Providing a solution to a business' needs requires a thorough understanding of the business field in question. Generally speaking, the field experts are the ones that can best define these needs.
In order to implement these needs, it is often better if they are understood and reinterpreted by a technical team that is unfamiliar with the field.
The intervention of an intermediary team often delays the bringing to market of the business solution and increases the risk of genuine needs being poorly understood.
The best solution for capturing needs at source consists in allowing business departments themselves to describe their needs, visually and using the specific vocabulary of their field.
This is possible with a business modeling tool, customized for the concerned field.
The specifications, which can still be understood by the business experts, are not simple drawings (entered in tools such as Powerpoint or Visio) but models containing data. They can thus be validated automatically and used to produce structured documentation.
Above all, to speed up the time-to-market of your products, this model can also be used to automatically configure an application or solve formulas.
