CDP undertake a great deal of business intelligence business analysis. It’s like normal BA, but it is informed by our deep understanding of what makes for successful business intelligence projects. All projects benefit from good business analysis and business intelligence project are no exception. But business intelligence projects have some unique features that make the business analysis process distinctive. In particular, their iterative nature means that requirements gathering, analysis and architectural design are consequentially distinctive.
CDP provide business analysis services within the context of the IBM Solutions Implementation Methodology (SIM). It is a step-by-step guide to conducting a complete development lifecycle (analyse, design, build, deploy, operate). It describes activities, deliverables, roles and responsibilities, inputs, tools, tips and proven practices. The Methodology toolkit consists of multiple Roadmaps. Each Roadmap has a hierarchy of diagrams with Process Steps. Attached to these Process Steps are links to related documents (samples, templates, considerations, tips and proven practices).
