Presented by: IIBA

The exercise of requirement gathering and analysis for software applications has been around for quite some time.

However, do the conventionally used yardsticks and guiding principles of business analysis, still hold ground in the face of the disruptive mobile technologies today?

While they definitely do, there is a strongly-felt need, for an additional cognizance of the Mobility Factor.

The Mobility Factor drives several considerations while building a mobile solution.

These include the ones brought about by the unique characteristics of the mobile platform:

  • limited screen space,
  • availability of native device features,
  • the ‘on-the-move’ behavior of the user/device etc.

However, it is important to note that mobility is not just about making things work on the mobile platform; it’s also about doing them better as compared to conventional platforms.

Right from improving the workflows of the business process to capturing data with greater accuracy and delivering the best user experience, the Mobility Factor brings in umpteen opportunities for improvisation in the form of the mobile solution.

This webinar will discuss how you, as a Business Analyst, can style your work to incorporate the Mobility Factor. We will cover a range of mobile-specific considerations that can help you design your mobile solution to best address your business needs.

Upon Completion, You Will Understand:

  1. Leveraging features provided by the mobile platform
  2. Using mobility to enhance/improve the business solution
  3. Delivering a good user experience on the mobile device

Development Peer Review Is Effective
It Ensures A Higher Quality Product

Unfortunately, peer reviews of requirements documents often aren’t held when intended and those that are performed don’t always go as intended. Reviewers take only a superficial look and they often miss major defects that lurk in the specification, leading to delivery of a poor quality product.

In this webinar, Karl Wiegers, a best-selling author and speaker on requirements management and software peer reviews, gives practical advice to make requirements peer reviews more effective and encourage prospective reviewers to participate.

Listen in as Karl shares:

  • An overview of the peer review formality spectrum
  • Major characteristics of reviews
  • Five steps you can take to improve peer reviews of requirements

Presenter: Karl E. Wiegers (LinkedIn profile) Principal Consultant Process Impact has provided training and consulting services worldwide on many aspects of software development, management and process improvement.
