Who's the best fit? 


Talking in terms of the people involved in the SDLC, who is the best fit for a business analyst?

Is it the developer, tester or a technical writer?

Re: Who's the best fit? 

The best Business Analysts I have worked with have been consultants that had been previous developers (Technical Programming and Relational Database background) in places where they had heavy client-facing interactions. They understood the whole SDLC process and could take a project from beginning to end, filling in where needed in any phase of the project.


The SDLC Phases are:

Project Selection - (When I get to a site, the project has usually already been selected...with a projected budget and deadline)



Requirements Definition

Functional Design

System Design

Programming and Development

Integration and Testing

Installation and Acceptance



Retirement (Sun Set)
