FAQ's

Standard definition of Business Analysis as defined by IIBA®.

 

“Business Analysis is the practice of enabling change in an organizational context, by defining needs and recommending solutions that deliver value to stakeholders. The set of tasks and techniques that are used to perform business analysis are defined in A Guide to the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge® (BABOK® Guide).”

 

Business analysis is used to identify and articulate the need for change in how organizations work, and to facilitate that change.

Job titles for business analysis practitioners include not only business analyst, but also business systems analyst, systems analyst, requirements engineer, process analyst, product manager, product owner, enterprise analyst, business architect, management consultant, business intelligence analyst, data scientist, and more. Many other jobs, such as management, project management, product management, software development, quality assurance, and interaction design rely heavily on business analysis skills for success.

So the spread of Business Analysis as a profession is very wide and as stated in the definition of Business Analysis in the earlier question, Business Analyst enables change by defining needs (requirements) and recommending solutions to deliver value to stakeholders.

The Business Analyst is an agent of change. Business Analysis is a disciplined approach for introducing and managing change to organizations.

A Business Analyst identifies and defines the solutions that will maximize the value delivered by an organization to its stakeholders.

Business analysts work across all levels of an organization and may be involved in everything from defining strategy, to creating the enterprise architecture, to taking a leadership role by defining the goals and requirements for programs and projects or supporting continuous improvement in its technology and processes.

If we take an example of an IT company and it’s non-IT client, then Business Analyst at the client-side will work to identify the changes, the organization requires in order to achieve its overall business goals along with defining the solutions against changes.

If any change at the Client company’s side requires IT development then the Client company will contact the IT company and will engage with the Business Analyst at the IT company side to elicit the requirements to enable the change.

Business Analyst at IT company side will define the requirement and recommend the IT solution after detailed analysis and deliberation with his IT team and client.
 

Both terms Business Analysis and Business Analytics are being used interchangeably many times. Though there are many similarities between the two practices both can not be called similar in any case.

There are many differences between Business Analysis and Business Analytics as practices like,

Business Analysis is more focused on business functions in terms of requirements, architecture, process, etc. Some examples of Business Analysis functions are:

  – Creating a Business Architecture
  – Preparing a Business Case
  – Conducting a risk assessment
  – Requirements elicitation
  – Business Process Analysis
  – Documentation of Requirements

Business Analytics, on the other hand, is more focused on data functions like past data & statistical analysis to find insights to enable news changes. Few examples of Business Analytics are,

  – Using a data warehouse to report past performance
  – Creating a dashboard to track key performance metrics
  – Using statistical methods to predict future sales based on past sales
  – Running simulations to investigate different scenarios

There are many job roles/titles associated with Business Analysis practices like Business Analyst, Business Architect, Business Process Analyst, IT Business Analyst, Requirements Engineer, Business Systems Analyst, Systems Analyst, Data Analyst, Functional Architect, and Usability/UX Analyst.

Every company which has sizable revenue and requires a team to analyse the challenges and opportunities in their business hires Business Analysts. As India is the largest hub of Software outsourcing so we see many opportunities for IT Business Analysts.

Every IT outsourcing Company in India regardless of the size needs Business Analysts to run their projects. Also many big global non IT companies like HSBC, Citi Bank, Barclays, John Deere, American Express, Master Card, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, Vodafone, BNP Paribas are the name of few hire Business Analysts in their IT centres in India.

Apart from above categories Indian Businesses also hires Business Analysts like banks (like SBI, HDFC, ICICI, Axis etc), Insurance Companies, online startups (like Paytm, FlipKart, Ola, Zomato, Byzus etc) , consultancy companies (like Crisil, KPMG, Mckinsey & Co, Boston Consulting Group, Deloitte, PwC, Tata Strategic Management Group etc) , Indian group of companies (like Tata Group, Aditya Birla group, Reliance group, L&T Group etc) also hire Business Analysts.

So there many types of companies hire Business Analysts for different functions and our focus is more on the IT Business Analysts where opportunities are also most.

Domain knowledge is very important in the Business Analyst profession as in every project you are trying to solve a specific problem related to specific business. And before solving the problem you need to understand Business problems first in totality.

Understanding a particular business and it’s different dimensions is called domain knowledge. Like if you have a good knowledge of Banking business then it will always be easy for you to speak & collabreate with your banking client in their own language and jargon.

