What are Business Requirements
Business requirements are the requirements or needs of an organization or a customer to the product, service or system.

Business Requirements are requirements of an organization or customer for a product, service, or system. They express what is required thus they achieving a specific objective. They don’t say how to do it, how to achieve it.

How do business requirements look like in practice?

It is usually a set of needs that initiate a new product, process or somehow change it. They usually take the form of a very brief document or even a few brief points. The document is sometimes referred to as BRD (Business Requirements Document) or is being elaborated into Business Case. Business requirements usually arise from strategic decisions, market demands, customers or as a feedback form operations. Business requirements can arose from any stakeholder. They always relate to the company’s vision and corporate goals - it must therefore contain a specific need that is based on the company’s goals.

This implies that business requirements are formulated at a very high level of the organization and therefore need to be further broken down, typically by Functional Requirements or by using the task decomposition.

Business requirements assess the impacts and financial demands. Approved business requirements are then further elaborated on functional, product or user requirements. These are implemented afterwards most often in the form of projects.

The business needs to describe the needs of the visual level, mainly describing the macroscopic products that solve the pain points and needs of the people in the market. Here, the description of the product story is completed by describing the user portrait, for example, to do a sharing for young white-collar workers. A photo social app for trendy clothing. At this level, large product architecture diagrams and concept diagrams will be sorted out. Some companies will respond to MRD user-level requirements, which is a business-level vision. What are the needs of users in various scenarios? For example, users will have the need to share their own pictures, there will be a demand for pictures according to the brand like Deals & Promo Codes, etc. This level of demand focuses on the scene. This level can be combed by user use cases, etc., and will gradually complete the functional level requirements of the interaction design. It is further split based on user-level requirements, and the output of the function list is completed, that is, this level of requirements can be imported into R&D.
