In most companies, a developer's time and skill is in high demand, and when we are prototyping UIs for embedded devices we don't always want to engage a developer's deep technical expertise. Unfortunately, though, many UI development tools require a high level of technical prowess, leaving designers and marketers reliant on a developer's schedule and skill set.
This isn't the case with Crank Software's Storyboard Suite. While Storyboard can be used to design and develop very complex UIs for embedded devices, it can also be used to demo and prototype UIs before pulling in development resources for production applications.
When Green Hills Software wanted to showcase the capability of their software architecture for securing IoT devices based on their INTEGRITY RTOS, their Marketing team created the UI for a secure payment credit card demo. They were able to design and build the UI thanks to the ease of use of Storyboard Suite's tools, and their development team were able to add their programming expertise later in the design cycle. This allowed the Marketing team to move forward with the design and prototyping stage without having to wait for development resources.
