Requirements management for the Internet of Things

With the advent of the Internet of Things, all of the technologies required to make this scenario a reality exist today. The Internet of Things is not only changing the way people are living but is also changing the way people who build such things are doing their jobs. The Internet of Things products have huge potential to make our lives better. However, developing these products can be challenging. They are complex and riddled with interdependencies that can cause costly incompatibility failures or delayed product launches.

 

So how can you effectively develop and deliver the Internet of Things products? How can you make sure that the product you’ve developed meets its original requirements? The key is to ensure that requirements drive the entire product development process. Requirements management is the answer

Agile Development – Why requirements matter

The clear benefits of agile development—better collaboration, incremental delivery, early error detection and the elimination of unnecessary work—have made it the default approach for many teams. Agile methods

are also being adopted by systems engineering teams to deliver the same benefits. Some developers have questioned whether requirements fall into the category of unnecessary work, and can be cut down or even

completely eliminated. Meanwhile, teams developing complex products, systems and regulated IT continue to have requirements-driven legacy processes.

 

So how does requirements management fit in an agile world? This paper argues that requirements management can bring significant value to agile development in regulated IT and complex product development projects, and sets out the characteristics of an effective requirements management

approach in an agile environment.
