Business Analyst Roles: -> BA is the one who involves in gathering Business Requirement from clients. -> BA though not having a good insight into technical knowledge in analyzing which technology can solve the business needs of the clients. He should be aware of various different technologies and updates. -> BA and Technical Architect should interact with the clients. Project Manager if needed can join in the client meeting. -> BA should prepare the Business Requirement Document (BRD), Use Case Document (UCD), Use Case Diagram, User Scenario Document (USD) and Test Cases. -> BA should interact with Project Manager, Software Developers and QA team consistently to meet the Business Requirements. -> BA should interact with testing team and clarify their doubts regarding any issues in testing against the requirements. BA should review the test case and test results of QA team. -> BA should able to communicate and present the demo of the entire application. -> BA should maintain the entire documentation of the project. He is responsible for maintaining the organization internal repository for the assigned project. -> In this present era, there is no such profile called System Analyst, they are called as Business Analyst. Business Analyst should have excellent communication skill, excellent documentation and writing skill. He should be good in converting the business needs of the clients into Business Requirements. He doesn’t need to be a tech savvy, but he should be good in merging the business needs with the right technology. He needs to provide the right solutions with the cutting edge technology to the business needs at the right time.
