Get the skills you need to do SAD!

In a field as exciting and dynamic as System Analysis and Design (SAD), there will always be new techniques and approaches to develop systems more effectively and efficiently. But if you want to succeed in SAD, you'll need a solid foundation of skills you can rely on--no matter what the approach or methodology.

That's why Alan Dennis and Barb Wixom's SYSTEMS ANALYSI AND DESIGN focuses on the core set of skills that all analysis must possess--from gathering rewuirements and modeling business needs to creating blueprints for how the system should be built. Now updated and revised, the new edition features reorganized chapters, new topics, and expanded detail.

FEATURES:

* Focus on doing SAD. This text encourages you to do SAD. After presenting the how and what of each major technique, the text guides you through practice problems and then invites you to use the technique in a project.

* New and expanded coverage. The Second Edition presents a new half chapter about the project selection process, as well as more detailed coverage of economic feasibility, process modeling, data modeling, and IT architecture.

* New real-life examples, cases, and skills. The book includes a running case, which serves as a template that you can apply to your own work. Chapters also include "Concepts in Action" boxes, which describe how real companies succeeded (and failed) in performing the activities in that chapter.

* Object-oriented concepts and techniques. Object-oriented concepts are included throughout the book, and a final chapter focuses on the major elements of UML.

* Project-based approach. Topics are presented in the order in which an analyst would encounter them in a typical project.

* Tips from the pros. Interviews of seven CIOs on about project selection and management are integrated throughout the book.

* Student Web Site. Includes hands-on exercises, Word and RTF templates for project deliverables, PowerPoint slides, and relevant internet links.

Synopsis:

Put SAD into action!

You can’t truly understand Systems Analysis and Design (SAD) by only reading about it; you have to doit. In Systems Analysis and Design, Third Edition,Dennis, Wixom, and Roth offer a hands-on approach to actually doing SAD. Building on their experience as professional systems analysts and award-winning teachers, these three authors capture the experience of actually developing and analyzing systems. They focus on the core set of skills that all analysts must possess––from gathering requirements and modeling business needs, to creating blueprints for how the system should be built.

Features

  • New and expanded coverage, including expanded coverage of functional and nonfunctional requirements; new event-action lists; a new extended example of process modeling and data modeling; expanded discussion of the use and interpretation of the weighted alternative matrix as well as RFPs, RFI, and RFQs; a new emphasis on the Migration Plan; and new coverage of business contingency planning during implementation.
