Business Analysis in a DevOps world

Agile development has already challenged BAs to work in new ways and change their ideas about their own jobs.  DevOps is continuing and accelerating this challenge.  Writing documents is fading in its importance, but researching, meeting and talking with people, and analysis and critical thinking are only becoming bigger parts of the job.  As broad collaboration across all of IT (and extending into our customer organizations) becomes the rule, a BA's skill set grows in value.  But how we use those skills, and what our jobs will morph into is an open question that is ripe to explore.
