What is Business Analysis?

Business Analysis is the skill of identifying, defining, analyzing a business problem and then, evaluating and recommending the best solution for an organization. The business analysis skills is a universal skill and can be applied to solve any business problem. Business analysts use these skills.
Unfortantely, it has become synonymous with IT business analyst as well as business analytics professionals and that is confusing for many. IT business analyst deals with the understanding, analysis and modelling of IT system requirements to solve customer needs/problems. The business analytics professionals deal with data (possibly generated by software systems) using statistical and machine learning algorithms to solve customer needs/problems. Even though, we use business analysts to refer to both of them, they use completely different skill sets to achieve their goals.

Which IIBA certification exam I will be eligible for?

You will be eligible for ECBA certification exam. Please refer to the IIBA Certification pricing page for latest updates to the fee.

Student Testimonials


Harishkumar Chettiar, Assistant Consultant, Tata Consultancy Services, Singapore.

I would like to thank Techcanvass and its complete team for taking good care of me through out the course and being flexible with me w.r.t. schedule and content of the course.

I had opted for an online course in Techcanvass through Skype when I was in Sydney, Australia. Satisfaction level was above my expectation as credit goes to Abhishek Srivastava,

who is not only the head of Techcanvass but also a master in BA course work who is not only sharp with his practical examples but someone who encouraged discussion through out the course.

With 8+ years of experience in IT I had good enough background of how BA works as my experience was widely distributed Technically as well as functionally in Banking domain.

But Abhishek made sure that he tailor made the course for me so that I get what I want and we don't waste time in things that I already know.

Abhishek has a very high command on his communication and and has a very clear picture on the various Business Analysis aspects theoretically as well as practically with his vast experience in IT field. Off the course he has always been available with his valued expertise and knowledge and his ever ready nature of helping in need.

It has also been great to read the blogs and articles issued by Techcanvass thorough LinkedIn as they are useful and also gives you a road-map for this ever changing dynamic field of IT.

I would also like to thank Shiwangi who made sure that I had a smooth on boarding process within Techcanvass and also with regards to my sessions and there timings.

I would highly recommend Techcanvass to anyone who is interested in making a career in Business Analysis to join BA sessions online or in classroom as it has the best mentor that I have come across and also the content provided are up to the point which can be completely related to work.

Thank you Abhishek and the complete team of Techcanvass
