I'm migrating this question from SQA.
Why do expressions like business analyst, business intelligence, business rules, etc. using the word "business"?
I guess that is because usually software is ordered by a customer coming from a certain industry and for them it makes sense. But to me, the word "business" evokes ideas of accounting, sales, trading and similar.
Maybe it is a dumb question. If so, please close it. I'm not a native English speaker and "business" just seems muddy sometimes.
