I would like to get some input and feedback from anyone who has had professional experience using iRise, a prototyping and visualization tool. I would especially love to hear feedback in response to the following questions:

  • How was iRise used in your organization, for example: requirements gathering, prototyping, visualization etc.
  • Did you use the iRise Process and Methodology and what was your experience
  • How did iRIse impact your work flow and/or creative methodology


My experience with iRise is a great tool on its own; lending itself useful in the capturing and visualization of requirements and as a collaboration tool for sharing ideas with customers. However, I am not too keen on using the iRise process and methodology for using the software. I would love to hear from those of you who have used the software and the iRise process and methodology.

The iRise Process and Methodology whitepaper posted on the iRise website was created to provide the general market a baseline process, methodology, and associated best practices for application visualization using iRise.  It is not intended to be a prescriptive solution for all companies, projects, or individuals.  Instead, it should be used as a reference to help guide companies, projects, and individuals to get the most value out of iRise given their specific environment and conditions.  

For example, I have seen the iRise Process and Methodology successfully integrated into Agile and Waterfall methodologies, for BA and UX roles, and for new custom development and package application enhancements - even within the same company.  In each case, the core approach that the company, project, or individual used before iRise remained largely the same, but the activities and deliverables were augmented by iRise to produce dramatically different results.

Given that you are already experiencing great value with iRise in the context of your current activiites, I would be interested to know what particular goals that you are trying to achieve by referencing the iRise Process and Methodology and what particular problems you have encountered in using such reference.  The answer may be that you should continue doing what you are doing or that you only need to make a few tweaks to get even more value from the product.  In either case, I would never advise that you simply "follow" the iRise Process and Methodology - since it is not intended for that purpose.
