Understanding Business Processes and Data Simultaneously
About this Resource
One of the key activities undertaken by business analysts is the gathering of requirements to understand the business needs that will drive a particular project or initiative. This should always involve documenting or 'modeling' the different aspects or 'views' of the organisation or department involved to provide a holistic view of the organisation's needs.
However it is often the case that business analysis professionals instinctively model requirements from only one perspective - the business. 'Data' is often considered to be the sole responsibility of IT.
In this paper, Joan Pournara discusses the reasons why business analysts must ensure they form a multi-dimensional view of any organisation and also provides some useful techniques for achieving this.
