Conversion and Integration project 

 Hi All,

I just landed my 1st job as a BA on a contract for 1 year, the project is about Integration and conversion. The company just aquired another company, and they want to integrate and convert systems(financial Insts.). I have no experience in this as this is my first role as a BA. Please I need all the advise and help as I want to exceed expectations. Need all guidance.

 

Thanks in advance all.

Re: Conversion and Integration project 

Hi:

Focus on the unchanging buisiness essentials.  Postpone considering implementation considerations until the appropriate time (i.e., after you know the unchanging business essentials).

if you business is realtively simple, start with as is modeling of the essentials using a sequence oriented technique.  

If your business is complex, start with a high-level context diagram, and decompose downwards using essential data flow diagrams.  Then at the detail level, swtich over to a sequence oriented technique such as BPMN.

After you have completed process modeling, try data modeling.   Process drives data, so process model first.

Tony
