  2. 2. “‘User experience’ encompasses all aspects of the end-user's interaction with the company, its services, and its products.”-Jakob Nielsen and Don Norman “User experience is the overall effect created by the interactions and perceptions that someone has when using a product or service.”-Leah Buley “User experience (UX) focuses on having a deep understanding of users, what they need, what they value, their abilities, and also their limitations. It also takes into account the business goals and objectives of the group managing the project. UX best practices promote improving the quality of the user’s interaction with and perceptions of your product and any related services.”-usability.gov What is User Experience?
