Overall Satisfaction with iRise

Use of iRise tool is dependent on a department or the team. It is not a mandatory requirement for all the business analysts to use the tool. As a business analyst, we have to work on projects that require web design or updates. We use iRise for creating screen prototypes that are web based designed. Creating interactive wireframe and screens help us expedite to finalize the requirements.
  • Drag and drop tool for designing simple to complex screen prototypes. Makes it easier to document requirements.
  • With interactive visual, it is easier to analyze different use cases and validate the usability of the screen designed.
  • For business analysts, it is a really helpful tool to document screen related requirements. The requirements package is much more effective when the iRise document is included on it. The iRise document can use used by both business and IT stakeholders. With a business team, it makes it easier to finalize the requirements. For the IT or development team, it makes it easier to understand the screen requirements for development.
  • When working on a complex page that has multiple sections with multiple views of each sections, it gets difficult to navigate to the section you want. It would be easier if there was a search functionality for searching the sections or components within the page.
  • Drag and drop controls to have more properties. e.g. for a button. It would be easier if the properties included BorderStyle, BorderWidth, Color, BackColor etc. Currently, these options are not available on the properties and we have to use the formatting tool bar.
  • I can only provide positive impacts of using iRise. Effective communication between technical and non technical teams leads to better understanding of the requirements by all teams. Use of iRise supports the team to meet the team to meet the project plan.
  • Using iRise prototype to train users before the system is physical, which saves downtime later when the system is in place.
iRise is well suited for web based software. It is very effective when communicating web based requirements between business and development team. iRise tools works really well when the project is targeted for a team. Once the requirements are finalized, the business team can actually start training their team members for better earlier understanding of the changes in the business process. This enables the effective use of application post deployment and will minimize post deployment change requests.
