"Information Resource Management is the lens through which IT sees the business. So both sides don’t lose focus on the relationship between the business, the technology, and the customer."
Mark Ouska


Transforming business process requirements into robust, high-level system designs involves three distinct design activities:

  • Designing Conceptual Business Solutions - determining how major business and technology components will deliver on the project’s intentions.
  • Designing Business Use Cases – identifying the business transactions required to deliver the specified, to-be functionality.
  • Designing Technical Use Cases – transforming the business use cases into high-quality system transaction specifications.

This course emphasizes the third step in this process, designing the technical use cases. It examines what’s needed to accept and interpret a set of business use cases and apply appropriate technology to create a specification of the to-be system that:
  • Delivers the required business functionality.
  • Is rigorous, unambiguous, and workable by the developers.
  • Provides for flexible solutions with re-useable potential.
  • Includes a complete set of transactions for development.

Course Outcomes:
Students of this course will return to work:

  1. Articulating the value of formal, robust system design to the success of the organization.
  2. Understanding the differences between business use cases and technical use cases.
  3. With a framework for transforming business use cases into technical use cases and completing the design.
