In the last chapter, we discussed an integrative approach to developing requirements for information systems, applying Sommerville’s framework of user and systems requirements documentation. We now extend that discussion to consider an approach that might be useful when planning activities for analyzing user requirements for an IDCM endeavor. The information derived from the analysis of user requirements will be a key component of the requirements specification. Our objectives are as follows: • Discuss the role of the user requirements analysis in the context of IDCM; • Discuss the analysis and definition of strategic requirements for IDCM systems within the context of enterprise business planning; • Discuss the specification of tactical requirements for an IDCM solution at the site, workgroup, or business process level of an enterprise; • Consider the requirements for specifying interfaces to business systems; • Discuss the documentation of operational requirements with some specific reference to archiving and preservation concerns; and • Discuss extended requirements for IDCM solutions.
