Today, we’d like to take a moment to remember Mr. Steve Jobs.
His passion for simplicity of design has made significant inroads into our corner of the world, institutional money management.
Now as opposed to being an exception, iPhones and iPads are the tool of choice for portfolio managers and anyone who spends extensive time out of their office visiting clients.
Job’s vision of technology has elevated the playing field and changed the way the world interacts with technology.
For firms like ours, elegant software design is an underlying tenet of our iPM platform. Not only should the software be “intelligent,” it should be easy to use and visually appealing.
Jobs supposedly was once asked early on in his career about documentation for his software. He responded, “If your software needs documentation it isn’t user friendly, i.e. not that good.”
This is what we strive for in our ongoing design and roadmap for iPM.
