We partnered up with EQT Ventures backed Unomaly to reimagine their algorithmic software monitoring platform. Unomaly learns the normal state of your software systems and creates a benchmark for normal, enabling you to detect any change to prevent breaches.
The main issue with the Unomaly web app was its navigation system, especially how users search and find systems, groups and situations. We managed to turn Unomaly into a modern web app capable of showing all user relevant information in just one page. In doing so, we reduced the number of pages in the app from a staggering +20 pages to one single page. Other than it taking much less time to make an action in the app, users won’t get lost within the many pages that make up the app.
Our goal was to make Unomaly a single page app. We tried to solve this with three different approaches. The first approach revolved around implementing a sidebar that could hold all groups and systems, enabling users to navigate the app by just a mouse or track pad. The second approach revolved around a heavily type based navigation system, using filters and smart drop downs to guide the user. The winning solution ended up becoming a hybrid of the two explorations, with a persistent sidebar and powerful search bar.
Our next challenge was to design an simple Admin reporting screen. Our solution enabled Admins to manage their systems without leaving the app. By toggling into the Admin view you have the power to group, regroup, sort, filter and favourite systems to better navigate your software infrastructure. In addition, we made it possible to personalise your dashboard by simply dragging and dropping.
We introduced a new design language to make Unomaly even easier to navigate and scan for information. We also established an improved design system which unified the app’s UI component library, making it easier for Unomaly to continue to build upon the platform without having to worry about getting off track.
