Business architect as a career path for Business analyst


When you have been working for Х years as an analyst in IT-delivery, one day the following question arises – “In what direction to grow and develop?”

In most cases, the main career path is a transition to managerial positions - BA team lead, resource manager, BA practice leader, in some cases - account or business relationship manager.

And what about those who want to grow further as a specialist solving more complex problems the business faces?

For such analysts, quality growth to a business architect can be an option.

I'll tell what the business architecture is and who the business architects are, what skills and qualities they should have, where business analysts and business architects are similar and where they differ. I'll also provide some examples of business architecture tasks from my practice.

This talk will be useful for senior and middle analysts who are thinking about a further career, as well as for any other specialists to learn more about the business analysis domain.
