The Business Analyst - Information Technology?s Paradigm Shift (Paperback): Vernon Zwiers The Business Analyst - Information Technology’s Paradigm Shift (Paperback)
Vernon Zwiers
R510 R416 Discovery Miles 4 160 Save R94 (18%) Shipped within 4 - 8 working days

The Business Analysts completely dissolves the perception that the IT industry dictates to businesses what IT systems they will use and dispels the myth that business users and IT technicians are from different planets. It suggests how to create an environment in which everybody works together in an exciting and refreshing way – a paradigm shift in the way business analysis projects are done.

The IT industry has to move to a point where it realises that the users of IT systems and the technical personnel are both equally responsible for getting the system to work. The users of the IT system should be an integral part of the team when the system is being put together. This, unfortunately, is not the norm within the industry. It is the business analyst’s responsibility, among others, to make sure that communication flows freely between all the parties involved.

This book gives the business analyst the tools and techniques to find out what the business users of IT systems really need and to guide the project to meet those needs.
