Introduction to Requirements
When tasked to design a database system, you have to be mindful that users often aren’t technologists. Sometimes, you may even have to understand that people with organizational power or check signing rights may not have the proper amount of intelligence doled out to them. So when you start to gather requirements, relying on the client’s management professionals to know what they want and how to implement it is almost always complete insanity. On the flip side, keep in mind that you’re building a system to solve a business problem first for the users, then for the people who sign the checks, and not for yourself. What the users (and check writers) want is the most important, so you must consider that first and foremost.
