In late May, President Obama issued a new directive to federal agencies: Take your applications to where your constituents are: on the Web and to mobile platforms. Of course, as any IT chief can tell you, that’s easier said than done, especially when the deadline is just months away.
So to assist federal agencies in economically creating new software and mobile apps that work right the first time, iRise has announced both a new product— OnDemand for Government—and a free, live webinar on July 25th that will show attendees how to use iRise visual prototyping technology to help government develop more user-friendly applications on an accelerated schedule.
The new iRise OnDemand platform—a unique visualization technology found exclusively in other iRise offerings—make it easy to create software applications that satisfy government constituencies. “If all government agency CIOs used visualization for requirements definition for new IT programs, federal software development would be much faster, far less expensive, and would meet or even exceed user expectations,” says Jim Flyzik, CIO Magazine hall-of-famer and co-head of The Flyzik Group, a consulting company that provides advice on government IT issues.
The new product and the webinar are designed to help government agencies to avoid getting caught between diminishing resources and the increasingly high user expectations for government agencies created by the “consumerization of IT,” two factors that could make it difficult for agencies to comply with the recent Obama directive.
