Direct Capture of Objectives

Direct Capture of Objectives (DCO) is the process of defining and managing business objectives in your application. By storing your functional requirements directly in your application instead of using an external tool, you can quickly generate application documents, speed up development, and improve the traceability and maintainability of your application.

You can repeat the DCO process in whole or part during any phase of application development. Ensure that you consult the relevant stakeholders in your organization, such as business architects or system architects, when you update or create a business objective, so that you promote collaboration and cross-functional feedback in your application.

You can use the following tools and capabilities to support DCO in your application:

  • The New Application wizard

  • Features

  • Specifications

  • Requirements

  • The Sizing wizard

  • The Agile Workbench tool

  • The Document Application tool
