The Confusion of Business Rules and Requirements 

Hello, 

I have a simple question. 

Business Rules are Functional Requirements, well accepted. But please see both examples below and can you confirm that a Business Rule is not always a Functional Requirement?

The system has to retain data for 6 years( Non Functional Requirement), however, this is due to a business rule that relates to financial regulations. 

Another Example:

The system will send an email once the password expires after 60 days.. This is a Functional Requirement due to a Business Rule!!

I am just confused about the Science, it does not seem to me there is any standard to follow.

Too often, teams fall into a trap focused on requestors’ prescriptive requirements that are meant to serve as roadmaps for developers and testers. When you limit your view of requirements to this prescripti...

They say the best criteria of Business Analyst’s success are a happy customer (business) and a happy engineering team. But what does it mean? How can we break down happiness and measure it? These are precisely the questions my 8 BAs team and I tried to answer this year. The result was a surprisingly efficient pair of surveys we developed and ...
