The IPD IT team needs a dedicated Business Analyst to solicit, collect, and document business requirements for IPD applications enhancements or projects, especially for the Trigent applications (CDMS, Spectrum, and the Coding Engine). We will be starting new work to review applications, servers, and databases that need to be either updated, consolidated, or eliminated. As we start this work to improve the group, a business analyst will be a crucial role to help us move from the idea-stage to the execution-stage.
