Business Analyst - The Bridge Transformation

Business Analyst


Put simply, a Business Analyst analyses business performance data and translates the information to help drive positive business change. Often a they will gather complex technical data, simplify it, identify key areas of potential opportunity and present the findings to senior stakeholders. The role revolves heavily around facilitating solutions to present and future business requirements.

Almost every business in the 21st Century has adapted to computer systems, as such a large part of a Business Analysts role is analysing and improving computer systems. However, a general Analyst will work across the company to identify required conditions, then pass that information on for the IT department or a developer to design and integrate.


For larger businesses, or businesses that use a large network of systems, hiring a Senior Business Analyst is often a necessary step to take to ensure maximum business performance. A Senior Analyst often adopts a more conceptual/strategic position in the identification and implementation of driving positive business change.

Compared to a general Analyst, who may be more present in the actual delivery of changes, a Senior Analyst will spend more time reviewing and thinking of long term solutions to business requirements.

However, the role can vary depending on the business structure, so it is always important to find a Senior Business Analyst who possess the right skillset and experience suitable for your specific business requirements.


Companies may sometimes have a team of Analysts, such as, Finance Analysts and Data Analysts. Each analyst would report in to the Business Analyst Manager who could then gather a more rounded conception of the business requirements and deliver more detailed and more effective changes.  

With this more in depth data, an Analyst Manager has more time and resources to lead projects, delegate tasks, create budgets and deadlines and ultimately increase overall business productivity.
