Software simulation tool integrated with IBM’s requirements product

Colin Smith Colin Smith Profile: Colin Smith


iRise Connect for IBM Rational Requirements Composer will soon be available. This integration, built on IBM’s open Jazz technology platform will make high-fidelity iRise visualizations instantly accessible from within IBM Rational Requirements Composer.

This integration is designed to eliminate wasteful cost overruns and delays by ensuring IT organizations are documenting and tracking the right business needs the first time.

The iRise solution gives business analysts and project managers the ability to build working simulations of software before development begins. (Read “Simulation software a cure for hospital’s requirements validation ills” to learn how one customer uses the product.)

IBM Rational Requirements Composer is a collaborative toolset that provides the ability to visually capture requirements information as process sketches, storyboards, user-interface sketches, and rich text to better articulate and communicate the context of requirements.

The combination of the two products gives requirements professionals the ability to embed live, high-fidelity software visualizations directly into the Requirements Composer product by leveraging iRise SmartView. Business analysts, business stakeholders, developers, projects managers, and other IBM users can interact with “live” visualizations and fully experience simulated pages, scenarios, and masters directly within the Requirements Composer environment.

The visualization assets are then published in real time from iRise to the Requirements Composer repository and can be linked into the web of requirements artifacts.
