Nicht wenige Software-Projekte erreichen ihre gesteckten Ziele nicht, da bereits in ihrer Anfangsphase Anforderungen an die Software nicht gründlich genug analysiert und dokumentiert wurden. Oft wird auch vernachlässigt, dass Softwareentwicklung genauso viel mit Kommunikation, wie mit eigentlicher Entwicklungsarbeit zu tun hat. An diesem Punkt setzt dieser Klassiker der Softwareentwicklungsliteratur an, in dem überzeugend präsentiert wird, warum die Erhebung, Zusammenstellung und das Managen von Software Requirements essentiell für erfolgreiche Projekte ist und mit welchen erprobten Mitteln diese Aufgaben am besten zu meistern sind. Karl Wiegers zeigt damit, wie Requirements-Analysten, Projektleiter, aber auch alle Programmierer und Designer, die Anforderungen der Kunden umsetzen müssen, Produktivität, Termintreue, Kundenzufriedenheit und Wartungs- und Supportkosten mit dem im Buch beschriebenen Praktiken drastisch verbessern können. - Realistische Erwartungen für Funktionalität und Qualität setzen - Geschäftsregeln in die Anwendungsentwicklung integrieren - Anwendungsfälle zur Definition von Benutzeranforderungen verwenden - Unausgesprochene und wechselnde Requirements identifizieren und managen - Revisionen einschränken und damit Kosten sparen - Besser Software produzieren

It is not uncommon to meet professionals in financial services who have only a vague idea of what their colleagues actually do. The root cause is specialization and the subsequent development of jargon that makes communication between common specialists faster and more precise but is virtually impenetrable to everybody else. The Bank Analyst’s Handbook provides a modern introduction to financial markets and intermediation. Individual subject areas are covered in a thorough but clear and succinct manner. The breadth of the author’s experience as a sell-side bank analyst is exploited to good effect to pull together these threads and create a coherent framework for the analysis of financial markets, whether these are in advanced economies or developing markets. The Handbook is well-written and highly accessible. It builds on orthodox financial theory (with all of its flaws and controversies) but also highlights many of the real problems involved with translating such theory into practice. It can be appreciated at many different levels and this explains its wide target readership. The Bank Analyst’s Handbook: Bridges the gap between the more superficial introductory books and specialist works Covers all the important functions and subjects related to the financial services industry Provides a comprehensive overview for financial services professionals, business school students, consultants, accountants, auditors and legal practitioners, analysts and fund-managers and corporate managers. "An excellent guide for any professionals who are coming into the banking industry. Extremely well-written, covering clearly and lucidly a range of topics which many bankers themselves don't understand. I will make this book mandatory reading - no, make that studying - for anybody I hire to work as a financial sector consultant." —Chris Matten, Executive Director, PricewaterhouseCoopers "A great insight into the often murky and impenetrable world of banking... compulsory reading for analysts and investors alike." —Hugh Young, Managing Director, Aberdeen Asset Management Asia Ltd

Alistair Cockburn beschreibt ausführlich, was Uses Cases sind, welche Bestandteile hineingehören und wie man sie strukturieren sollte. Besonders nützlich sind seine Erörterungen, wie man mit großen Mengen von Use Cases umgeht. Im zweiten Teil seines Buchs geht Cockburn auf verschiedene praktische Probleme ein. Es geht um Fragen wie "Woran erkennen wir, dass wir fertig sind?" oder "Wie fügen sich Use Cases in den Gesamtprozess ein?". Im dritten Teil werden die wichtigsten Themen noch einmal als knappe Referenz zusammengefasst.

Information systems have become a critical part of the infrastructure of most, if not all, businesses, government organizations, and even individual households. To be useful, an information system must integrate and align with the way the business conducts its operations. By necessity this means that information systems construction requires an understanding of the organization's procedures, operations, and processes. Articulating, modeling, and managing business processes and workflows are pre-conditions to successful automation. Business processes are part of the fabric of the business and represent a strategic and critical intellectual asset that needs to be understood and proactively managed. Processes are often cross-functional and involve multiple systems, software applications, and human assets - including employees, customers, partners, and vendors. Processes must be formally defined and documented so that they can be practiced uniformly and consistently across the organization. Explicit articulation of processes is essential so that the processes truly become intellectual property of the organization rather than being tied to a specific individual. Business process modeling (or BPM for short) is the activity of eliciting, documenting, modeling, and analyzing work procedures within an organization. To be successful, the business analyst must possess the necessary modeling skills and business knowledge to carry out these responsibilities. The first step in business process management is capturing and articulating the processes. This is done through process modeling. Once processes have been documented, then the organization can think about optimizing and eventually automating the processes. Optimization is done through a combination of manual analysis as well as automated simulation. This book describes the PROMAP methodology for articulating and modeling business processes. PROMAP is practical and based on over 20 years of experience in modeling.

After years of mostly theoretical research, Semantic Web Technologies are now reaching out into application areas like bioinformatics, eCommerce, eGovernment, or Social Webs. Applications like genomic ontologies, semantic web services, automated catalogue alignment, ontology matching, or blogs and social networks are constantly increasing, often driven or at least backed up by companies like Google, Amazon, YouTube, Facebook, LinkedIn and others. The need to leverage the potential of combining information in a meaningful way in order to be able to benefit from the Web will create further demand for and interest in Semantic Web research. This movement, based on the growing maturity of related research results, necessitates a reliable reference source from which beginners to the field can draw a first basic knowledge of the main underlying technologies as well as state-of-the-art application areas. This handbook, put together by three leading authorities in the field, and supported by an advisory board of highly reputed researchers, fulfils exactly this need. It is the first dedicated reference work in this field, collecting contributions about both the technical foundations of the Semantic Web as well as their main usage in other scientific fields like life sciences, engineering, business, or education.
