I'm sure that will be a sobering diagnostic of some of our limitations in terms of docs, project presentation, website, etc.

For the draft, I performed a document analysis to help write the draft, pulling written sections that existed on other documents.  Please review the draft, and provide feedback by Thurs (8/14).  I welcome it, and any other corrections and clarifications that can be provided.

There are more sections left to write: http://nbviewer.ipython.org/github/ofcloudpeople/Business-Analysis/blob/IPythonProject/IPython-BusinessNeed.ipynb .  Note also: I had to close the gap between the time the project started in 2001 to the present.  I believe I was able to close it as written.  If yes , then any writing in the next sections can focus on present goals and objectives, requirements, etc.
