“You have to be a good business analyst when working with a business problem. If you have good insight into the problem, able to identify it, then you can start by making a slide change in it, you know,  I mean small change in the business process without the need to involve in many solutions”.

“At end of the day, the business only cares about their problem is to be solved or not. They don’t really want to know how hard it is, how advanced technology you put into the solution. So I think that many of us have failed to face this kind of problem in our careers”.

“For the young people who are fascinated about emerging technology, the new technology, don’t be panicked when your solution doesn’t work out or when you receive a negative comment, believe me. Even I know that you have spent a lot of time on building a beautiful solution, yes. But, I would like to say: don’t forget to put business outcome at top priority”.
