Business analysis is the set of tasks and techniques used to work as a liaison among stakeholders in order to understand the structure, policies and operations of an organization, and to recommend solutions that enable the organization to achieve its goals.
Business analysis involves understanding how organizations accomplish their goals and defining the capabilities an organization requires in order to provide products and services to external stakeholders. Business Analysts (BAs) must analyze and synthesize information provided by a large number of people who interact with the business, such as customers, staff, information technology (IT) professionals and executives. The BA is responsible for eliciting the actual needs of stakeholders, not simply their expressed desires. The BA also works to facilitate communication between organizational units. In particular, BAs often play a central role in aligning the needs of business units with capabilities delivered by information technology, and may serve as a “translator” between those groups.
