Diferenças culturais brasileiras e suas implicações na experiência do usuário em interfaces web

Abstract in Portuguese
Possuir uma interface que oferece uma boa experiência do usuário tornou-se um fator crítico para o sucesso em sistemas de informação. As diferenças culturais, no entanto, podem ter um impacto significativo em sua experiência, mas raramente são levadas em consideração durante o projeto interface e avaliação, particularmente no Brasil, um país multicultural de dimensões continentais. O objetivo deste trabalho foi investigar se as diferenças culturais entre as cinco macrorregiões socioeconômica do Brasil são profundas o suficiente para afetar a experiência do usuário em interfaces baseadas na Web e, em caso afirmativo, como. Foi realizado um experimento com 110 participantes, 22 por região, em cinco capitais brasileiras: Belém, Salvador, Goiânia, São Paulo e Porto Alegre. Comparou-se as diferenças culturais identificadas pelo VSM, instrumento de mapeamento de dimensões culturais criado por Hofstede, com o desempenho em tarefas e a avaliação, utilizando o questionário de experiência de uso QUIS, de um sistema bancário fictício Internet. As diferenças culturais foram identificadas e correlacionadas com as diferenças na experiência do usuário, particularmente no que diz respeito à quantidade de informação e cores exibidas na interface.

Abstract in English
Having an interface that provides a good user experience has become a critical factor for success in information systems. Cultural differences, however, may have a significant impact in this experience, but are seldom taken into account during interface design and evaluation, particularly in Brazil, a multicultural country with continental dimensions. Our goal was to investigate whether the cultural differences between the five socio-economical macro-regions of Brazil are profound enough to impact user experience in web-based interfaces and, if so, how. An experiment with 110 participants, 22 per region, was conducted in five Brazilian state capitals: Belém, Salvador, Goiânia, São Paulo and Porto Alegre. We compared the cultural differences identified by VSM, a cultural dimensions mapping tool created by Hofstede, with performance on tasks and user experience evaluations, using the QUIS questionnaire, of a fictitious Internet Banking System. Cultural differences were identified and correlated with differences in user experience, particularly in regards to the amount of information and colors shown in the interface.
