UX-Tool: Persona Modeler

This is supposed to be a central Tool for creating Personas, collecting Data about them and Usability Tests.

It seems to be a great Corporate Toy to make Stake Holders happy and quantify Product Development.

I think it makes the same Mistake as many Software-Tools for Software-Design: it emphasizes Data over Understanding.

Just like a JIRA-Report telling you that 87,93% of the Software is finished (which still doesn't help to understand what is really working and where the Problems are), this Tool throws a lot of fancy Data and Forms at you. But like I said before, it doesn't foster Understanding, especially not Empathy and the User's Learning Curve.

More Data is the natural Enemy of Clarity and understanding Relationships.
