Preview Course Materials Course Outline

Gathering requirements for BI and analytics systems is more difficult than for operational systems. Without the specifics of business transactions, scheduled reports, and prescribed business rules, it is difficult to know where to start and how to proceed. The skill set for the BI requirements analyst includes techniques to identify requirements, tools to manage requirements, and checklists to ensure completeness.

Requirements processes vary widely for BI and analytics projects. Waterfall, iterative, agile, and DevOps projects each approach requirements differently. More established BI objectives such as dashboards, scorecards, and OLAP have tangible business requirements, while those for advanced analytics applications can be vague and elusive. A skilled requirements analyst must embrace a range of requirements processes from elicitation to discovery.
