Business Analysis & Requirements gathering


Every new activity, product or project requires technologically-backed research. The quality of business analysis that is completed at an early phase, is the yardstick for a competitive strategy.

A focused and detailed business analysis aids in the process of discovering, analyzing, defining, and documenting the requirements that are related to a specific business objective. It also allows clients to clearly and precisely define the scope of the project, so that they can assess the timescales and resources needed to complete it.

At In4Group, we believe that investing in the best practice business modelling and requirements gathering approach at the start of your project will not only help you to build a better business but will also identify vulnerable areas at a point where it is most cost effective to address them.

In4Group offers business analysis and requirements gathering service, both as part of an overall SDLC or as a standalone consulting assignment. Our delivery teams, equipped with certified consultants, have over 20 years of Business Analysis experience and have spearheaded several strategic projects. Our services are aligned to adhere to BABOK® 2.0 Standards.

System Analysis & Design


In4Group provides complete Systems Analysis and Design (SyAD) service to help your company develop the right solution for your information system needs. We provide the capability to drive strategic and tactical analysis from a single, integrated view of your business, which enables reduced development time, added investment protection, increased flexibility and quicker adaptability.

Our SyAD approach uses a combination of three techniques based on organisational challenges and business goals:

Logical Data Modelling

The process of identifying, modelling and documenting the data requirements of the system being designed. The data is separated into entities (the various types of information a company has to record) and relationships (the associations between the entities).

Data Flow Modelling

The process of identifying, modelling and documenting how data moves around an information system. Data Flow Modelling examines processes (activities that transform data from one form to another), data stores (the holding areas for data), external entities (what sends data into a system or receives data from a system) and data flows (routes by which the data can flow).

Entity BehaviourModelling

The process of identifying, modelling and documenting the events that affect each entity and the sequence in which these events occur.

Each of these three system models provides a different viewpoint of the same system, and each viewpoint is required to form a complete model of the system being designed. The three techniques are cross-referenced against each other to ensure the completeness and accuracy of the whole application.

SyAD Model application development projects are divided into five modules that are further categorized into a hierarchy of stages, steps and tasks:

Feasibility Study

The business area is analysed to determine whether a system can cost effectively support the business requirements.

Requirements Analysis

The requirements of the system to be developed are identified and the current business environment is modelled in terms of the processes carried out and the data structures involved.

Requirements Specification

Detailed functional and non-functional requirements are identified and new techniques are introduced to define the required processing and data structures.

Logical System Specification

Technical systems options are produced and the logical design of update and enquiry processing and system dialogues.

Physical Design

A physical database design and a set of program specifications are created using the logical system specification and technical system specification.
