The concept of this project was chosen because I felt there was a real life business need for this type of application. I had noticed a gap in the market for students where they could maximise the use out of being an actual student and the benefits they could be availing of through their student cards. I had been thinking of this type of discount saving app for students for a couple of months and then as part of our final year project in college we were tasked with coming up with an app idea that used technology. So the idea met the criteria for me to create a business analysis type project.

During this project there were a number of various elicitation and analysis techniques that were involved from the business analysis body of knowledge that helped to formulate a highly detailed requirements specification document for the StudentLife application. These included techniques such as a brainstorming session, survey, three interviews, a prototype, requirements workshop and an interface analysis. A list of all the stakeholders that would be involved in the project was also comprised at the start of the project. The next step after creating the stakeholder list was to create power/ influence matrix to define each stakeholder’s importance based on their influence on the project. Once the main project stakeholders had been identified, the next phase of how the requirements were going to be gathered and analysed commenced.

After the planning phase was completed, relevant stakeholders had to be contacted and times arranged for the various elicitation meetings to take place, each of the techniques were implemented with different stakeholders. Each of the stakeholders have an association with the app and any relevant requirements that were elicited as a result of the elicitation sessions were documented and analysed for future reference using various analysis tools. A detailed IEEE Requirements Specification Document was created as a result of the requirements elicitation meetings for the StudentLife app. The IEEE Requirements Specification Document discusses the main functional and non-functional requirements of the StudentLife app in detail and is used by the development team along with other requirements that have been gathered to formulate the StudentLife app.
