ALISO VIEJO, CA--(Marketwired - June 04, 2014) - UST Global, an information technology solutions and services company for Global 1000 enterprises, is partnering with California State University, Fullerton and California Polytechnic University, Pomona to launch the UST Global UX Graphic Design Outreach Program. This program is a high impact learning experience to train students in the competitive field of graphic design.
About 100 graphic design sophomores, juniors and seniors from both schools teamed up to develop a user experience design project. The teams from both California State campuses were tasked with creating a working prototype app for a hypothetical client within a three-week window, choosing from three basic content categories. Each team was assessed on originality of concept, content, asset development, user experience, design, with the final presentation as proof of concept.
"UST Global UX Graphic Design Outreach Program is a great way for the technology industry and higher education to come together for the betterment of future generations," said Tony Velleca, Chief Information Officer for UST Global. "By reaching out to creatively-driven students instead of engineering talent, we get a different type of business solution that focuses on customer loyalty."
As part of this program, Mr. Velleca was invited to participate as a judge in this student competition, and the winning teams will be invited to participate in the newly founded UST Global internship program for graphic designers. He was also invited to speak as a guest lecturer to over 90 graphic design students at California Polytechnic University, Pomona.
"By partnering with a global company like UST Global, our students experience research, strategic, and visual concept development for large corporations in a learning-by-doing environment," said Chair and Professor Sarah A. Meyer (California State Polytechnic University Pomona).
"This new partnership is exciting. It challenges our students to apply their creative powers on grounded UX problems," said Vice Chair and Professor John T. Drew (California State University, Fullerton).
Following this challenge, UST Global plans to hire up to 75 of the participating students in the next two years. These students will be hired within the interactive media, design and visual engineering departments at UST Global.
UST Global is a leading provider of end-to-end IT Services and Solutions for Global 1000 companies. Headquartered in Aliso Viejo, California, UST Global has operations in USA, India, Mexico, Spain, UK, Malaysia, Philippines, and Singapore. UST Global is a technology leader with profound domain expertise across the following industries: Healthcare & Insurance, Retail, Financial Services, Transportation & Logistics, Manufacturing & Automotive, Telecommunication and Media & Entertainment.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

To paraphrase someone famous, "The definition of insanity is to do something the same way over and over again and expect a different result". Humans are creatures of habit and when it comes to storage, old habits die hard. Why do we continue to put our faith in legacy storage providers when they haven't invented anything new in decades. Sure, they re-badge their products every couple of years to make their messaging look modern, but ultimately, it's the same old stuff with a new coat of lipsti...
