I was working on a product which deals with data of companies where there are lot of views and lot of data. At this point my client wanted it to be responsive on mobile and tabs and ipads. How do i make it responsive. Should i remove some elements from website and optimize it to mobile,tablets or what would be the solution. Has anyone else faced this type of solution.
Content display has to follow a mobile first philosophy. However, I would recommend looking at Google analytics first to understand if users who will see this content are using a mobile device. if they are, you want to make sure mobile content is not a "subset" of desktop content. Try not to remove elements on mobile.
Like someone said- cards are a good philosophy- they are very mobile friendly.
Generally you must redesign the whole thing into a mobile view (medium or small). You should remove some elements, aggregate functions and so on. A more specific question and a mockup would be GREATLY useful
It depends on the type of content. If it's a dashboard type display, I think the easiest way to create a responsive design is to break up the UI elements into modules/groups. There's a reason 'tiles' and 'cards' are very popular these days. You can lay them out in a manageable way on many screen sizes. A desktop can display a grid. As the screen shrinks the columns are reduced until on mobile it's effectively a list.
Without designs (current design or prototypes of reactive designs) or any more idea of what the "data" consists of or how it's displayed to users, there's not much help anyone can give.
