Re: [newtech-1] iRise is NOT a prototype!

From: Vicky H.

iRise is a Simulation tool -and NOT a Prototyping tool -a designer would use a prototype/wireframe tool to mock up in (something like Axure, Visio, Photoshop, etc.) and then your coders/programmers would take over and translate the (web or software) designers' design into code (or they themselves could be doing the design work as well as in addition to the coding work).

but, with iRise you can have an accurate creation/simulation (a simulated product that everyone can SEE and AGREE -before it goes to the designers/coders and before you might have to have rework -with iRise, the promise is that there is no rework!

So, basically iRise is capable of creating the simulated scenarios that are created in its simulator engine/tool and thus better assist your coders/designers with transferring their "visual experience" of iRise into a prototype -utililizing additional tools like the products/tools I've mentioned above (not iRise) -to get your wireframes established for your coders to build into code (not using iRise).

iRise should be great for non techies, BAs, RAs, IAs, -and me!  ;-)

I can point to our work in terms of developing wireframes... the general stew is:

for the Mac folks.

1) OmniGraffle
2) Skitch (ask me for an invite, it rules)
3) Illustrator

for the PC folks.

1) Photoshop
2) Illustrator
3) Visio

I certainly hope they didn't use iRise to prototype their own site? I
looked around for ages trying to find information on system
requirements and pricing to no avail.
After some research I discovered that the entire business model seems
to be built on dealing with huge (crusty) agencies that cater to the
fortune 100 of crusty companies. Prices for the prototyping tool
ranging from $50k to $250k.

A quarter of a million dollars later, you can start building a
prototype, that you can hand over to the mysterious java guys to
"compile"?

That's is so backwards, it's not even funny any more.
