In this video Unilever Global CIO Willem Eelman talks about how the “consumerization of IT” trend has put IT under pressure to deliver well designed software that requires little or no training, at speed. iRise has helped transform software delivery at Unilever by allowing users to simulate and test-drive software before they build it. The use of iRise on strategic projects has reduced rework by 50% and overall project costs by 20%, while helping drive increased user adoption and satisfaction.
The implementation of an iRise requirements visualization Center of Excellence requires executive leadership from the top, which is what Willem has done. Unilever has made a decision to standardize on iRise for all critical development projects and is empowering all business analysts and designers to be visualizing early in the development life cycle.
The iRise Enterprise Platform has impacted not only software definition and design, but then entire SDLC – from concept to design to training and development.
