• A more rigorous and thorough treatment of Requirements Determination and Use Case Analysis.
• A new continuing example integrated in chapters 4, 5, and 6 introduces how to read use cases, process models, and data models in a simple, focused way.
• New Spotlight on Ethics features provide timely and real ethical dilemmas that confront systems analysts.
• Many new Concepts in Action boxes provide updated, real-world illustrations of the textbook content.
• Project-based approach: Topics are presented in the order in which an analyst would encounter them in a typical project.
• Real-world focus with many examples, several running cases which serve as templates that students can apply to their own work, and Concepts in Action examples that describe how real companies succeeded (and failed) in performing SAD activities.
• Provides a structured approach to SAD while also integrating object-oriented techniques as appropriate, for example, the development of use cases is presented as the first step in process modeling. In addition, a final chapter on the major elements of UML 2.0 can be used as an introduction to OO SAD.
