A user persona is an archetype or character that represents a potential user of application. They are formed using characteristics of people who present similar goals, motivations and behaviours. A persona summarizes the target user’s background, goals, and needs related to the product. For the purpose of defining DIONE user requirements, seven different personas were developed, based on the research as well as on the information and knowledge collected during the user requirement workshops and survey.
User Scenarios are high-level narrative describing: Persona’s needs (context why the user would use DIONE and DIONE Toolbox), user's interaction with the platform (tasks and how the user will accomplish the tasks), and goals achieved and benefits.
