Overview

Cisco's Enterprise Data and Analytics (EDnA) is a web tool used internally by employees to access and analyze collected data from various platforms deployed by the company, such as Snowflake, Hadoop, HANA, and Teradata. As the sole, specialized UX designer for this project, I was tasked with revamping the user experience and visual design of the web tool to bring it up to date with contemporary web design standards.
