One of the most consistently in demand roles in the information technology field over the past several years has been that of the IT Business Analyst. As companies increasingly meld technology into nearly every aspect of business, company management has grown to understand and experience the value that skilled IT Business Analysts can bring to their organization. These individuals straddle the line between the technology side of organizations and the business units helping to ensure that common goals are met in an efficient and effective manner. But as with most functions, with the changing economic landscape, this role is undergoing a metamorphosis.
