Business Analysis & Requirements Management
Business Analysis is the discipline of identifying business requirements and creating or providing solutions to cater to those business requirements. The Business Analyst position is uniquely placed in an organization to provide a strong link between the Business Community and Information Technology (IT) departments. The role of an IT Business Analyst is central and pivotal in enabling project performance and has been gaining momentum in the recent times due to the increased rate of project failures, primarily due to improper Business Analysis.
A Business Analyst has a critical role throughout the project life cycle. Virtually, he is the client within the IT team, who reviews the project deliverables that are related to requirements, solution design and testing, to ensure business needs are addressed.
Business Analysts today are also involved in the development of project plans and often provide project management skills, when these skills are not available in other project participants. The role of a Business Analyst has moved beyond traditional “Requirements Management” and companies across the globe need to quickly create workforce trained and certified on the requisite Business Analysis skills to cater to future demand.
