Top Contributors to the Knowledge Area of Business/Systems Analysis 

 I'd like to drive the community to share their opinion on who influenced the knowledge area of business/systems analysis the most. I think it will be useful to compose a list of such persons and their impact to the area. I'll try to give an example. :)

  • Karl Wiegers - Author of a series of books on software requirements.

My Vote:

Tom DeMarco:   Drove home the key priciples of business  analysis:  Need for a logical, natural partitioning  in order to properly decompose, systems at higher level of abstraction are non-sequential, and decomposition of processes require a parallel decomposition of essential interfaces. 

Of course, if you are in the BPMN crowd, you just scratch your head and say "What?" to the above.

So, I thought about De Marco as that was my entry point into analysis back in the day.

But I have to vote for the 3 amigos who invented the Unified Modelling Language (UML). Grady Booch, James Rumbaugh and Ivar Jacobson. Don't know enough about them to pick one in particular over the others.

I’ve heard “The End is Near!” for Business Analysts for almost 20 years.  Waterfall project management, with its need for formal requirements, is dead…a dinosaur…so 1990’s.  To be honest, that’s mostly true.  With the publishing of the Agile Manifesto in 2001 there was no need for a 2-inch-...
