What is Business Analysis?
Business Analysis is the skill of identifying, defining, analyzing a business problem and then, evaluating and recommending
the best solution for an organization. The business analysis skills is a universal skill and can be applied to solve any business problem.
Business analysts use these skills.
Unfortantely, it has become synonymous with IT business analyst as well as business analytics professionals and that is confusing for many.
IT business analyst deals with the understanding, analysis and modelling of IT system requirements to solve customer needs/problems.
The business analytics professionals deal with data (possibly generated by software systems) using statistical and machine learning algorithms to solve customer needs/problems.
Even though, we use business analysts to refer to both of them, they use completely different skill sets to achieve their goals.