So understanding of a particular type of Business is called Domain knowledge.

Broadly speaking, professionals with education/experience in CS/IT or professionals with experience in non-IT industries (Banking, Insurance, Healthcare, Hospitality, Logistics, Retail, etc.) can aspire to be BAs. The ones with education/experience in IT can contribute to defining and designing the software applications, while those from non-IT background can provide expertise about business processes, regulations, policies, customers/products/services insight.

Within the IT industry, professionals with designations such as Software Developer, Tech Lead, Tester, Quality Analyst, QA Lead, Technical Writer, Project Manager, etc. can target the Business Analyst positions. On the non-IT side, professionals or executives working in Operations, Sales, Marketing, Delivery, Finance, HR functions in Banks, Insurance companies, Hospitals, Travel companies, Shipping/Logistics Companies, FMCG, Pharmaceutical Companies, etc. can target BA positions.

Business Analyst is a techno-functional position with a lot of their tasks focused on working with other people. We have summarized below some of the key skills needed to get and succeed in a BA position

Soft Skills:
   -Communication Skills
   -Presentation Skills
   -Teamwork & Interpersonal Skills
   -Creative Thinking
   -Critical Thinking

Hard Skills:
   -Interviewing Skills
   -Requirements Analysis & Documentation
   -Requirements Modeling
   -Awareness about BA Tools needed for points mentioned above
   -Awareness about how technology is used to solve business problems
   -Ability to understand & analyze business processes, policies, problems
   -Ability to research and learn new topics
   -Knowledge of Software Development processes such as Waterfall, Agile-Scrum, Kanban

In terms of educational qualification, a degree in Computer Science or IT will be helpful. MBA with IT specialization will be an added advantage.

Due to the techno-functional nature of the role, as such anyone can target the BA position. Having the right educational background can give a person head start, but people without such educational background have also successfully become BAs.

Anyone who is ready to put in efforts and learn the skills expected from a BA, can aspire to become a Business Analyst. If you have made up your mind to get the BA role, then perseverance is another quality that is needed. It may take some time to get the role, but if you keep learning, improving yourself, and keep trying, you will get the coveted BA position.

The International Institute of Business Analysis™ (IIBA®) is a non-profit professional association serving the growing field of business analysis. As the global thought leader and voice of the business analysis community, IIBA® actively supports the recognition of the profession, and works to maintain global standards for the ongoing development of the practice and certifications.

The Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK) is a book that is a collection of commonly used Business Analysis practices across the globe. The BABOK describes various BA tasks, tools, techniques, and the different perspectives of how Business Analysis differs when it is done in IT, Agile, Business Architecture, Business Intelligence, and Business Process Modeling areas.

MCAL conducts Master Business Analysis training that is based on BABOK and approved by IIBA. This means that when you attend Master Business Analysis training, the tools, task, techniques that you will learn are aligned with the global Business Analysis best practices.

ECBA stands for Entry Certificate in Business Analysis. ECBA is a good certification for anyone who wants to learn in detail about Business Analysis and start their BA career. The ECBA exam tests the knowledge of the aspirant in terms of business analysis tasks, tools, and techniques. Getting ECBA will mean that you have detailed knowledge about the process, principles, practices, tools, tasks, and techniques used by Business Analysts.

CCBA stands for Certification of Competency in Business Analysis. CCBA is certification is a good target for anyone who has collective BA experience of 2 to 3 years. The CCBA exam tests the Business Analysis tasks, tools, and techniques knowledge of the aspirant as well as his/her ability to apply that knowledge. The current designation of a CCBA aspirant need not be Business Analyst. However, in their current role, they should have been exposed and performed some of BA tasks such as requirements gathering, analysis, modeling, and documentation. Getting CCBA certified means that you not only know Business Analysis in detail, but you have also done actual BA work for a few years. CCBA certificate will help a person to get a full-time BA role or an existing BA to grow to Senior Business Analyst role.

CBAP stands for Certified Business Analysis Professional. Professionals who have been working as BAs for more than 5 years should target the CBAP certification. The CBAP exams tests the aspirant’s experience and ability to choose the best strategy to handle tricky business/project situations. Getting a CBAP certification would tell colleagues, managers, and recruiters that you are an expert BA and capable of handling a team of BAs and/or complex global project assignments.
