Business Analysis is one of the most critical phases of the software development process and a key reason why software development projects fail. In emerging and underserved business environments, it is often overlooked resulting in software systems that do not function properly or as the client requires. Business Systems Analysis is the process of studying a procedure or business process/operation to identify its goals and purposes and then create automated systems and procedures that will streamline and achieve them in the most efficient way (i.e., digitising them).

Business Analysis is critical in the world today as only 16.2% of IT projects complete on time and within budget, 52.7% of projects overrun their budget, 31.1% of projects are cancelled before they are completed, over 56% of defects within a project occurs in identifying, analysing, modelling, documenting, validating and verifying requirement thus 90% of Business Analysis skills are required on any project. Accurately communicating requirements (Business, Stakeholder, Functional and Non-Functional) is the root of success for all software development projects.
