Use Case/User Story

For MPH’s work to be successful, it is critical to understand how the data at issue can be leveraged to inform an issue. The vast amount of data managed by the State of Indiana holds immense value for a diverse variety of users. In order to effectively identify and deliver data for meaningful use, use cases must be developed to clearly capture the end users’ needs and intended applications. Matching the data need of an individual end user to the most appropriate corresponding data requires three essential components:

User Story. The user story is a specific application of the data unique to a single end user. The intended applications of the data by each individual end user is captured in a user story.

Use Case. The use case is a general topic area that reflects a common data need by any number of end users. Under a single use case, multiple end users may apply the same data differently.

Dataset. The dataset is a collection of fields that meet the common need of the use case. Data required to meet the needs of a use case, therefore, is not limited to a single user or user story.
