The Calypso team in Investec is the sole team responsible for the Calypso application. Therefore the team covers many roles and responsibilities, namely; production support and training, BAU small change, project implementation as well as being the business analyst SME point of contact for our business stakeholders.
The Business Analyst role requires being involved in initiatives throughout the lifecycle, starting at inception through to implementation, testing and operationalisation. The business analyst will be responsible for gaining a deep understanding of the problem and solving it through analysis and simple scalable design that will seamlessly fit in with the rest of Calypso. It should also be in line with the various interfaces and technical architecture.
The Back Office BA will be responsible for implementing back office projects, improving back office automation, making BAU small changes and supporting incidents in this area. The support work will involve understanding the issues and putting in solutions that will resolve the underlying issue in order to keep support to an absolute minimum. For all of this there will be design work, configuration and testing work.
In order to deliver successfully, there is a need to interact with multiple stakeholders within the bank. The Back Office BA will need to work closely with the business, the rest of the Calypso team and other technical teams in the bank.
This list is indicative and is not intended to be exhaustive. The business analyst's responsibilities are therefore not limited to the below but can include:
