Delivering Value on COTS Projects: Key Business Analysis Techniques

It's increasingly common for organizations to deploy commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) or software-as-a-service (SaaS) products as part of implementing new capabilities and business change. Business analysts who have historically focused on functional and software requirements might feel their careers are threatened on these types of projects.
 
The reality is that business analysis is incredibly valuable, and necessary, to ensure these projects deliver their anticipated return on investment. Without solid business analysis, your organization risks solving the wrong problem, or creating bigger problems that need to be fixed later. Learn how to apply business process analysis to understand the current and future state workflows, apply functional requirements techniques to clarify configuration and customization options, and apply data modeling techniques to ensure a smooth transition to the new system. In this presentation, you'll learn critical business analysis techniques for COTS and SaaS projects, and how to customize your approach to be not only relevant, but essential, to the project's success.

About the speakerLaura Brandenburg, CBAP, is an internationally-recognized leader known for helping mid-career professionals start business analysis careers.

Laura brings more than a decade of experience in the business analysis profession, filling such diverse roles as a full-time business analyst, consultant, and director of a team of business analysts, project managers, and quality assurance professionals which she built from the ground up. She brings together all of these perspectives to help you create a more successful and effective business analyst practice.
