Free eBook: Data-Informed Product Design
Designers must understand user needs to create any product. But what type of data should you look at? In her new book, Data-Informed Product Design, Pamela Pavliscak outlines a way to use data of all kinds to understand the relationship between people and technology. Generally speaking, big data is quantitative; it gives you the what, where, and when, while “thick data” provides the qualitative perspective—the how and the why.
Up until now, there hasn't been much information on how to combine quantitative big data with qualitative thick data. That's where this report can help. If you're involved in any aspect of product design, this is indispensable reading. It's useful, and we're pleased to offer it to you, for free! Get the free ebook now.
