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.
