ANSWER

SWEBOK stands for Software Engineering Body of Knowledge.  It’s the term used to describe the sum of knowledge captured within the literature that describes the profession of software engineering.  However, since it would be nearly impossible to put the full body of knowledge (all related literature) for any discipline into a single document, the IEEE Computer Society has developed a Guide to the Software Engineering Body of Knowledge. 

When someone refers to the SWEBOK, it is actually the guide that they are most often referencing.  The guide represents a distillation of all of the generally accepted principles from the entire body of knowledge.

The Guide to the SWEBOK contains 10 knowledge areas.

  • Software requirements
  • Software design
  • Software construction
  • Software testing
  • Software maintenance
  • Software configuration management
  • Software engineering management
  • Software engineering process
  • Software engineering tools and methods
  • Software quality

Do your homework prior to the business analysis interview!

Having an idea of the type of questions you might be asked during a business analyst interview will not only give you confidence but it will also help you to formulate your thoughts and to be better prepared to answer the interview questions you might get during the interview for a business analyst position.  Of course, just memorizing a list of business analyst interview questions will not make you a great business analyst but it might just help you get that next job.
