ABOUT THE SPEAKER

As a scrupulous and creative business analyst, I like to undertake complex tasks and efficiently solve them in an uncertain environment and limited time.
I graduated as system analyst, started career as marketing analyst and then switched to IT. Now I have over 10 years of experience as business consultant and functional analyst. I was involved in business analysis and development projects for customers in financial, distribution and medical domains.
My competencies include providing project execution at all stages: from planning and data collection to new solutions design and implementation.
I always use analytical tools that fit best to a particular project and like to share best practices. That is why I was a speaker on several analytical conferences and local meetups. Will be happy to share my practical experience and my team’s achievements with you.

Speech: Who and how use your system in reality

During the requirements analysis and software design process, a lot of time and efforts are devoted to understanding actual user needs. Expected business value becomes a driver of the system, it determines future functionality and work priorities.
The classic approach that works well before implementation. But in rush of a new project with new challenges and new user stories, we usually forget to do post-analysis of the previous project.
Do users know about the new functionality? Do they use the capabilities of the system as intended? How can we learn it? What if we have no opportunity to ask end-users?
In the presentation, we will go from the first hypothesis about the work of users to the focused data collection and analysis. Our goal is understanding the real actions and real needs of our users.
The talk will be interesting for product managers who analyze the quality of their work and for analysts, who want to improve the product.
