Four-day Business Information Analysis 

Description

The emphasis of this four-day workshop is on the gathering and specifying of the Business Information. As data is typically global (i.e. shared by many within the organisation), information analysis is a critical task for any organisation.

The inability to specify an organisation-wide set of data and their relationships can lead to mass redundancy of data and unsynchronized information as well as dead data (gathered, updated and never used). This is regardless of any latest database implementation or stringent manual procedures.

Four-Day Computer Systems Design

Course Description

This workshop offers ways to drastically reduce development and maintenance time of all automated systems, whether mainframe, client-server, or the Internet. It advocates building a design blueprint before developing the computer systems itself. This blueprint is a model of the system solution. The major model (a hierarchy diagram) is a development, implementation and testing model and forms a major part of the final system maintenance documentation. Commonly known as a Technical or Functional Specification

Internationally proven methods and models are used for creating a maintainable reliable system design from a well-defined requirements specification. Computer Systems Design picks up after the analysis workshop (Business Process & Information Modelling) and addresses the invention portion of a system development effort.

We are starting to see major bugs introduced into important business systems because the old systems are not built with good ENGINEERING practices. Most bugs and difficult modifications are not caused by business or technological changes, but rather by our old methods of Computer Systems Design (or lack thereof)

Audience 
Systems Analysts, Designers, programmers, developers. Any person that’s about to, or is responsible for developing functional / technical specifications.
