What Does A Business Analyst Do?

So you’re wondering what exactly does a business analyst do?

The short answer is: depends.

‘On what?’ you might ask.

And I would like to answer that by saying that it depends on a particular job, company and industry, although there are some general trends and activities that a business analyst does. For example, chances are you won’t find a business analyst coding at the job.

Let’s actually answer some of the questions you might have then.

What is a Business Analyst?

The overseeing Business Analysis organization, IIBA (International Institute of Business Analysis), defines the business analyst to be

Business Requirements & Functional Requirements

What’s The Difference And Why Should You Care?

Successful products usually do not have a clear-cut success formula, although you can control for some well-known industry elements, such as having good customer support, great UX, a reliable technological stack, etc.

Of these industry elements, two important factors that are easily confused between one another are the business requirements and the functional requirements, especially when the concept of ‘features’ comes into discussion.

For example, having a ‘location tracking’ feature for your app is not a business requirement.

The business requirement would be something like “provide a way for team leads to …

Assessing the Technical Feasibility Of An Idea

After long and arduous brainstorming sessions, you came up with a great idea for a product.

You even went a step ahead, and did the necessary steps in order to get your idea as validated as you can at this step.

This means that you did your market research, through surveys, interactions with people in the industry and even a small sketch to showcase your idea.

And then it hit you: but what if it can’t be built? And if it can, what if I don’t have the budget for it? 

Bashing yourself for being overly enthusiastic on the business …

Why You Focus On The Wrong Things

It seems only natural that we are our most confident when talking about subjects we know a thing or two about. 

As a programmer, you might find joy and passion to talk about the latest paradigm you’ve learned, or new GNU/Linux utilities, or a hack you managed to do to patch up a production-line halting bug.

If, on the other hand, you’re asked to provide your opinion on an ongoing issue that the marketing team is confronted with, then, it’s normal to feel jittery and to say that it’s out of your circle of competence.

And that’s to be expected. …

How Much Does It Cost To Build An App Like Uber

Austin Distel on unsplash

Short answer: roughly $120,000.

Long answer: depends on the features.

Uber is the most widely used ride hailing application across the world. 

Founded in 2009, it had over a decade worth of time to iterate over features and see which ones are worth keeping, chucking away or improving.

This article will show you how much it would cost to build it with (most of) the feature set that Uber already has.

But keep in mind that Uber iterated over time and the app was much more bare bones than it is now.

We’re going …

Why Most Apps Fail

Answer: Because at least half of the budget isn’t for marketing.

Wait what?

Marketing!?

But I’m building this awesome product, that will surely be enough for people to be noticed by itself.

I’m gonna maybe let people know on Hackernews and product management groups about this new product that uses blockchain technology, AI and embedded systems using Apache Kafka and [insert technology buzzword of the month]!

Surely I won’t be able to handle all the thousands of users and clients.

Right?

Well, It’s been 3 months now and instead of hearing any ka-ching!, all I’m hearing are crickets. Why?

Am …

How to Grow Your App. An Overlooked Perspective

Balázs Kétyi on unsplash

People who want to build apps are generally enamored with the feature set they thought of.

And that’s generally a good thing to be excited about, especially if they’ve done their research and their ideas are one of a kind.

But the thing is, users (i.e. your future customers) don’t want features. Well, not explicitly.

They want experiences that better their lives. 

And we believe that the best way to create experiences that better the lives of people is not to set up a feature factory, but to include marketing processes as early in the …
