 GenesisOne-Automatic Documentation For SQL Server

Business Analysts wear many hats in any organization: leader, analyst, negotiator, diplomat and on occasion a reluctant therapist. Regardless, BA’s are always on the front lines, working with competing sides of a potentially winning situation while keeping communication open and productive.

 

Developers operate in the software world, full of logical structures and requiring a very specialized knowledge. While it is possible to understand an organization’s business process, unless you have an extensive technical background, it is difficult to stay on top of what is going on in the development sphere. Most times things move forward well, but all too often there are rough spots to overcome in achieving deadlines and meeting stakeholder expectations.

 

Beginning with Microsoft SQL Server, GenesisOne is spearheading the development of cutting-edge software tools which aim to eliminate low level, time-consuming development tasks while at the same time provide valuable insight into the actual code being developed. The resulting output is easily understood by developers, project managers, stakeholders and, most importantly, Business Analysts. The result is increased understanding and significant reduction in development time on every iteration.

 

Typical issues nearly always revolve around misunderstood requirements. In any sprint, the general progression is:

  1. Document requirements for a feature

  2. Review with developers

  3. Explanation of technical approach (informal or documented)

  4. Development

  5. Testing

  6. UAT

  7. Deployment

Often it’s not until testing (step 5) is initiated that anything can be reviewed for meeting requirements. Even though the process is designed for this, the problem happens far too often, leading to cost and time overruns. Catching issues as early as possible is critical to any discipline.

 

Our technology helps monitor development (step 4) to see if the code meets requirements AS IT IS BEING DEVELOPED.

  • Catch code problems as the code is written

  • Reduce or eliminate bottlenecks

  • Spot problems before they affect timelines

  • Understand what the code is doing without knowing code

Because our tools are not cloud-based, all code is secure. In addition, the high quality documentation our tools generate can be used by anyone and shared across the organization, regardless of physical location.

A Comparison: CBAP®, CPRE-FL & PMI-PBA® With the addition of PMI’s new certification in Business Analysis in the name of PMI-PBA® the latest question amongst the Business Analysis community is what is the difference when compared to the existing Certified Business Analysis Professional (CBAP®) certification from IIBA, Canada and Certified Professional in Requirements Engineering-Foundation Level (CPRE-FL) from International Requirements Engineering Board, Germany. Also if one is looking at the certification which one should they explore? The US Bureau of Labor Stastics has projected that the number of BA jobs is set to increase by about 19% from 2012 during the year 2022 due to the criticality of BA as being a vital function that defines business requirements to shape and scope overall output of projects leading to a higher success rate for businesses. To ensure a better and a consistent quality of requirements in projects it thus becomes critical that the BA’s are skilled, knowledgeable in the best practices and industry standards. For this BA’s are required to acquire these skill sets through certifications offered by the 3 institutes mentioned above in the context of this article. For this important decision on the choice of the certification an individual needs a clear insight about the offerings and the scope that each certification offers. Let’s look at the highest level as to what each of them offers in their framework for individuals to look forward to: While PMI-PBA certification is more focussed on addressing BA in the context of project and program management with a clear orientation on requirements management and development, the CBAP shall look at
incorporating enterprise analysis in addition to requirements management. There is an existing, well-established body of knowledge developed by the IIBA, covering all areas of business analysis. The CPRE-FL shall lay special emphasis on covering the fundamentals of the Requirements Engineering domain, methodology and available techniques. Now with the coverage of contents addressed by the 3 certifications let’s look into the eligibility criteria and costing to be considered: So to conclude based on your goal choose the certification and if: • you are an individual wanting to continue to naturally update your skills in lines with project management explore the PMI-PBA certification. • you are open to exploring a wider ambit specialised to more BA activities then explore the CBAP certification. • you are willing to pay an in-depth attention to requirements then CPRE-FL might be a better bet!
