Domain Data Analysis

Data analysis is the process of organizing, classifying, visualizing, analyzing and summarizing data to obtain useful information and therefore develop coherent conclusions. During this process, domain data are collected, classified, organized, and analyzed. The purpose is to assess previously identified problems so they can be represented quantitatively. The data analysis is typically based on an appropriate domain data model.

Karen Kemp:Tthis step would be repeated in the later phases, so I’m not sure how to or whether to write it more generically. My suggestions here are for the generic version so that this step can be iterated.
