What a Business Analyst Apprentice will do for your business

Having a IS Business Analyst Apprentice  as part of your Digital team will benefit your business in many ways. Here are just a few ways in which a Business Analyst Apprentice can help grow your business:

Increased ROI – Your ROI measures the efficiency of an investment or solution, adn ultimately determines the value of a business. This is calculated by dividing the benefit of an investment by the cost of the investment. An IS Business Analyst’s goal is to increase  your ROI, by deciding how to increase the benefit achieved as well as decreasing the cost of implementation. They will find more cost-efficient solutions which will lower costs. They increase the benefits by determining and prioritising new business needs and making appropriate and necessary changes.

Successful Projects – An IS Business Analyst is a vital component of a project. Having a strong Business Analyst working on your project can essentially save it from failure. Whilst the Project Manager will oversee a project and keep it on track, having a Business Analyst working alongside will ensure that the Project Manager leads the project in the right
direction. The Business Analyst will decide which projects will best achieve a specific business objective.

Lower Costs – One of the key components of an IS Business Analyst’s job is to reduce company costs and project rework. They also identify and implement more cost-effective solutions.

Collaboration with Stakeholders –A Business Analyst will reduce the amount of time wasted through reworking on your projects by effectively collaborating with stakeholders. They will determine the most appropriate and effective business requirements at the beginning of the project so that the steps can be implemented properly throughout the project.

Ultimately, having a Business Analyst Apprentice within your business is vital to any organisation if you want to ensure that your business meets its goals in a cost-effective manner. Read more about the IS Business Analyst Apprenticeship on the Institute for Apprenticeships.
