When it comes to business intelligent automation, they are in the best position to identify automation opportunities in the business processes and to accelerate the implementation by documenting the "as is" state, formulating the requirements for the automation solution, as well as testing the actual implementation.

From this perspective, the RPA Business Analyst can be an intermediate stage on the path to becoming an Automation Business Analyst.
  • As a Senior Automation Business Analyst (4-7 years of experience), you will be involved in more strategic and technically complex projects.
  • As a Principal Automation Business Analyst (7+ years of experience), you can expect to be more and more involved in choosing and designing automation solutions.
