HELP ME HELP YOU: THE MUST-HAVES BEHIND PROJECT DEVELOPMENT

“What’s broken?” “I don’t know.” “He’s on third base.” Many times a support call with a customer ends up sounding more like an Abbot and Costello sketch than a rational conversation between two subject matter experts — a business customer and an application developer. Sometimes we, the developers, need to educate our clients as to how to help us find what’s wrong and come to a correct solution.

BUSINESS ANALYST — A PROGRAMMER’S BEST FRIEND

With the current emphasis on Agile Methodologies, we can forget that there is another way of looking at the application development game. Somewhat reminiscent of the Systems Analyst of the waterfall methodologies of the 60s and 70s, the Business Analyst focuses on uncovering the requirements, details, and solution descriptions before the actual coding begins.
