Implementing Novel IT Products in Small Size Organizations - Technology-driven Requirements Engineering

Jolita Ralyté, Laurent Biggel

Abstract

The growing popularity of new mobile information technology products influences enterprises to buy them without an appropriate evaluation of their usability. This situation is relatively new and conventional usage-driven requirements engineering approaches are not well suitable. The objective of our work is to propose a technology-driven requirements engineering approach where requirements are discovered not only from business needs but also from product features and properties. In particular we take into consideration small size organizations with a small number of business roles and activities.
