As per Execution-MiH, this is most challenging and critical phase, as unlike a transactional systems, the requirements tend to be loose and changing as the information needs for business are fairly dynamic. Therefore one has to look under the business needs defined by business and go for the models which can handle the possible changes in these requirements.
