Inteq's Business Systems Analysis Training Course
Business Systems Analysis
Inteq's Business Systems Analysis training course provides the critical thinking skills, conceptual knowledge and best practice techniques to rapidly discover, thoroughly analyze and accurately specify business and user requirements.
Inteq's Business Systems Analysis is about business requirements - from a business perspective - and is seamlessly integrated and cohesively organized around Inteq's model-driven analysis framework for delivering agility, precision and consistency in business and systems analysis.
Until now, text oriented analysis (bullet lists, indented outlines, etc.) prevailed as the primary technique to identify, analyze and specify business system requirements. Text oriented analysis, however, is resource intensive. It often lacks standardization, depth and precision.
Some organizations have attempted to adapt technical design methods (class diagrams, object interaction diagrams, etc) to business systems analysis. Technical design methods intimidate and alienate the business community. As a result, stakeholders disconnect from the analysis process.
These approaches fail to deliver. In today’s fast moving, highly competitive, complex business environment organizations can no longer afford the costly mistakes, operational inefficiencies and lost opportunities that result from superficial analysis and ambiguous requirements.
Inteq’s model driven analysis approach and best practice methods utilize a cohesive set of intuitive business oriented visual diagrams (e.g. process maps, activity diagrams, etc.) to rapidly identify, critically analyze and clearly specify forward facing business and business systems requirements. The result: breakthrough speed, accuracy and depth of business systems analysis. [Read More]
