Data collection constitutes a methodological
process of collecting, collating, and analyzing information
to present solutions that are relevant to research questions.
There are a myriad of data collection methodologies
(Schick-Makaroff et al., 2016). The data collection aspect
of research is mutual to all fields of research including
Information Technology (IT). While the data collection
methods vary, they are founded on some basic data
collection tools and focus on capturing accurate data that
remains the same (Kabir, 2016). The objective of all data
collection/requirements determinations is to get access to
quality evidence that leads to quality data analysis and
permits the development of credible and convincing
answer to research questions or solutions (Goertzen, 2017).
Regardless of the area or preference of study, either
quantitative or qualitative, accurate requirements,
accurate requirements gathering methods and analysis
techniques are critical to ensuring the integrity of
research. In this paper, robust data collection methods
and analysis techniques in Information Technology are
