Technical vs. Business Analyst Balance 
Hi,

I have recently begun a Technical Analyst graduate program with a company.
My University degree focused on the Business Analyst aspects of IT.
But, we also did technical aspects (C# and Java, etc.)

The course I did basically covers 50% business modules, & 50% technical modules. I preferred the more technical modules. During my internship last year, I spent 6 months working as a Business Analyst, focused more on the testing aspect of projects.

I did enjoy the testing side of things, but I would like to be more on the technical side of things, rather than talking to the business, gathering requirements, etc.

I have recently been moved to Java Developer, but it is quite difficult for me. I know I have only just started, and i need time to get familiar with how the team works, etc.

But, I would like to know is there a role in IT where you sit in between the BA role & a developer role?
I am more interested in the Design (UI/UX) & Database (SQL) rather than "hardcore" java, classes, etc.

I have heard terms like Technical Architect & Systems Analyst thrown about, but I don't know if these are the roles which I'm looking for.

Could someone please advise me as to which role they think I would be more suited to, or am I looking the wrong way?

Thanks a lot for reading this, and I appreciate any responses.

Re: Technical vs. Business Analyst Balance 
No replies yet and I might not be of help to you ... But, Hi. --- My first computer job was a Consultant. I used to be a pilot for a Government consulting firm and used to hang out in the computer center where ever we went nation-wide ... anyway, they later sold the Jet and I was asked if I wanted to work as a Consultant ... I said OK. As a Consultant, I worked with everyone from various computer centers to Big-Shot Politicians ... I got requirements and told the programmers what we needed ... Heck, I even did programming too ... So, My first computer job was a Jack-Of-All-Trades Consultant ... Everything from Business to Technical and because of that range of stuff, I can still work on plenty of contracts now ... as long as they don't want some degree ... That is another thread. Learn what you can in every project role, so you are not just one thing ... Have Fun.

Let me start by saying that a business rule is far more granular than a business decision, and that the two should never be confused. Today, it is an unfortunate fact that some vendors would have potential clients believe that there is synergy between business rules and business decisions. Perhaps this is because in an effort to differentiate one b...

Traceability is one of the lesser understood aspects of business analysis. It is indeed quite hard to maintain good traceability unless automated. This is why BABoK® warns us being theoretical about traceability. In this article, I would like to explain traceability concepts with help of an example. BABoK® definition of traceability: ...
