iRise Launches Updated Platform to Accelerate Definition and Delivery of Better Software across Organizations

iRise®, the global leader in collaborative visualization software, today announced the launch of iRise 8.11.2. The platform’s latest upgrade includes key features that streamline the process of visualizing mobile, web and desktop apps for all stakeholders in the software development life cycle (SDLC). The upgrade introduces new features to the platform including Web Importer Plugin, Project Estimator and Revision Manager as well as usability enhancements to facilitate the building of simulations and creation of reusable assets.

iRise 8.11.2 represents a key breakthrough for companies who want to vastly accelerate the SDLC from end to end,” said Maurice Martin, president, COO and founder, iRise. “The new features we’ve launched are intended to benefit all members of the application development team – project managers, business analysts, designers, developers and quality assurance professionals – and make building software more efficient through collaborative visualization; simulations that look and feel like the final application.”

The three stand-out features of the new upgrade include:

Web Importer Plugin

For the first time, The Web Importer Plugin allows customers using iRise Studio to import existing web pages directly into the iRise simulation. With a single click, customers can bring in the content of a web page as a high fidelity prototype. This feature is most pertinent if a business analyst or designer wishes to change part of a web or mobile application. Once they have the simulation complete, developers can use iRise CodeGen™ to jumpstart standards-based code generation. The Web Importer Plugin and CodeGen dramatically increase productivity and accelerate delivery.

Project Estimator

Inaccurate estimations are usually the culprit for projects either failing, being delivered late, overrunning budgets, or missing required functions. Designed primarily for project managers at large organizations, iRise launched the Project Estimator to automatically generate industry standard Function Point counts based on simulations. Function Point Analysis is a proven method for measuring the size and complexity of a software product. It provides an objective, comparative measure that assists in estimating project cost, managing scope, and measuring productivity.

Revision Manager

For project managers, developers and quality assurance teams, the Revision Manager automatically captures revisions (or snapshots) of a project on a scheduled or manual basis. Customers consistently have a record of each version of the prototype and can revert back to previous versions. The ability to compare against previous versions enables innovation by providing the freedom to experiment in a risk free environment. If a new simulation does not work simply revert back to the previous version. Also, if stakeholders do not agree with a revision, customers can recall previous versions and start again.
