Modern businesses require effective business analysis in order to be successful in a competitive business world. Business analysis involves taking information gathered from a variety of sources and analyzing to forecast future trends, find ways to make improvements in business strategies, improve businesses operations, and make smart business decisions to improve the bottom line.

So, understanding key marketing areas is essential to helping a business generate revenue and cut down on excess waste.  According to Nancy Nee, vice president of Global Product Strategy, ESI International, there are some key business analysis trends that will be prominent in 2013.

Nee says that BAs will become the new PMs. From the Agile perspective, project management disappears and we focus on project leadership, project delivery, project execution. The role of the BA in agile is about delivering value from the user story perspective. “The role of a project manager become obsolete? Maybe, maybe not. Only time will tell,” she said.
