4 Easy Steps to Gather, Author, Approve and Manage Requirements

In today's hyper-competitive environment, innovation and time to market are the key pillars for success. While software in applications and embedded systems is emerging as the primary agent for innovation, it is also adding complexity.

Modern innovations such as Agile have proven to shorten product delivery, but it comes with its own set of challenges. The ability to empower all stakeholders to collaborate in a unified development environment can solve many of these challenges and increase performance.

Join this webinar to discover how a unified tool can:
• Provide the ability to utilize Agile throughout the Product Lifecycle
• Positively impact innovation and time-to-market through collaboration
• Give you full traceability
• Provide the advantages of electronic signatures
• Highlight the benefits of centralized reuse and variant management

It’s an Agile World: Requirements at the Speed of Thought

In an agile world do we still need requirements? How do requirements change in a world of agile development methods? What skills and tools do business analysts need to thrive in this space?

Agile methodologies have gained a lot of traction in recent years. Better risk mitigation and increased visibility into development have converted many waterfall aficionados. Unfortunately, many agile pundits have singled out requirements as the source of bloat and inflexibility in the software development lifecycle, and some recommend not writing requirements at all.

The real goal of project managers, business analysts, developers, and users is project success. How, then, can business analysts work within agile methodologies and help them succeed? What do requirements look like without all of the overhead? What is the right balance between agility and rigidity? This presentation will answer these questions and provide tips and techniques analysts can use to add value in an agile world.


1. Participants will learn specific techniques used to solve common problems with requirements in agile development cycles.

2. Participants will have a better understanding of the benefits and common problems with agile approaches.

3. Participants will leave the session with an understanding of the differences between a traditional requirements approach and agile approaches.

CAISE'2017 (29th International Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering)

CAiSE 2017 - 29th International Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering
12-16 June 2017, Essen, Germany


Organizations (private or public) are entering in the digital world where real time data is available about their operations, their operating environments, third-party services offered to increase their performance as well as chances in the demands of their customers. This data abundance offers new opportunities but also raises new challenges for information systems. The systems have to exploit these data to help (networked-) organizations to decide and conduct appropriate business transformations necessary to guarantee their survival in a continuously changing world.

The digitalization of the world, the availability of the data in real-time and the increasing connections of things, IT-systems and organizations significantly increase the role of information systems in the organizations during the last decades. Historically, enabled by databases and file systems technologies supporting data storage and retrieval facilities, information systems have been proven instrumental in supporting management issues associated with the optimization and partial automation of processes and document flows in more efficient organizations.

With the internet and web technologies, together with an increased quality of the information, information systems have started to progressively be considered as a centre of profit, rather than as a centre of costs. The transformation of data into information intensive services creating new customer/client value has led private and public organizations to reshape their business value proposition. Architecture of information systems has evolved to enable increasingly interconnected service systems.

Today, technologies (like IoT and natural interfaces) are becoming more and more pervasive allowing to sense more and more data on all the facets of an organization and of its environment. The collection of data is no longer limited to its processes and information flows. Data is available about almost any relevant aspect of the organization. With the support of new computational and cognitive technologies for managing this abundance of data, the key challenge is to evolve information systems into smart systems. These systems have to be sufficiently agile to rapidly analyze, predict and manage the needed disruptive and incremental business transformations of operations. From a centre of profit, information systems are now becoming the centre for sustainability of the organizations.
