BA Work From Home Program 

I am currently exploring the opportunity for Business Analyst to work from home 100% of the time. Part of our challenge surrounds collaboration tools that we can utilize during requirement sessions.  We currently have Webex, Instant Messenger, email and other basic applications (presentation).  I am looking for something the BA's can utilize via Web Ex to present and allow users to collaborate with them - such as an electronic white board.  Does anyone have input on the best collaboration tool to use?

Re: BA Work From Home Program 
I could work at home to write documentation ... but to get that stuff to write, I need to be at the clients place and talk to people, watch things so I can ask more questions, etc.







Maybe Its the old age now and I'm different than the new BA's or whatever, but I can't sit home 100% of the time for any project.

Depends what you mean by collaborate? Jira and Confluence are good.

Re: BA Work From Home Program 
For brainstorming collaboration (earlier stages) you could check out coggle.it.  Its a free website and you can share it with other users.  They must have a google account to be able to access shared diagrams and edit.  All users can make concurrent changes and see updates in real time.  Without a google account, you only have the option to download a pdf of your diagram and share the pdf - not so helpful.  This tool could be used for mind maps, functional decomposition, and other general brainstorming.

My current, favourite question for Executives and Architects is “How do you see Architecture operating in an Agile environment.” This question usually elicits a wry smile and a response along the lines of “I will need to get back to you on that!” Many people are wondering how Architecture will fair in the world of Agile.

The age of cloud computing is now so firmly established that research firm Gartner predicted by 2020, a corporate "no-cloud" policy will be as rare as a "no-internet" policy is today. In the same press release, Gartner went on to predict that spending on compute power sold by cloud providers will exceed that of compute power sold and deployed into ...
