Der Bazar der Anforderungen - Open Innovation in emergenten Communities
Published in Informatik-Spektrum Volume 34(2):178-191, Springer Berlin/Heidelberg, DOI 10.1007/s00287-010-0516-5
Traditional Requirements Engineering is focused on the identification, persistence, and traceability of requirements in organizational information systems. Progressing globalization and networking has spawned new forms of collaboration in information technology support. Based on two case studies we identified requirements to an adaptive form of Requirements Engineering for emergent communities. We developed an i* model for the description of mutual dependencies among communities and the information systems they use from the perspective of an adaptive RE.We support adaptive RE by a service toolkit, which can be integrated into arbitrary information systems to be developed. Thus, a bazaar of requirements emerges in the spirit of the open source movement.We have prototypically realized this process in a store for web-based widgets for the creation of personalized learning environments.
