Business Process Analysis
The overall objective of any business is to become more efficient, effective and profitable. Our goal is ultimately to determine and identify the resources and changes necessary to achieve those goals.
There are several important objectives to keep in mind when conducting a business analysis. Goals must be considered not only in terms of the outcome you are hoping to achieve, but also in terms of the individual goals and constraints of key stakeholders and departments contributing to or who are impacted by the analysis project.
Our analysts can help you identify ways to improve efficiency, reduce costs, identify and implement solutions, meet project deadlines and accurately document the necessary requirements. More specifically our analysts will typically:
- Identify and understand what the business does, its purpose and how it currently operates.
- Identify and document objectives, risks and key controls
- Identify roles and key stakeholders. Talk to the users. Understand their point of view and role they play. Key to identifying issues not perceived at upper levels.
- Identify and document all the steps in relevant business processes.
- Identify gaps in processes and opportunities for improvements and automation
- Capture and document requirements for improvement
System design often accompanies or follows business process analysis. Our Systems Analysts work closely with our software developers to define the components, modules, interfaces and data for a system to satisfy requirements.
Software development follows system design and is the process of building the system based on the system design.
