1 Assuming the Role of Systems Analyst & Analysis Alternatives

2 Nature of Analysis Systems analysis and design is a systematic approach to identifying problems, opportunities, and objectives; analyzing the information flows in organizations; and designing systems to solve a problem Kendall & Kendall 1-2

3 Systems Analyst Systems analysts act as Outside consultants to businesses Supporting experts within a business As change agents Analysts are problem solvers, and require communication skills Analysts must be ethical with users and customers Kendall & Kendall 1-3

4 Systems Development Life Cycle The systems development life cycle is a systematic approach to solving business problems It is divided into seven phases Each phase has unique activities Kendall & Kendall 1-4

5 The Seven Phases of the Systems Development Life Cycle (Figure 1.3) 1-5

6 Identifying Problems, Opportunities, and Objectives Activity: Interviewing user management Summarizing the knowledge obtained Estimating the scope of the project Documenting the results Output: Feasibility report containing problem definition and objective summaries from which management can make a decision on whether to proceed with the proposed project 1-6

7 Determining Human Information Requirements Activity: Interviewing Sampling and investing hard data Questionnaires Observe the decision maker s behavior and environment. Prototyping Learn the who, what, where, when, how, and why of the current system. Output: The analyst understands how users accomplish their work when interacting with a computer; and begin to know how to make the new system more useful and usable. The analyst should also know the business functions and have complete information on the people, goals, data, and procedure involved. 1-7

8 Analyzing System Needs Activity: Create data flow, activity, or sequence diagrams. Complete the data dictionary. Analyze the structured decisions made. Prepare and present the system proposal. Output: Recommendation on what, if anything, should be done 1-8

9 Designing the Recommended System Activity: Design procedures for data entry. Design the human-computer interface. Design system controls. Design database and/or files. Design backup procedures. Output Model of the actual system 1-9

10 Developing and Documenting Software Activity: System analyst works with programmers to develop any original software. Works with users to develop effective documentation. Programmers design, code, and remove syntactical errors from computer programs. Document software with help files, procedure manuals, and Web sites with Frequently Asked Questions. Output: Computer programs System documentation 1-10

11 Testing and Maintaining the System Activity: Test the information system. System maintenance. Maintenance documentation. Output: Problems, if any Updated programs Documentation 1-11

12 Implementing and Evaluating the System Activity: Train users. Analyst plans smooth conversion from old system to new system. Review and evaluate system. Output: Trained personnel Installed system 1-12

13 Some Researchers Estimate that the Amount of Time Spent on Systems Maintenance May Be as Much as 60 Percent of the Total Time Spent on Systems Projects (Figure 1.4) Kendall & Kendall Copyright 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall 1-13

14 The Impact of Maintenance Maintenance is performed for two reasons: Removing software errors Enhancing existing software Over time the cost of continued maintenance will be greater than that of creating an entirely new system. At that point it becomes more feasible to perform a new systems study. Kendall & Kendall Copyright 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall 1-14

15 Resource Consumption over the System Life (Figure 1.5) Kendall & Kendall Copyright 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall 1-15

16 Approaches to Structured Analysis and Design and to the Systems Development Life Cycle Traditional systems development life cycle CASE systems development life cycle Object-oriented systems analysis and design Kendall & Kendall Copyright 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall 1-16

17 Case Tools CASE tools are productivity tools for systems analysts that have been created explicitly to improve their routine work through the use of automated support. Reasons for using CASE tools Increasing analyst productivity Improving analyst-user communication Integrating life cycle activities Kendall & Kendall Copyright 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall 1-17

18 Case Tool Classifications Upper CASE tools perform analysis and design. Lower CASE tools generate programs from CASE design. Kendall & Kendall Copyright 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall 1-18

19 Upper CASE Tools Create and modify the system design. Help in modeling organizational requirements and defining system boundaries. Kendall & Kendall Copyright 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall 1-19

20 Lower CASE Tools Lower CASE tools generate computer source code from the CASE design. Source code is usually generated in several languages. Decreases maintenance time Generates error-free code Kendall & Kendall Copyright 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall 1-20

21 The Agile Approach Based on: Values Principles Core practices Kendall & Kendall Copyright 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall 1-21

22 Agile Values Communication Simplicity Feedback Courage Kendall & Kendall Copyright 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall 1-22

23 Four Agile Resources Resources are adjusted to ensure successful project completion. Time Cost Quality Scope Kendall & Kendall Copyright 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall 1-23

24 Five Stages of Agile Development Exploration Planning Iterations to the first release Productionizing Maintenance Kendall & Kendall Copyright 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall 1-24

25 Agile Project Development Process (Figure 1.7) Kendall & Kendall Copyright 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall 1-25

26 Object-Oriented (O-O) Systems Analysis and Design Alternate approach to the structured approach of the SDLC that is intended to facilitate the development of systems that change rapidly in response to dynamic business environments Analysis is performed on a small part of the system followed by design and implementation. The cycle repeats with analysis, design, and implementation of the next part and this repeats until the project is complete. Examines the objects of a system 1-26

27 Unified Modeling Language (UML) Phases Define the use case model: Use case diagram Use case scenarios Create UML diagrams. Develop class diagrams. Draw statechart diagrams. Modify the UML diagrams. Kendall & Kendall Develop Copyright and document the system Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall 1-27

28 Choosing a Method Choose either: SDLC Agile Object-oriented methodologies Kendall & Kendall Copyright 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall 1-28

29 When to Use SDLC Systems have been developed and documented using SLDC. It is important to document each step. Upper level management feels more comfortable or safe using SDLC. There are adequate resources and time to complete the full SDLC. Communication of how new systems work is important. Kendall & Kendall Copyright 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall 1-29

30 When to Use Agile There is a project champion of agile methods in the organization. Applications need to be developed quickly in response to a dynamic environment. A rescue takes place (the system failed and there is no time to figure out what went wrong). The customer is satisfied with incremental improvements. Executives and analysts agree with the principles of agile methodologies. Kendall & Kendall Copyright 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall 1-30

31 Reverse Engineering Reverse engineering is generating the CASE design from computer program code Source code is examined, analyzed, and converted into repository entities Kendall & Kendall 1-31

32 Reverse Engineering Produces Reverse engineering produces (depending on the tool set used) Data structures and elements, describing the files, records, and field Screen designs, if the program is online Report layouts for batch programs A structure chart showing the hierarchy of the modules in the program Database design and relationships Kendall & Kendall 1-32

33 Advantages of Reverse Engineering It has the following advantages: Reduced system maintenance time Program documentation is produced for loosely documented programs Structured programs may be generated from unstructured, older programs Future system maintenance is easier to implement Unused portions of programs may be eliminated Kendall & Kendall 1-33
