The emerging technologies such as internet of things (IoT's), Digital Twin, Robotics and Drones intermix with both information technology (IT) and operation technology (OT) and the hardware devices are not limited to a computer with a screen as they come in different shapes and forms with no user interface. The Swarm Intelligence technology even takes it further to enable devices to communicate with each other bypassing human intervention.

This has made it harder for Business Analysts to visualise how the requirements are turned to solutions. User Acceptance Testing (UAT) tests the 'responses' of the devices rather than visualising the change of behaviour of the application on screen. Modern Business Analysts need to have the acumen to support the emerging technologies by improving their knowledge in:

. User Persona, Empathy Map, User Journey Map, User Survey

. Software modelling technique ( BPMN, UML, SysML)

. Integration (requirements around integration between the existing and new systems including functional, infrastructure and data integration)

Regulations (around data privacy, device usage to minimise any missteps)

. Cyber Security (new and immature technologies are vulnerable to cyber-attacks. New technologies attract Cyber Espionage)

. Testing - (emerging technologies have not been trialled and tested as much as their predecessors, more testing needs to be done to check for errors and bugs to ensure the solutions have met the business requirements

Initially the Internet revolutionised the ability for individuals to talk “one to many”. Second generation, social media e-businesses, allow “many to many” communications. The third generation, Internet of Things, as the name suggests, allows objects to talk to one another.

There are already billions of Internet of Things devices. However, the Internet of Things is not just about “big ticket” items such as smart meters, connected vehicles and Samsung fridges. As costs come down, it will also provide an ultra-cheap means of connecting almost all everyday objects such as clothing, luggage, handbags, wallets and other accoutrements. How will businesses maximise the use of the “big data” that this Internet of Things will generate? What are the risks for consumers? And how secure, or rather insecure, will these connected objects be? What is the attitude of regulators to the Internet of Things?
