BlogForever D4.1: User Requirements and Platform Specifications


This report specifies requirements for the BlogForever archive and preservation system. Therefore, requirements descriptions are assembled from several sources like the description of work and former deliverables. Additionally, 26 semi-structured interviews were conducted to identify additional requirements as well as to validate the already described requirements. The report illustrates the method of interview conduction and qualitative analysis. It includes a description of relevant stakeholders and requirement categories.

The identified requirements are specified in a standardised template and modelled with the unified modelling language (UML). Thus, they can be easily explored and utilised by developers. Additional views provide further support for navigation. Overall, the requirements are the foundation for the design phase because they represent the perspective of demand.
