Abstract

The mantra of informatics is “getting the right information to the right people at the right time.” The requirements definition phase is determining (and making sure everyone agrees with) what is the right information, who are the right people, and when is the right time. The most important decisions require that everyone involved agree on the anticipated benefits and the expected scope of information system use.
