I here this every day. If you don’t have recent experience as a developer you are not qualified to gather the detailed business requirements.
How can I prove that I can do this without an opportunity to show my work?
Business analysts come from a variety of backgrounds. Some have a vast knowledge of intricate software coding and developing. Others have more of an overall understanding of how software and an IT departments function.
Can you inform me what’s the difference between a systems analyst and a business analyst? Thank You.
If you are visiting a foreign country, where you do not know the language, would you prefer to visit with an interpreter (after gaining an overall knowledge of what the country is like and learning a few key foreign phrases), or would you prefer to take the time to immerse yourself in the culture and language of the country before setting foot on its soil?
I am trying to gain enough technical awareness to assist in the gathering of requirements for an enterprise information system.
How to gather requirements for an enterprise system
One of the steps a business analyst uses in offering sound solutions to a business problem is the requirements phase.
This process is much like mining for gold in knowing how to determine what requirements are truly valuable and important, like real gold, and knowing what to throw back, as fools gold.
This phase consists of eliciting (gathering) the requirements, analyzing the requirements and documenting the requirements.
Software is everywhere in our lives today. From your online banking system to your microwave oven, software applications play a vital role in everyday life. Why do we rely so heavily onÂ software applications? The reason is that they achieve a goal or solve a problem for us. In other words, they have properties that fill a need for the user.
A Requirement is the description of the properties of a product that satisfy the consumer’s need.
Put a different way: A Requirement is a condition or capability needed by a stakeholder to solve a problem or achieve an objective (IIBA, 2008)
