Hey guys, so I realize that many of you don’t actually know what I do, just that I’m a corporate girl so I decided to write this post to let you in on what I actually do.
For those who don’t know, I got my degree from University of Pretoria in BCom(Informatics) in 2014 and completed my honors degree in Informatics last year- 2015. I’m currently working at a bank as a business analyst.
The google definition of that is:
“A business analyst is someone who analyzes an organization or business domain (real or hypothetical) and documents its business or processes or systems, assessing the business model or its integration with technology.”
And that’s basically the gist of it. I look at a business domain and analyze the business processes (usually technological) in order to figure out ways to improve these processes so that the business can be more efficient in that area.
Why did I go into this?
Well from high school I never really knew exactly what I wanted to do but I knew I was interested in technology but at the same time wanted to be involved in the business of a business (lol). Informatics got my hands dirty in the tech world as a programmer while I also got to do subjects like business studies, accounting and the like and being a business analyst allows me to do both as a living.
So that’s me, maybe not so exciting for some but I love it. 🙂
I hope that gives you a little insight into my world.
