Business Analysis Image

Business analysis is a vital instrument within the business environment to ensure that information technology is able to provide effective solutions for business enterprises. The development of business analysts through a suite of qualifications will have a positive impact on the broader economy of South Africa. It will also assist with bringing South Africa inline with international trends and satisfy industry requirements.

The qualifying learner will be able to:

  • Analyse a business scenario.
  • Develop a business case.
  • Compile user requirement specifications.
  • Develop functional specifications.
  • Monitor quality assurance activities throughout the life cycle of the project.


A business analyst works as a liaison amongst stakeholders to elicit, analyse, communicate, and validate requirements for changes to business processes, policies, and information systems. The business analyst understands business problems and opportunities in the context of the requirements and recommends solutions that enable the organisation to achieve its goals. Traditionally business analysts were drawn from senior information technology (IT) and business people, whereas this qualification provides lower-level access for the development of such competencies. It has also been developed to enable learners to access higher education and provide flexible access to life-long learning.
