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 Sheffield

Sheffield is also known as the Steel City to the entire world. In its prime during the 1900’s it was known for its industry. Today, however, this very same industrial city boasts of lush green parks. The city presents the localities and visitors with cultural scenes that include theatres, festivals, street arts, music and much more. Deriving its name from the River Sheaf, the city is located in South Yorkshire, England.

Transport

Road

Sheffield links to the national highway through the M1 and M18 motorways. The city centre is connected with the motorways by the Sheffield Parkway.

Rail

The following are the routes that pass through Sheffield:

  • The Midland Main Line
  • The Cross Country Route
  • Routes that link the cities of Liverpool and Manchester with East Anglia and East Anglia.

Sheffield now has a direct connection to mainland Europe with the St Pancras International completed. There are trains from France and Belgium that connect to Sheffield railway station. The express train known as the Master Cutler connects Sheffield to the capital city.

 In 2010 the ruling government announced in October 2010 that Sheffield and Leeds would be served by the same line, which will also connect to Manchester, due to the proposed High-Speed Rail network. Another line proposed to begin by 2025, the Yorkshire/East Midlands High-Speed line, will be in service by 2032.

Other trains that serve Sheffield are provided by TransPennine Express, Northern and CrossCountry. The city has five other railway stations. Meadowhall, the second largest station in Sheffield serves as a bus, rail and tram interchange. Other commuter stations include services from Dore and Totley, Woodhouse, Chapeltown and Darnall.

Coach

The National Express and the Megabus are two services that operate the coach services in Sheffield. National Express serves the interchanges at Sheffield, Meadowhall and Meadowhead Bus Stop. Megabus only serves Meadowhall. Sheffield is connected by the National Express route 560/564 to London Victoria Coach Station through Chesterfield and Milton Keynes directly. It operates on the route 12 times a day bi-directionally. The two services that connect Sheffield to Manchester and Heathrow/Gatwick Airports respectively are 350 and 240.The M12 and M20, which are services provided by Megabus, call at Sheffield on the way to London from Newcastle upon Tyne and Inverness respectively.

Canal

These waterways connect Doncaster, Sheffield,    and Rotherham with the River Trent at Keadby and the Aire and Calder Navigation.

The Sheffield City Airport in 2008 had to be shut down. The entire traffic from Sheffield was as thus to the Doncaster Sheffield Airport which is at a distance of 29 km from the city centre. The airport used to be the site of former RAF Finningley base. The airport opened to the public on 28 April 2005. In a year the airport is capable of handling a million passengers.
