The OneSpring iPhone & iPad SimDK for iRise

Customers can dramatically speed up time to market by visualizing with iRise and the OneSpring iPhone & iPad SimDK and ensure that what they are building hits the mark – the first time.

OneSpring®, the world's first Requirements Agency™, today announced the immediate availability of an updated version of the world's only visualization templates for Apple-branded mobile devices, including the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. OneSpring has pioneered combining the best practices in business analysis, user experience and visualization to provide a highly effective way to define software projects from mainframes to web sites to mobile application.  

The iPhone & iPad SimDK™ for iRise gives business analysts and user experience professionals a way to quickly prototype the look, feel and behavior of iPad applications, including screen transitions, typing, sliding, etc., before any code is written. This approach clarifies requirements, saves time during product ideation, and speeds up delivery of applications.
First created in 2008 to support the OneSpring Mobile Applications Definition Services, the iPhone & iPad SimDK for iRise has been used to help define a wide range of native iPhone apps for OneSpring clients in many industries, including finance, automotive, medical, employment and education. The toolkit provides comprehensive support for the design of custom mobile applications on the iRise enterprise visualization platform that empowers developers and stakeholders to see, interact with, and fully experience applications before any development.

"The iPhone & iPad SimDK for iRise was built using visual elements and artifacts directly from Apple's SDK", said Robert Grashuis, Chief Visualization Officer for OneSpring. "This enables business analysts and user experience designers who do not typically have access to Apple's SDK to visualize mobile applications early in the process."

"OneSpring is once again the first to market with a comprehensive toolkit for visualizing the latest mobile applications," said Mitch Bishop, CMO for iRise.

About iRise
iRise is the world's leading provider of enterprise visualization software for business applications. Visualization has become a critical competitive advantage for businesses to more effectively communicate their needs to technology teams and give everyone involved the ability to interact with and fully experience applications before they are built. Companies of all sizes like General Motors, UPS, FedEx, BP, Haworth, Manpower, M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, and hundreds of others use iRise to "test drive" their applications before building, which accelerates time to market, improves customer experience, and drives cost down. At iRise, we believe that by 2020, all business software will be visualized before being built, the same way that every car, airplane, and building is visualized today. Headquartered in El Segundo, Calif., iRise is backed by Morgan Stanley Venture Partners, and Deutsche Bank, and has sales offices across North America and in London.
