Company: Ibexa - eZ Systems
Ibexa's eZ Platform v2 & v3 releases main goal were improving and fixing developer experience. The new stack adopted meant faster development time, hence internal sprints and releases would be “heavier” in terms of new feature additions and improvements. The Product Management team needed a new design process that answered to this new reality. At the same time there were inconsistencies across interfaces, that demanded a new redesign that would facilitate and simplify users’ flows and their tasks.

eZ Platform is a Digital Experience Platform (DXP) created by Ibexa that helps B2B companies to stay relevant and succeed by transforming traditional sales strategies into frictionless buying experiences. This DXP is ideal for large enterprises working on complex projects requiring several languages, with numerous sites, and multiple content types.
Ibexa's eZ Platform offers the ability to build interactive sites, pages and views and deliver multisite, multichannel and multilingual websites and apps. It gives organizations the control to create, and structure their content, reuse it and present it differently from a single location. It also provides a granular configurable system for user permissions, which allows organizations to set specific access rights for users and roles across all features.

One of the main focus was design consistency across the screens and interfaces in order to build usage patterns that will facilitate users life and build-up familiarity with the tool, adoption of best-practices for usability, simplification of the interfaces with less clicks to fulfill editorial tasks... and many others.
