TORONTO, March 26, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA) has begun a phased launch of a new chapter digital platform to enable greater value for members and seamless engagement with their local professional networks.

With 30,000 members and 120 chapters worldwide, IIBA leads the global business analysis community and professional standards, shaping the practice of business analysis to achieve better enterprise outcomes.

Work on migrating IIBA chapters to the new platform began in February and will be completed in November 2024.
