Hortonworks - Platform Product Design

Hadoop Configuration is complex. These images show the progression (reverse order) of the many required input fields Admins have to populate. The user experience is laborious, difficult to navigate, and lacked context.

Built and lead a team that works on unifying the UX across Hortonworks' 23+ components. The goals are to increase user engagement while making the storage, access, and management of both data at rest and data in motion easier.
