Analysis Tools for Non-UI Requirements Gathering

Hi Everyone,

In my current company X I am Leading the analysis efforts around retiring  legacy application with nemerous external dependancies and as a part of the analysis process my team and I are performing a great deal of reverse engineering.   New applications which will be built as a result of retirement this legacy application will be merely a collection of back-end services and so I was wondering if anyone knows any tools or methodologies that are out there for this type of purpose.  I am aware of such tools as IRISE, but this one is specifically used for UI driven requirements gathering where a business user directly interacts with a system.    If anyone share similar experience as I am please let me know if you are aware of any req. gathering tools for back-end apps.   Thanks!
