An important discussion taking place on the IIBA Central Florida's Linked in forum:
I’m often asked about the difference between business analyst and systems analyst roles. In reviewing job profiles, the roles can seem very similar. In this quick video, I describe how both roles are defined so you can decide what career path you want to pursue. For those who like to read instead of watch, here’s […] The post What is the Difference Between a Business Analyst and a Systems Analyst? first appeared on Bridging the Gap.
I'm very excited about this month's meeting. We have members of management from organizations around Orlando coming to discuss what they look for in the role of the BA and out of the individual BA. Please join us next Tuesday, May 21, 2013.

Business analysis is all about requirements. But specifying what a solution does has little value if we don't know how well it is supposed to do it. This is where non-functional requirements -- also called quality requirements, constraints, or non-behavioral requirements -- can make a difference.
NFRs are often neglected, misunderstood, or ignored. Even when they are given the attention they deserve, many professionals struggle to document and define them. Join Keith Nolen as he discusses how to create good NFRs, and how they are key to driving the value of any solution and making your project a success!
