Is there a word for congruence between a software platforms' purpose/structure and the actual experience of using it? For example, is there a word for the congruence of the purpose, structure, workflow of a collaborative learning software platform and the actual experience and process of using the platform for learning collaboration? Example: Our SaaS platform's deeper learning workflow is fully __________________ (congruent?) with the actual process of using deeper learning for professional growth.

    I thinka intuitive is the word you are looking for; change your sentence structure as necessary. – moonstar Jan 31 '16 at 17:28

    The model [or platform supporting the model] fully reflects/mirrors the actual process being modeled. – FumbleFingers Jan 31 '16 at 17:38

    You could use "consistent" if you don't want to change the rest of the sentence. – Myron Jan 31 '16 at 17:55

("Congruent" does fit as does "coherent")

In your context:

"Mimetic" means that a thing mimics another thing.

"Complient" means a thing that fits the requirements of another.

"Harmonious" means a thing works beautifully with another thing.

I'd suggest dropping "is fully" and replacing with "mimics", "matches" , or "copies", though. That is shorter and probably says the same thing you intend.

  • Thanks for this. Yes, but more....I am trying to get at the almost ontological nature of the connection. See above. All this thinking has helped me clarify my thoughts. Thanks! – Camille Feb 7 '16 at 17:49

"... fully aligned ... "

Although "coheres" is glorious!

You could say that they are in tune with each other:

in a state in which one thing agrees with or matches another —usually + with • His formal clothing was in tune with the occasion.
from m-w.com

This can also be stated as "in harmony".

For your sample, the first word that came to my mind was integrated:

With various parts or aspects linked or coordinated.
Oxford Living Dictionaries</sub>

It works nicely in your sample:

Our SaaS platform's deeper learning workflow is fully integrated with the actual process of using deeper learning for professional growth.

However, if you want a word more focused on the experience of the participant, you can borrow from virtual reality terminology: immersive:

seeming to surround the audience, player, etc. so that they feel completely involved in something:
an immersive theatrical experience
The new game is more immersive.
Cambridge Dictionary

Unfortunately, using immersive directly in your example is a bit awkward, so I have reworded it slightly:

Our SaaS platform's deeper learning workflow is fully immersive, enabling the actual process of using deeper learning for professional growth.

But if the exact wording is important, you could used immersed:

Our SaaS platform's deeper learning workflow is fully immersed with the actual process of using deeper learning for professional growth.

One thing fully coheres with another. The purpose of this software coheres with user experience.

  • Thanks, Lambie! This is getting at it and I am using this . It is close to the nature of what I am seeking. Actually, it is almost ontological ... the nature of one and the other are the same. the software, the process, and the purpose are coherent, actually, the same. Thanks again! – Camille Feb 7 '16 at 17:48
  • They meld into one thing. – Lambie Feb 7 '16 at 20:32
  • These downvotes are ridiculous: to be coherent with is to cohere. – Lambie May 31 '16 at 14:17
