The business analysis profession has evolved significantly over the last couple of years in the UK. The valuable contributions made by Business Analysts are now becoming recognised at all levels of the organisation.

Business Analysts now exist in a variety of roles at the heart of business change to ascertain problems or identify opportunity areas from a business or technology perspective.
