The Confusion of Business Rules and Requirements 

Hello, 

I have a simple question. 

Business Rules are Functional Requirements, well accepted. But please see both examples below and can you confirm that a Business Rule is not always a Functional Requirement?

The system has to retain data for 6 years( Non Functional Requirement), however, this is due to a business rule that relates to financial regulations. 

Another Example:

The system will send an email once the password expires after 60 days.. This is a Functional Requirement due to a Business Rule!!

I am just confused about the Science, it does not seem to me there is any standard to follow.

It may sound routine, but the importance of operational decisions cannot be underestimated. After all, not a day goes by without even the smallest business making dozens, if not hundreds of operational decisions that may affect the bottom line. Elevate these to large scale companies and we are talking thousands, if not millions of actions that impa...
