The classroom setting is the traditional format, but just because it has been done this way in the past doesn’t make it the best choice.

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.

certified book smart, now what?

I am an engineer in electronics then I got my MBA (Marketing & IT)

I studied subjects like data mining, Business Intelligence, landed in a wrong job through placements in my college.

Right now working in HCL a reputed brand of system Integrator, all things sounds very rosy
