Business Analysis Career vs EA (Bus Architect) Career path 

Hi Everyone,

I would like to please get some opinions around a BA role vs a Enterprise Architecture role (e.g. Business Architecture)? I am a junior BA,background in QA/Testing with a Business education. I have come across an opportunity to join a EA team.... My concern is Enterprise architecture seems more 'technical' and less 'creative' than BA work(e.g. Use cases, Wireframes, Test cases,process modelling).

Your comments would be most welcome :)

Cheers,Tselane

The role and responsibilities of a BA can vary widely from one place to another ... and can overlap other roles.


A Business Analyst usually works on a single change that supports a specific business improvement ... they are assigned to project stakeholders for that project.

A Enterprise Architecture looks at the Big Picture across the whole business (not just one project) and sees how eveything works together and looks for opportunities to improve future business direction ... which could involve a BA to give insite and contribute to the solution.

The Technical part could be seeing what equipment might be needed to handle future business needs.

Tselane,

The following two interview questions talk about these topics.

What is Enterprise Architecture?

What is a Business Architect and is it different from a Business Analyst?

Hope this helps.
