From the idea to the public beta
Our information offer is enriched in many areas by overviews from which users can derive valuable information. When the concept for structuring the information was developed, the project team was tasked with covering the different information needs of the target groups as comprehensively as possible. The challenge was obvious and led to the question of how the many individual pieces of information could be combined into one unit. The answer to this question would have been a profile page listing all the data collected.
Based on a successful Proof of Concept ("PoC"), work was done on the first version of a Minimum Viable Product (MVP). Here it already became apparent that it would be rather difficult to realise a generic approach that would work equally well for all user interests - a "one size fits all" solution. Usability aspects were identified and technologically implemented through studies and with support from the immediate company network.
After the PoC, the first alpha version was realised and continuously developed. The functional scope of the first beta version was already very comprehensive and provided with a large number of innovative functionalities. Not all of them are immediately visible, because in addition to the graphical user interface, there is a powerful backend component that communicates internally and externally with many interfaces.
Three years passed from the first line of source code to the (software) launch. Many hundreds of man-days of project planning and development, quality assurance and optimisation have led to the result that is available to users of the platform today. We sincerely hope that we can convince you of our offer and would be pleased if you recommend us to others. We can already promise that we will continue improving the information offered. Views that do not offer the required ease of use will be revised or replaced by more usable ones.
Those who use DDH for their own research for the first time will notice a new way of compiling content. In all views, to which we attach central importance, we not only deliberately avoid visual elements but also try to guide users to the information of interest with minimalist but user-friendly functional elements. The following overview shows selected content pages, the associated information offered and which form of presentation was chosen as the standard. For users of our platform who prefer graphical operation as an alternative to the tabular presentation of information, we offer a corresponding function in many areas that can be used to switch to a visual view.
