Poorly documented Software Requirements are a major source of inefficiencies and sub-optimal outcomes. 

 

Strategic challenges limiting market performance

  • Ambiguous Requirements

    Textual representations of software requirements can have inherent ambiguity built into them, which slows down development


  • Unnecessary Re-work

    Poorly documented requirements often lead to re-work from the developers.


  • Too much back and forth

    Because of unclear requirements, you can end up with too much “back and forth” between the business and engineering teams, wasting time and increasing cycle times.


  • Too many defects

    Because of poor requirements, you can end up with too many avoidable defects which slows down velocity.

Capturing accurate business requirements for your Enterprise Software Applications is one of the hardest things about software development. It is critical to achieving the maximum business value from your IT investments. Poorly documented business requirements can lead to delays, wasted time, poor quality and ultimately, unhappy customers.

 

 

 

Read our blog to learn more about the challenges resulting from poorly documented requirements.

An unstructured approach (using Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Visio) for documenting the Business Requirements and Design, is a key root cause of the problem…

 

 

 

Challenges in using unstructured requirements

  • Unclear Requirements

    Text based requirements are inherently unclear and ambiguous leading to re-work.


  • Out of Sync Documents

    Data elements across documents easily get “out of sync”. Lack of “source of truth” for requirements and design.


  • Inefficient Documentation

    Manually writing text based documents is inherently time consuming.


  • Inconsistent Requirements

    Lack of structure and free-form text editing leads to inconsistency that creeps in.

  • Poor Visibility

    Difficulty in locating documents (e.g. SharePoint) hampers visibility.


  • Limited Text Search

    Cannot search for text search terms easily because data is unstructured.


  • Limited Collaboration

    Multiple users cannot edit and collaborate on the same documents at the same time.


  • Limited View of the “Big Picture”

    Difficulty in piecing together the overall perspective because of the need to look at a lot of documents to connect the dots.
