What You will Learn

A business analyst is someone who analyzes an organization or business domain (real or hypothetical) and documents its business or processes or systems, assessing the business model or its integration with technology. The role of a systems analyst can also be defined as a bridge between the business problems and the technology solutions. Here business problems can be anything about business systems, for example the model, process, or method. The technology solutions can be the use of technology architecture, tools, or software application. So System Analysts are required to analyze, transform and ultimately resolve the business problems with the help of technology.

There are at least four types of business analysis:

  • Strategic planning – to identify the organization's business needs
  • Business model analysis – to define the organization's policies and market approaches
  • Process design – to standardize the organization’s workflows
  • Systems analysis – the interpretation of business rules and requirements for technical systems

The Business Analyst, sometimes is someone who is a part of the business operation and works with Information Technology to improve the quality of the services being delivered, sometimes assisting in Integration and Testing of new solutions.
