Thanks, Lauren. :)

You are, as always, a font of information -- and I mean that as a fountain, not as like Helvetica! :) (Although I always thought Mistral was a nice font, if you had to be associated with one. :)

Appreciate it.

Steve

Business Systems Analyst is separate from Business Analyst. Job
descriptions are a bit illusory these days and seem to be more "in the
general area of," rather than "specifically this," so there is not
likely a concrete answer. As I understand the two disciplines, a BSA is
specific to systems and technology of the business while a BA can have a
range of applications in different areas of the business that include
administration, procedures, processes, how a business uses technology,
and how employees interact with technology. Essentially, from my
perspective, a BSA analyzes the business systems internally, as in how
the system works, while a BA, when analyzing systems, analyzes the
business systems externally, as in how the business uses the system.

Not to muddy the waters, but there is also a niche BA, called a Business
Process Analyst, or BPA, that falls within the business analysis
spectrum of disciplines.

I have mentioned Business Process Reengineer, or BPR, which is a more
specialized form of analyst.
