THE CASE FOR BUSINESS ANALYSTS
Business analysts are responsible for analyzing the business needs of their clients and stakeholders to help determine business solutions to business problems. A key facilitator in the project management process, the business analyst serves as a liaison between the business side of an enterprise and the information technology department or external service providers.
The business analyst understands challenges, recognizes opportunities, and recommends solutions that enable an organization to achieve its goals. Common alternate titles are business systems analyst, systems analyst, and functional analyst.
