CloudGenix: Software-Defined Networking Details

View Case Study


CloudGenix enables admins to configure, monitor and control networking sites worldwide with one software application.



CloudGenix had the vision to leverage multiple new technologies in the software-defined networking space and, in partnership with DesignMap, created a system that provides incredible benefits to network administrators and businesses, far beyond what current tools offer.

CloudGenix's technology enables admins to configure, monitor and control networking sites across the world without the use of command line interfaces, all from a single software application. The ability to directly use business language to set policies for application bandwidth usage and security has eliminated the need to write complex protocols.

Yet, the value of these technologies does not become real without considering how network administrators and business stakeholders communicate. We translated that into a product design by working with the actual users and their workflow. By understanding these contexts and developing a clear system architecture plus powerful visual interfaces, the CloudGenix product has fundamentally changed the way teams configure and monitor wide area networks. It opens the door to building more robust networks for improved efficiency and security while reducing the risks typically associated with more complex network architectures.

DesignMap and CloudGenix's designers and developers worked in close collaboration early and often delayed churn and turn-around time during the design process. Design iteration is almost immediate — concepts were proven quickly through rapid prototyping.

When developing the front end, the designer and developer work side-by-side to construct a living style guide. UI assets are extracted from the detailed design files and delivered together with production-ready code.



Why this project is worthy of a UX Award:

CloudGenix and DesignMap had the vision to leverage multiple new technologies in the software-defined networking space to create a system that provides incredible benefits to network administrators and businesses, far beyond what current tools offer.

CloudGenix's technology enables admins to configure, monitor and control networking sites across the world without the use of command line interfaces, all from a single software application. The ability to directly use business language to set policies for application bandwidth usage and security has eliminated the need to write complex protocols, enable easy troubleshooting and setup.

CloudGenix and DesignMap's ability to work efficiently through close collaboration, live field tests with potential customers, and rapid prototyping enabled the team to bring a beautiful working product to field before their competitors.

This product could change the way companies use the software defined wide area networks (SDWAN) market. By remotely and centrally monitoring and accessing network traffic, companies could significantly eliminate the complexity of visiting sites physically, improve efficiency, and reduce cost.
