A technology-related condition or event that prevents the project from fully delivering the ideal solution to customers and end-users.
The business analyst must ensure that they are on the lookout for technology-related constraints that will prevent the project team from delivering the ideal solution.
These constraints result from the organization’s limited abilities to make changes to their existing technology environments. Common technical constraints include:
- • Data security practices and protocols that can prevent authentication and data transfer between systems.
- • Application infrastructure limitations that can prevent real-time data exchange between systems.
As a business analyst, you may be expected to identify these technical constraints and document them as part of your scope and requirements.
