Business analysis is a must for successful IT

28 March 2006

World Map The importance of business analysis in ensuring the success of an IT project will be highlighted at a BCS event in London on 19 June.

Three speakers will put forward the case that the success of any IT or information system is reliant on understanding the business environment in which it will perform, and how the resulting business, human activity and IT systems are to be aligned.

As a result of this and the changing approaches to solution development and delivery, such as outsourcing, the importance of roles such as business analyst and requirement analyst have increased.

During the evening, Paul Turner of Business & IS Skills will give a brief overview of the increasing need for business analysis and explain the importance of there being a clear definition of best practice in this area.

Craig Rollason, a senior business analyst, will speak about 're-inventing business analysis' and pick up on the new challenges facing the business analyst.

Debra Paul, a director of Assist Knowledge Development, will explain the development and content of the new BCS book Business Analysis, a complimentary copy of which will be given to all attendees.

Pre-booking for this event is essential. BCS members receive discounted entry. The event is sponsored by the International Business Systems Development Forum.
