    • Hi Hari,

      George is correct, this would be more appropriate to be posted in the Webi forum, as pointed, please use the link.

      I have very little experience with requirements gathering itself and normally the process is the other way around ... the customer gives the requirements and a suitable product is found.

      As a start - not a definitive list, I would suggest:
      What sort of data visualizations (charts, maps, ) are required?
      What type of documents are required? Just billing, deeper data analysis, on the fly analysis? Large data volumes?
      Does it need to be updated every day? Frequency of updates
      How are documents shared? e-mail, bi platform/web, ftp, ...
      What is the level of change management that is required? Can all users create documents? (Life Cycle Management)

      Additinal Forms of Authentication required? WinAD?

      Does it need to be running on a certain OS?

      Datasource related
      Where does the data come from, multiple sources? Does it need to be cleaned? Does data need to be merged - ETL? How fast is the end-user expecting a response from the tool (can the database deliver?)?

      Is single signon to the database required?

      What devices need to be supported? Just browser or also iPad, Blackberry etc

      You can extending this list with hundreds of questions, but I can't really go to that far.

      Kind Regards,
