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.

Re: Top Contributors to the Knowledge Area of Business/Systems Analysis 

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.
