BCS Certificate in Business Analysis Practice

Growing with Business Analysis

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

It was in the year 2004 (barely 13 years ago) that the International Institute of Business Analysis was founded. It is a concept much older than that. The BCS or the British Computer Society which is now responsible for awarding Business Analysis certification to the delegates was established around 60 years ago in 1957 AD. It was only in the last 10 years or so that developments took place in the field of Business Analysis at a very rapid pace. Business Analysis lays emphasis on refining the present business situations and recognizing business solutions for the problems faced by the businesses.

ABOUT Portsmouth

Portsmouth,  situated on the Portsea Island,70-miles south-west of London, in Hampshire is home to 205,400 people. Portsmouth is said to have been existing during the Roman civilization too. Portsmouth for many centuries has served the Royal Navy as well. During the French invasion of 1545, Portsmouth is said to have served England as a line of defence. It is also known as the oldest dry dock of the world.

Portsmouth became the first to go into mass production. As such it also came to be known for being an industrialized city. The Portsmouth Blitz, during the Second World War, claimed 930 lives, as a result of bombing by the Nazi forces. The troops deployed to liberate the Falkland Islands in 1982 were from the Portsmouth’s naval base. When Hong Kong, the last British colony, was to be transferred, The Queen’s yacht Britannia left to Hongkong from Portsmouth.

Literature

‘Pompey’, a novel by Jonathan Meades, shows Portsmouth as the home of many criminals.Fanny Park, the lead character, in Jane Austen's novel Mansfield Park, is a resident of Portsmouth. Incidentally, many of Jane Austen’s made sure that her novels came to end in the Portsmouth city. In his novel, ‘The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby', Charles Dickens has portrayed Nicholas and Smike getting involved in a theatrical troupe in Portsmouth. The Aubrey-Martin series by Patrick O’Brian mostly saw Captain Jack Aubrey’s ships sailing from Portsmouth.

Many crime novels such D.I. Faraday/D.C. Winter novels by Graham Hurley and the Heartsone by C.J.Samson were set in Portsmouth.Published in 2014, the ‘Portsmouth Fairy Tales for Grown Ups’, had locations in its stories that were from around Portsmouth.
