How we provide business analysis services
The Syndicode team identifies the project head, sponsors, clients, and influencers. Thus, we can properly prioritize the project’s requirements and ensure the stakeholder’s maximal satisfaction. Next, we add the stakeholders to the project’s dashboard to real-time review the progress and leave feedback. Additionally, we hold regular meetings where you can share your vision with the development team.
2.Identify business objectives
We put business strategy and objectives on paper to have better focus. Several techniques help us understand competitors, determine the client’s business’s strengths and weaknesses, and ensure everyone involved in the project is on the same page. Our specialists write down business objectives that are specific, measurable, feasible, aligned with the company vision, and have a deadline. Then we brainstorm the options and present them in a business case document.
3.Define the project scope
We compile all the research done in the previous steps into a scope definition document. It outlines the project objectives, restrictions, deliverables, due dates, and items out of scope. The project team will refer to the project scope statement to ensure they’re on track and not at risk of scope creep. Based on the scope, we plan resources and project timelines, too.
Our experts review the requirements and ensure they are complete, testable, and implementation-neutral. Since we accommodate the agile technique, business analysts prioritize the requirements for per sprint delivery. In most cases, our analysts also prepare a change control plan to accommodate changes and avoid scope creep. After getting approval from the stakeholders, we ensure the project team can conveniently access the project documents.
5.Support the project through SDLC
Being a business analysis company, we are involved in the technical implementation of the project. Our experts ensure that everything aligns with the plan. Their tasks involve:
- Reviewing the technical deliverables
- Gathering feedback from the development team
- Engaging with the QA team
- Managing changes
- Facilitating user acceptance once the requirement has been implemented
We also evaluate the development progress and suggest modifications for improvement.

Reasons to outsource business analysis services
Gain better control over your project
A business analyst gathers ideas, change requests, and questions from the project stakeholders. They analyze those requests and work with the development team to find an efficient solution. An analyst also ensures that the development team understands the tasks and that the outcome aligns with the client’s expectations and project objectives.
A business analyst investigates your actual needs and defines the scope and features for your project. Having everything sorted out and prioritized will prevent you from developing incorrect or unnecessary software. Moreover, a business analyst can advise tweaking your business processes to eliminate excessive spending.
Make better decisions
A business analyst gets to the root of your business needs. This person understands your project better than anyone and may provide ideas on valuable improvements, new business benefits, monetization channels, etc. Besides, a BA works with project documentation and will give you data you can use to base your decisions.

What does a business analyst do?
In a nutshell, a business analyst bridges the gap between the business and the IT team. They access business processes, determine requirements, provide recommendations, and report to stakeholders and executives.
Business analysts initially ask numerous questions about your business, processes, goals, the software idea, and vision. They use data analytics to understand what changes to development processes, features, and tools can improve the product’s or service’s value.
Typically, the job of an IT business analyst includes outlining problems, solutions, and opportunities for a business, creating time and cost estimates, planning and monitoring, reporting, defining business requirements, prioritizing and documenting them.
How much do business analysis services cost?
Since every development project is unique, there is no one way to do business analysis, especially BAaaS. Hence it’s hard to give an exact price. Some projects require up to several hours to identify your or your customer’s pain, competitors, and market trends and compile a list of efficient development tools. Then some projects need complex multistage analysis.
In addition, a BA’s work involves constant communication between stakeholders and the development team. The more people are involved, the longer it may take to sign off all the essential documents.
Finally, where you hire your business analyst can affect the price. Thus, a business analysis company in the USA will charge around $50–$70 per hour, while in an offshore country, a BA will charge something between $30–$40 per hour.
Summarizing it all, we can say that in our experience, business analysis services cost roughly 8–12% of the total project cost.
What is the importance of business analysis in software development?
Business analysis is a vital part of the development process. A BA looks into the scope of your project, establishes the standards and requirements it should meet, facilitates communication between stakeholders and the IT team, and supports the project implementation.
Skipping IT business analysis consulting, you risk getting incomplete software that doesn’t solve the problem it should. In this case, you’ll have to rebuild it, spending more resources than expected.
Another reason you should get BAaaS is that a BA works as an interpreter between you and your IT team. They translate your requirements into clear tasks the developers can work on. And reporting back to stakeholders, a business analyst in software development will break down technical complexities so they can easily understand what’s happening.
How to choose a business analysis provider for software development?
First off, we recommend you check the business analysis company’s portfolio and client reviews to ensure their BAaaS can meet your expectations. Then, you’ll probably want to interview their specialists. First, a BA should be a good communicator, problem-solver, and critical thinker. They should be able to work through challenging situations and involve the right people at the right time.
Further, a business analyst should be able to select the right tools for your project instead of using their go-to set. Finally, great business analysts are proactive, committed to deadlines, and have solid project management skills.
Full-cycle software development companies are more likely to provide the opportunity for a business analyst to dive deep into all aspects of software development. And if you’re happy with the results of the business analysis services, you can fast-start the development since the IT team is readily available.
How often do entrepreneurs use the services of business analysts?
The US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) predicts steady growth in demand for analyst jobs, including ones in the IT-sphere. Businesses over the globe keep pivoting to products that are marketed or distributed through digital platforms. And they make investments in getting crucial data for edging competition, problem identification, and solutions search. That’s what business analyst does.
Briefly, business analysis as a service (BAaaS) is not going anywhere. If you’re wondering how many times you’ll have to turn for IT business analysis services, the answer is simple. You need an IT business analyst whenever you want to get involved in a software project where the stakeholders are known and the requirements are described.
