UX Research

User experience (UX) refers to how people interact with technology in their daily lives. UX research refers to research for creation, testing, and improvement of experiences that are not only practical but also intuitive and enjoyable for users. It plays a pivotal role in developing innovative digital products, from specialized workplace tools like organizational decision support systems and robotics to everyday consumer items such as smart appliances, websites, and apps. As an interdisciplinary field that draws from business, design, and technology, UX research has a broad impact on product innovation in various industries including Healthcare and Medical Services, Information Technology (IT), Financial Services and Banking, Retail and E-commerce, Hospitality and Tourism, Entertainment and Media to name a few.
