My area of specialisation includes Business Intelligence or Data warehousing Development. In my view, this book has all that is required to understand the job of a Business Analyst. As a Software Developer, I believe understanding the role of a B.A. is very crucial as it stands as a pillar in the whole Software Development Life Cycle. B.A. is the one who takes the requirement from the client and passes on to, we developers, and then we kick off our job. In a nutshell, B.A. plays a central part, especially to all the Developers involved in SDLC and hence I recommend this book to all the Software developers across the world to understand the complete job of a BA, that gaps are bridged and roles and responsibilities are made clear at both the ends that directly relates to accomplishment of project abiding to SLA guidelines with zero flaws. I am sure an approach to learn B.A role for any developer shall earn customer delight. - Anuprav Gupta, Software Engineer, Tech Mahindra


B.A. is the one who holds strong functional knowledge about business and hence confirms a special place in any SDLC. It is the B. A who gives the complete functional requirement to us (QA Team) based on which we do the quality and functionality checks of the product/project. At any point of time if the QA team needs a discussion on requirement he/she has to reach the B.A. Hence it sounds very clear about the prominent position of B.A. in the software industry. Besides, this book is very helpful to all the Software Testers to understand the roles and responsibilities of B.A. and their dependencies and expectations on B.A. The book is written in a very simple language and explains its objective using various facts, figures and models. Hence, I highly recommend this book to all the Testers to get through with and achieve excellence in their projects without any delay. - Prajna Kargupta, QA Analyst, Tata Consultancy Services
