Today, information-technology business analysts are often working on object-oriented
(OO), Unified Modeling Language (UML) projects, yet they have a long way to go to
exploit the technology beyond the adoption of use cases (just one part of the UML). This
book explains how, as an IT business analyst, you can pull together all of the UML tools and
fully utilize them during your IT project. Rather than approaching this topic theoretically,
you will actually learn by doing: A case study takes you through the entire book, helping
you to develop and validate the requirements for an IT system step by step.
Whether you are a new IT business analyst; an experienced analyst, but new to the UML;
a developer who is interested in expanding your role to encompass IT business-analysis
activities; or any other professional tasked with requirements gathering or the modeling of
the business domain on a project, you’ll be trained and mentored to work efficiently on UML
projects in an easy-to-understand and visual manner. This new edition has been completely
updated for UML 2.2, and includes coverage of all the relevant new BABOK 2 knowledge
areas. The new edition also covers various lifecycle approaches (non-empirical, empirical,
waterfall, iterative, and agile) and their impact on the way project steps are carried out.
