A Business Analyst examines the structure and functions of businesses, government departments and not-for-profit organisations in order to align their activities and core structure to meet their business goals. Solutions usually include a systems development component, but may also involve process improvement, organisational change or strategic planning and policy development proposals.
Business Analysts will be required to:
- identify strengths and weaknesses within an organisation
- plan business strategies
- analyse organisational policies
- process business models
- analyse the IT/Technical business needs of an organisation
A Business Analyst is often the link between the business side of an organisation or company and the relevant service providers.
Business Analysts can work in industries from finance and banking, through to insurance, software services and telecommunications.
The role of a Business Analyst can vary across companies and industries. Their role may be within sales planning, strategy devising or business development.
