This subject introduces information system concepts and describes how these concepts can be used to model business requirements. It outlines how the ability to capture information about the system in ways understood by its eventual users improves the final quality of the system. An overview of agile and non-agile software engineering principles, methods, tools and techniques is presented and practised in small teams. The subject introduces various analysis approaches found in contemporary system development including object-oriented methods, agile methods, business process modelling and entity-relationship modelling. It explores the relationships between these techniques and their application, and how they are used to capture and model the business requirements. Students apply various requirements elicitation, analysis, modelling and specification techniques to case studies in small teams.
