Area Of Business Analysis

There are at least four types of business analysis:

Business Developer

Business 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 (generally within IT).

Industries

BAs work in different industries such as finance, banking, insurance, telecoms, utilities, software services, government and so on. Due to working on projects at a fairly high level of abstraction, BAs can switch between any and all industries.

  • The business domain subject areas BAs may work in include workflow, billing, mediation, provisioning and customer relationship management.
  • The telecom industry has mapped these functional areas in their Telecommunications Operational Map (eTOM) model, Banking in the Information Framework (IFW) and Emergency agencies in the Prevention Preparation Response and Recovery model (PPRR).
  • A robust analytical skill set, an endless curiosity and a penchant for thinking the impossible.
  • Finally, Business Analysts do not have a predefined and fixed role, as they can take part in operations scaling, sales planning, strategy devising or the developmental process.
