Landscape Architecture

The term "landscape" is familiar in urban planning, landscape architecture, and geography, but is not often heard.

In layman's terms, landscape is "the organic connection between people, nature, and artifacts." At Mogic, we use this concept as the basis for our IT services and company development. (The actual definition of the term "landscape" seems to vary from field to field.)

The reason why I bring up the idea of landscape when creating IT services is because IT development tends to be created in a point-by-point fashion, and I think it is necessary to think in a way that covers this tendency.

For example, the functionality to be used is compiled in the form of requirements definition, usability is created in the form of web design, and a place to organize information is created in the form of a database, which is then combined into a single system.

We also work on getting our products ranked higher in search engines, post them on social media, and send out press releases to let people know about them.

At first glance, all of those things seem important, but when you compare this to the construction of a public facility, something seems to be missing.

First, we will put together a list of uses that local residents might use, decide on the building's exterior and interior, and create a multipurpose room management office.

In order to publicize the new facilities to the community, priority will be given to posting them on bulletin boards, informing acquaintances, and placing them in circulars.

Is that really the only way to get a "view" that people will enjoy and use?

I feel something is missing.

Perhaps it seems to lack "something fun" that makes the people who live there feel their lives are richer.

I believe that one of the most important aspects of creating an IT service is how you build that part of the service.

Well, with IT, it is more of a cloudscape than a landscape.
