Often, requirements elicited from stakeholders describe a system’s functionality but fail to address qualities such as performance, reliability, & availability. Documenting these requirements is often overlooked because there are implicit assumptions that the system will perform to expected levels. This article describes a process developed on the idea of persona sketches to address this problem.
In this article, author talks about the need for a change in the predictive modeling community’s focus and compares the four types of data mining: algorithm mining, landscape mining, decision mining, and discussion mining.
