A Requirement Elicitation Process for BI Projects

Danielle A. Menéndez and Paulo Caetano da Silva
Abstract—To elicit requirements is one of the most important activities in the Software Engineering process. To understand and correctly specify what the user wants is an indispensable condition to ensure that the software meets its intended purpose. For BI projects, the elicitation of requirements is a task of great importance, since BI projects are based on service-oriented systems for the strategic areas of organizations, and so errors and flaws can produce serious consequences. Thus, this paper aims to discuss methods and techniques developed for the requirements elicitation activity. Therefore, a process of requirements elicitation focused on BI projects is presented. The proposed process defines stages and activities, the interactions between them, a set of input and output documents, as well as the most appropriate elicitation techniques for BI projects. In addition, a case study is presented. It was performed to validate the stages and activities of REP-BIP and to verify if the artifacts produced are consistent with the expectations for requirements elicitation for BI projects.

Index Terms—Software engineering, requirements elicitation, business intelligence, software process.
