Over the past 15 years or so, India has emerged as a ‘Software Capital of
the World’. This has resulted in great demand for the business analysts in
India. Today, India has about 1.2 million (12 Lakh) business analysts and
they are mainly distributed across few cities as indicated in the graph. To
be precise about 90% of the business analysts are in 12 cities
(Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chandigarh, Chennai, Delhi, Gurgaon,
Hyderabad, Jaipur, Kolkatta, Mumbai, Noida and Pune). So what it says.
To become a business analyst or to grow as a business analyst one should
be in one of these 12 cities within India. I mean they have greater
chances of getting opportunities.
Though information technology is the industry that can be credited for the
creation and moulding of business analysis domain, off late other
industries followed suit to take advantage of the contribution of the
business analysts to deliver successful projects. Industries such as
Entertainment, Health Care, Hospitality, Public Sector, Retail, Telecom
and Travel are having handful of business analysts and there is a great
demand in these industries.
There are two types of business analysts. One is called as the technical
business analyst and the other is called as the domain business analyst.
Among the two the latter, the domain business analyst is growing as the
most preferred career. Typically the technical business analyst started as
developer or tester in a technical or an application domain. Over the
years, company has appreciated their analytical, interpersonal and
communication skills and promoted them as a technical business analyst.
On the other hand the domain business analyst may have only a decent
technical knowledge, but will have tremendous business knowledge. The
growing preference towards the domain business analyst is that technical
knowledge is in abundance. IT companies have no dearth of technical
knowledge, but there is a severe shortage of business knowledge.
Until 2011, there was no demand for business analysis certifications
either from the clients or from the companies. But during the past 4
years, there is a growing trend among companies to ask for certified
business analysts. Many companies started setting up their Business
Analysis Centre of Excellence (BACoE). To head these centres of
excellence these companies need a business analysis framework, hence
the demand for the certifications. On the other hand, when certifications
are demanded by the client they want to ensure some level of expertise
on the side of vendor companies while performing business analysis.
Today the worlds three most popular business analysis certifications are
CPRE, PMI-PBA® and CBAP®.
