Dean - we have't used iRise, but have been using Axure as a rapid
wireframing/prototyping tool. It's been a valuable tool in, as you
say, exploring scenarios. Our UX lead has been using it to help the
business analysts on our agile team as they flesh out the story
narratives, forming their own little iterative cycle prior to coding.
Axure isn't as sophisticated as iRise -- the documentation says it
manages requirements documentation, but not with any degree of
automation. I spent the afternoon looking at iRise and we will
definitely try it as well.
Good luck - report back on experiences if you do decide to give it a try.
