MIT-E UX, MachNation’s IoT platform UX testing service, helps IoT platform vendors differentiate and market their platform and services based on the unique capabilities and usability strengths of their platform. MachNation shows these strengths by building a proof-of-concept (PoC) using the IoT platform vendor’s solution.
In MIT-E UX, MachNation developers
Collaboratively pick a relevant IoT proof-of-concept (PoC). The PoC should be something that a typical enterprise customer would do with a vendor’s IoT platform. It should be use case-specific and can include edge and cloud components.
- Identify the evaluation categories and tasks required to build the PoC. MachNation developers use the MIT-E methodology to identify the tasks and evaluation categories associated with building the PoC.
- Build the PoC twice. MachNation developers build the PoC twice – once using the vendor’s IoT platform and once using a competing IoT platform.
- Score each task and evaluation category. Using MIT-E metrics, MachNation developers score each task associated with building the PoC. The task scores roll-up to the evaluation categories to give us a fact-based picture about a platform’s capabilities and UX.
- Create marketing deliverables for our client’s lead gen campaigns. These deliverables show the capability and usability benefits of the vendor’s IoT platform compared to the competing platform. MachNation developers also produce a PowerPoint-style deck our customer’s internal use only. In that deck, we provide detailed feedback about areas of improvement associated with building a PoC.
IoT platform vendors find tremendous value in the documents that MachNation’s developers produce during the MIT-E UX process.
