Contributor(s): Paul, Debra [Editor] | Yeates, Donald [Editor].
Publisher: Swidon The British Computer Society 2008Description: xvii, 235 p.ISBN: 9781902505701.Subject(s): Business analysisDDC classification: 658.4032 Summary: Business Analysis provides workable skills and techniques, underpinned with academic theory. It is a practical introductory guide for anyone involved with any aspect of business analysis or improving the effectiveness of IT and its alignment with the organisations' business objectives. Reports about IT systems which do not satisfy business requirements, or that fail to realise the expected benefits to organisations are rife. In response, companies have increased their effort in the areas of programme, project and service management, which has undoubtedly produced improvements. However, without a comprehensive understanding of the business environment in which any IT or Information System will need to perform, and how the resulting business and IT systems are to be aligned, real success is unlikely ever to be achieved. Many business analysts have a business background and have a limited understanding of IT and how computer systems are developed. This, in conjunction with changes to the way businesses approach RandD and product delivery, such as outsourcing, has increased the need for the techniques explored in Business Analysis.
