Competency of a business analyst plays a crucial role in requirements elicitation, particularly now when the information systems are developed to support strategic business goals. However, as yet, there has been little research into the relationship between competencies of business analysts and requirements elicitation. In this study, a scenario-based(More)
This paper presents the first steps in a research project that integrates two requirements engineering methodologies, B-SCP and MAP, in order to manage the evolution of strategic IT. Our integration approach presents a mechanism to validate and verify MAP requirements against B-SCP requirements and vice versa. MAP has an inbuilt Gap Analysis process which(More)
The scope of requirements engineering must include high-level business objectives and strategies to achieve traceability between IT and business needs in order to ensure alignment. However, we must also deal with the evolution of business strategy. Enterprise IT evolution is a complex task. This paper presents the first steps in a research project that(More)
Integration of requirements engineering techniques has been common and proven beneficial. Map is a strategy-driven modelling technique that elicits requirements in terms of intentions and strategies. B-SCP is an approach to address alignment between requirements and business strategy. To address the problem of strategic requirements evolution in B-SCP, we(More)
Context identification is an important feature of goal modelling techniques. It helps to understand wider organisational systems during requirements engineering. The goal of this paper is to identify domain context for the process driven requirements modelling technique MAP. We present our preliminary research on adding domain context to MAP by using(More)
Several frameworks have been proposed in Requirements Engineering (RE) discipline that use goal-oriented approach to model the concept of strategic alignment. Understanding the concept of strategic alignment from the perspective of Management Information Systems (MIS) discipline and evaluating goal-oriented approaches in the context of strategic alignment(More)
Social media sites are playing a significant role in rapid propagation of information when disasters occur. This effective communication platform is a great useful tool for emergency (disaster) management agencies during all phases of disaster management life cycle: prevention (mitigation), preparedness, response, and recovery. This study has conducted a(More)
Requirements engineering describes how an IT implementation will support business functions. Most IT systems are operational in nature and typical requirements engineering techniques and methods are usually adequate in capturing and documenting the requirements for such systems. Jackson's problem frames is a technique that is suitable for straightforward IT(More)
We present a software development approach that aligns a requirements elicitation technique with a formal method of software specification abstraction. The goal/strategy modeling technique Map augmented with Jackson's context diagrams (representing environment) is used to elicit requirements and the B-method is used to translate Map requirements into formal(More)
