QUALITY REQUIREMENTS FOR INFORMATION SYSTEMS – PART 1 – FIVE FUNDAMENTAL CAPABILITY TYPES
About the Presentation
Audience:Business analysts and managers, project teams
Presented by:Dan Tasker, Senior Business Analyst, Author, Mentor
An information system couples a database management system, that provides generic data maintenance functionality, with add-on capabilities specific to a business domain. In his Requirements in Context series of articles published in ModernAnalyst.com, the author introduces five fundamental capability types for classifying business domain-specific functional requirements.
In this presentation those five types are introduced and shown to support the elicitation and documenting of Stakeholder (high-level) requirements. An example HLR based on one of these capability types will be discussed in relation to the BABOK® requirement quality characteristics.
