What Is It?

Help us define the information architecture of BMC Capacity Optimization!


The BMC UX team seeks your experience in organizing the content for BMC Capacity Optimization so that we can make our application easier to understand and use.

In this online UX exercise, you will be provided a list of cards as well as pre-defined categories that you can put the cards in. You are also provided an option to create your own categories if any of the other pre-defined categories don’t fit. You will then answer a couple of questions after the card sorting task.

You’ll find a link to the online survey/exercise at the end of this post. The activity shouldn't take longer than 10 to 15 minutes to complete.
