It was pointed out to me today that in addition to the 5 0ther business analyst types I had identified there is a 6th one.

This 6th business analyst type is someone whose focus is in support of a specific piece of software.

6 – Application Support Business Analyst

This role is finely tuned to the support of one or more software applications used by their business or IT partners. Examples of this would be like SAP modules, PeopleSoft, Oracle Financials, Salesforce. They are somewhat of a cross between a user and a product owner because of the in depth knowledge they have around the applications they support.

In you can think of any other types of Business Analysts be sure to let me know.
