I have recently observed a development to the role or position of “Business System Analyst”, or some other mixture of the business analyst and the systems analyst, the business facet of the problem, and the specialized facet of the solution. There are a variety of known reasons for this reversal of the split between business and technical roles over the past handful of decades. Over the years the development has been toward specialists that evaluate the business problem and other specialists that describe the details of the specialized solution.
The main rationale has been the increasing difficulty of the business processes requiring specialized knowledge and the equally increasing invasiveness of technology into those business procedures also requiring specialized and significantly different specialized knowledge and skills. The intricacy of business and the intricacy of technology have not diminished, why will there be a trend towards consolidation of the business analyst and technical specialist / designer roles? To begin with, organizations still haven’t bounced back from the Big Recession and there still is a consolidation of roles due to a decrease in staffing. More business experts are also project managers and more task managers are also playing the role of business analyst, etc.
The arrival of agile software development has also impacted the role of the business analyst. “Pure” business experts are looked at with some skepticism by the artists who strongly support the idea of the developers coping directly with the business community with no intermediaries. You might find yourself in a dual role, explicitly – taking the name of Business System Analyst or some such – or implicitly, by doing the ongoing work of both assignments without reputation.
If therefore the assistance to success is the same as when you have to do both a project manager and business analyst role at the same time: separate the roles as much as possible. · Trying to take into account the system specifications while determining the problem and refining what the business stakeholders want will likely result in a lot of things being skipped or skipped over.
Ideally if you have to play both functions, you will have another business analyst that can offer some feedback emphasizing one or the other role. For example, if you are concentrating on the business side, the other business analyst can provide some technical commentary and review. Otherwise, if you are a lone ranger, you may have to try to split the roles in some way to be able to focus completely on business analyst functions in one role and technical functions in the other.
Below, let’s have a glance at Coke (KO), American Express (AXP), and Burlington Northern (BNI) (which a prominent value investing academics said was a crazy/crazy offer or some such. 4.33/shares in pretax cash flow per share. That is clearly a pretty stunning discovery, for me even. I think a lot of value investors were puzzled at what appeared as if a rise stock purchase by Buffett at that time, but it fits right in with the 10x pretax benchmark perfectly.

He didn’t pay up because KO was an extremely high-quality business; he paid what he pays normally. So this one doesn’t quite fit the mold, but let’s have a quick look at it (it generally does not fit only because he didn’t pay almost exactly 10x pretax earnings, but far less). By the way, I know that this is only around cost per share of the shares. There could be some changes that may throw this off someplace, but I don’t think it would change things materially. So we don’t even have to visit very significantly with that one. It appears like Buffett paid 9.6x world wide web income for AXP.
3.81/talk about, so he paid a 6.9x pretax profits. It appears like he cheaply got AXP really. It got pretty cheap in 2009 2009 too. It looks like he started buying USB in 2006 but maybe earlier. It shows up in 2006 on the annual record first. 4.32 in 2013 and the stock traded in the range of 7.4 – 9.5x that amount throughout the year.
