Object-oriented systems analysis and design is gaining in popularity. As emphasis on the Internet continues to expand in the business world, an increasing amount of software is designed to operate in this environment—almost entirely using object-oriented tools and techniques. Although OOSAD is based on object-oriented concepts and is different from the still-popular structured analysis methodology developed in the 1970’s, the overall focus on the development of effective information systems is the same.
