Jared Gorai
Chapter and Membership Engagement
IIBA Director
Crossing the Chasm to the New Digital World
Digital is the future of business, and by extension the future of business analysis. It will alter the way in which corporations and businesses function and will blur the lines between the traditional business roles. In this presentation, Jared will explain how digital is an approach rather than a technology while explaining what it means to the future of the profession. He’ll demonstrate how practitioners need to augment their skills and specialize in specific technologies to remain relevant in the digital age. The convergence of technology, customer experience and domain knowledge puts the business analysis professional on their way across the chasm and into the digital world.

Jared loves being a Business Analyst and has done so in title for over 15 years with over 25 years of business and leadership experience in both the retail and energy sectors. He is a strong advocate for IIBA, having served in various capacities with the Calgary IIBA Chapter as well as chairing the Volunteer Chapter Network. He brings his passion for business analysis and experience as a Chapter Leader to the role of Director of Chapter and Membership Engagement of IIBA. He holds his Bachelor of Arts degree in French from the University of Calgary and the Certified Business Analysis Professional™ (CBAP®) designation. He will take any chance possible to evangelize business analysis and will talk your ear off about the role and the profession should you allow him to do so.
