iRise 11 adds simple, integrated requirements management

SEAMLESSLY COMBINE INTERACTIVE PROTOTYPING WITH REQUIREMENTS MANAGEMENT FOR THE BEST WAY TO GET YOUR REQUIREMENTS RIGHT.

We are pleased to announce the availability of iRise 11 in the cloud, arguably our biggest release ever!

iRise now allows you to easily capture, organize, and track your text requirements from ideation through to go-live.  It’s flexible enough to store user stories, epics, tasks, acceptance criteria, tasks and even attach entire specification documents, so no matter how your team organizes requirements, iRise can be the system of truth.

By associating requirements to the interactive prototypes and diagrams also created in iRise, team members and business stakeholders can accurately and quickly collaborate to validate business needs.

Integrations to all of the major ALM tools like JIRA, CA Rally, Microsoft TFS and HP ALM connect the entire development team, and provide end-to-end requirements traceability.

But don’t take our word for it. CIO.com just covered a new Seilevel report, which ranks iRise a top requirements management platform out of 185 tools evaluated. It’s noteworthy that the research pre-dated iRise 11.

Take a few minutes to watch the iRise Product Tour below, and schedule a demo for your team to see how easily iRise can fit into your processes and tool-set.

Integrate with the leading ALM platforms

iRise 11 provides real-time bi-directional integratons with the leading ALM platforms like JIRA, Rally, and Microsoft TFS.  This helps teams synchronize all the project information in real-time, across all of your tools – so every person on every team has the information they need. Watch the video below to see a demo of an iRise + JIRA integration in action.

 

iRise integrations help teams address a number of common challenges like keeping all of the early-stage definition artifacts—user stories, requirements, mockups, designs, process flows—coordinated and in sync.  It also allows the definition team to integrate these early-stage artifacts with the larger ALM processes like development and testing.

But beyond synchronization there’s a bigger challenge, – using just the text description of a requirement or the user story often isn’t enough information for the developer to really know what to build, or for the tester to know how to test it. In addition to the text description and other info they’re usually given, this integration is going to provide dev and QA with a link to a screen in the iRise prototype that shows them how it’s meant to be implemented.
