9780130282286: Requirements Analysis Architecture: from Business Views to Architecture

This book is a compendium of the various analysis techniques that have developed over the last thirty years, organized in terms of an architectural framework. Each technique has a place in the framework, and this placement enables coherent comparison of them all, identifying the strengths and weaknesses of each. Project development teams often spend too little time learning about the actual business problems a system must address. Without a clear understanding of these issues, organizations can easily develop off-target solutions, miss critical windows of opportunity, and get overrun by their competition. On the other hand, development teams that follow a proven process tend to get it right from the beginning, avoiding the costs of repairing or re-releasing software later in the life cycle. Requirements and Analysis is the process of defining your system. This involves obtaining a clear understanding of the problem space—such as business opportunities, user needs, or the marketing environment—and then defining an application or system to solve that problem. Rational Requirements and Analysis solutions help you build it right from the beginning. Foreword by Barbara von Halle, Spectrum Technology Group Inc.

From the Back Cover:

The complete guide to requirements analysis for every system analyst and project team member.

Thousands of software projects are doomed from the start because they're based on a faulty understanding of the business problem that must be solved. The solution is effective requirements analysis. In Requirements Analysis: From Business Views to Architecture, David C. Hay gives you a comprehensive overview of the world's best requirements analysis practices, organized coherently to help you choose and execute the best approach for every project. In addition, he guides you through the process of defining an architecture—from gaining a full understanding of what business people need to the creation of a complete enterprise architecture.

Practical solutions will help you:

  • Focus more clearly on the goals of requirements analysis
  • Represent the fundamental structures and systems environment of any enterprise more accurately
  • Identify key information processing gaps and discover which information technologies can best address them
  • Clarify the goals of your new system and reflect them more accurately in your models
  • Understand crucial people-related issues that impact requirements
  • Plan smooth transitions to new systems

Requirements Analysis: From Business Views to Architecture provides the complete process of defining an architecture—so that you can build a rock-solid foundation for your next software project.
