No less than three OneSpringers presented at the iRise User Group Conference in Washington, DC on October 28, 2010.
Minimum Data Set Bridging Boundaries through Visualization
Shaun Ferris, Senior Technical Advisor, Agriculture (CRS); Scott McDowell, Chief Innovation Officer, OneSpring LLC
Today people in the developing world have access to new, innovative, and affordable information and communications technology (ICT) that just a few years ago was non-existent or out of reach. CRS has been active in using these technological advances to manage and improve the quality of its services. By taking advantage of the rapid exchange of data and information that ICT allows, CRS has been able to adjust its programming to improve impact and scale programs to reach more people at a lower cost per person. This case study is a full life cycle illustration on how CRS utilized Pre-Visualization, Visualization and the iRise product suite to reduce time to market, cut development processes by 60-70% and create a triadic relationship between the business, user and technology stakeholders.
Hitting the Bull’s-Eye
Pre-Visualization for Enterprise Project Definition
Robert Grashuis, Chief Visualization Officer, OneSpring LLC
iRise is proven to greatly reduce costly IT project re-work. With enterprise projects that have even greater depth and breadth, the visualization that is created to support communicating the application definition can become a project within a project. We discussed and demonstrated the benefits of Pre-Visualization, a key component of their Stream Process® that allows the project team to more effectively plan and manage the definition of enterprise-scale visualizations.
Building teams for visualization success
The first step to adoption strategy
Laurie Gray, Sr. Visualization Consultant, OneSpring LLC
The benefits of visualization using tools like iRise are well established.
Teams are defining more thorough interfaces faster than ever before. One
challenge faced by teams is determining the right opportunities to introducevisualization.
OneSpring has observed that project success – and subsequent adoption of visualization processes – is greatest when visualization is implemented in teams that are presently existing in a state of mutual cooperation around a common goal, or who are nearing this capability. This presentation outlines those factors to look for when considering the introduction of visualization in the enterprise.
