Business Analysts (BA) act as the bridge between the business and IT departments,
by smoothing the way as corporate policy moves from definition to execution inside a software application. Business
Analysts must translate policy into a formal specification acceptable to developers, and must validate the formal
specification with policy managers who may not understand the language of the specification.
Depending on their level of technical knowledge, Business Analysts may perform tasks that are described as developer
tasks. However, generally business analysts do not write code. In a BRMS a
BA also represents a type of user profile who is responsible for modeling business rule application projects.
