarzenegger in Predator
The last two quotes have nothing to do with beauty and elegance — they are just simply cool.
These new UX changes will make using Arena and by extension your ability to manage your product lifecycle processes better, stronger, faster — like Steve Austin.
