As business analyst you bridge the gap between business and ICT. You collaborate and facilitate a discussion and requirements specification between business and the technology team.

You understand fast the context, the objectives and the scope of the project, what the client has today and where he heads for.
You gather the user requirements through different techniques (documentation, meetings, trainings, etc.) and you define the scope and requirements in a functional documentation.
Taking into account all the quality constraints, you take an active role in the creation of the adequate solution for the client.
You support the experts in the definition of the technical constraints and in the design of the solution. You are an actor of the project progress, constantly in relation with the client and the project delivery team.
You report to the project manager, or you can act as the project manager on smaller projects.
