Collaboration – The rise of our Bangkok Team!
Areas of development!
- Certified NDBX Reviewer: This program introduces the attendees to the art of reviewing a complex application with a clear focus to ensure not only compliant usage of the NDBX design system, but also usability and potential accessibility issues. In the last areas, the participants should at least have foundational knowledge and the opportunity to loop in additional experts, if needed.
- Transition to Figma Design Library: One of the biggest challenges of the upcoming year is the migration of a new tool stack around design and design management. From a current solution incorporating the software Sketch, InVision and Abstract we will move to a new, more efficient and flexible solution, called FIGMA. This comes with significant changes in the area of design, management of branches, the collaboration of designers and FE engineers and much more.
- Allianz One Design System: The successor of the NDBX Design system, Allianz One, is already in the starting blocks. Design explorations and foundational work in the area of design components are finished and a new Allianz design expression will be rolled out soon. Therefore the Bangkok design team got an extensive introduction to the new Design language of Allianz.
- ABS Airwave: The ABS airwave platform can be considered the mother of all Allianz applications, hosting all relevant customer data. Managing this data on a highly complex interface is expressed within a very specific application and requires an excellent UX design understanding. The Bangkok team learned the specifics of this complex application in a dedicated training session.
The possibility of growth!
As an initial step, we want to intensify the virtual collaboration by having joint team meetings addressing new agenda points and improvement potential.
Secondly, we are striving to put the physical exchange regularly and give further team members on both sides the opportunity to work abroad for some weeks or even months. This needs to be prepared carefully and aligned with corresponding Allianz work and travel initiatives and regulations.
As a third point we deeply believe in services we might establish together with the Bangkok team that might be offered in the area of content creation, design government, support for journeys from BMP and other OES or even industrializing the process of converting design components and patterns from former to newly established standards. We believe in the power of intercultural exchange, diversity and the idea of combining complementary strengths within this joint venture.
It's time to wrap up for today. We would like to thank Michael and our amazing Bangkok team for all the support and feedback. Stay tuned to our blog and LinkedIn page for future updates.
