Re: What types of software tools do you use? 

 The BI Companion - web based, no installation, fast, OLAP cubes,reports, dashboards, Drag-and-Drops, easy for use..

The next step would be the BI Portal, which includes all that + report server companion, report viewer, interactive dahsboards, data mining companion, charts and maps

Both have free trial versions, downloads from the official site of the developer, support and help if needed

Re: What types of software tools do you use? 

I use MS Word for my intial discovery document with MS Visio for diagrams. For requirements i often start with spreadsheets, but our official tool at work is DOORS.

It does offer good traceability but is fiddly to use. The worse feature is the method for adding a row. This is one of the most common things we do, but its a real pain.

I think the designers need to spend more time with their customers!

We also use Visio for proces maps, its OK but if you need to move things, watch out!

I love Bizagi at home. Its so easy for process maps, Microsoft look out! more tools nedd to be designed this way.

For requirement discovery  meetings, well its the good old paper and post it notes.

whatever you use, think of your audience.

  • SOFTWARE: MS Visio, PURPOSE: Process Models, Use Case Models, Entity-Relationship Diagrams, .

 

As consultants, we stick with Office and Visio, as above. Our standard approach does not involve prototyping, but will use clients' tools as needed.

 

Is there any specific reason for why you choose to use Visio for both DFD and ERD.  Other people preffer to use different software for ERD (Erwin)..

What Does Success Look Like? I challenge Business Analysts to view requestors’ requirements as an opportunity to define success. 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 ...
