    Topic: The AI-Powered Business Analyst: Five Ways to Work Smarter in the Age of Automation

    Business analysts play a crucial role in eliciting requirements, analyzing needs, and ensuring solutions deliver value. But increasing complexity and demands on Business Analysts can lead to inefficiency, inconsistent artifacts, strained stakeholder relationships, and underwhelming results. Many aspects of the job are just time-consuming and tedious.

    Fortunately, advances in AI (Artificial Intelligence) are transforming how Business Analysts can approach their role for enhanced productivity and business value.

    In this practical session, we explore five ways AI can make you a better BA:

        • Producing artifacts quickly so you can focus on ideas
        • Accelerating research
        • Interviewing stakeholders
        • Rapidly generating prototypes and mockups for design
        • Maintaining consistency and traceability

    You'll learn AI techniques and tools available today to help you work smarter, gain deeper insights, and deliver better analysis. By leveraging AI for repetitive and labor-intensive tasks, you can focus your time on high-value strategic analysis, gain deeper insights, be more productive, and provide greater business value.

    We'll discuss real-world applications and provide tips to make AI work for you. If you're a business analyst looking to enhance your skills and contribution in the age of AI, don't miss this session!

    Presented by: Marc Balcer, Instructor and Consultant, SoftEd USA

    Marc Balcer has spent his entire career in information technology and software development. A published expert in software testing and the creator of TAME – a model-driven platform for specifying and generating software tests. A co-author of two books, Executable UML: A Foundation for Model-Driven Architecture and Applied SOA: Service-Oriented Architecture and Design Strategies. In many professions, technologies and practices continually change. That’s why the agile philosophy is fundamentally about experimentation, curiosity, learning, and a willingness to try new things. So, to be an effective instructor, consultant, and course developer, I like to be continually hands-on, putting theory into practice.
