I remember when I first started my software testing career, BAs (Business Analysts) were something frequently discussed.
I was in a small startup at the time so the thought of having a dedicated BA was a distant dream. A lot of what I was doing I was told should be the job of the BA but in startup life, you can tend to cover many roles
More recently I’ve noticed the lack of discussion around BAs. It’s just not something I see popping up in discussions or blog posts anymore.
It got me thinking, has the role of tester and BA combined? Are there still dedicated BAs out there?
