The field of business analysis concerns itself with defining business needs, recommending solutions, and evaluating the value of these solutions for customers. Straightforward as they may seem, stakeholders routinely challenge business analysis, frequently delay communication, and continually change to the articulated business need. This shifting environment impacts the products or solutions being developed.

Consequently, four major challenges emerge:

  • the level of engagement from stakeholders in identifying the business needs,
  • the team’s contributions in performing gap analysis for non-commercial requirements,
  • the type of defects identified and the types of testing done that require the business analyst to support the team, and
  • The risks that need to be considered in properly designing the solutions.

In this discussion, we will highlight how Inflectra’s SpiraPlan solves these four challenges for business analysts’.



  • Types of collaboration and auditability for requirement definition from stakeholders

  • Bi-directional traceability of requirements to test cases

  • Types of requirement definition as well as exploratory testing and defect density

  • Integrated Risk Management functionality to explore planning and development.
