What You Will Learn

This course is designed to provide an overview of gathering requirements using the Oracle Unified Method. This course will demonstrate how business process models and use cases can make effective tools for the Business Analyst while gathering and defining requirements from the user perspective. This course will teach you how to employ business process models and use cases to elicit requirements, at the business and system level.

This course employs an interactive case study. The case study provide students with the opportunity to obtain hands-on experience with developing various models and artifacts related to the techniques that OUM employs for gathering business and system requirements.


Course Highlights

  • Provide an overview of gathering requirements using the Oracle Unified Method (OUM).

  • Demonstrate how uses cases and business process models are used to gather and define requirements.

  • Show how to employ use cases and business process models to elicit requirements.

  • Identify the key steps and work products associated with the OUM approach.
