Is Business Analyst similar to Systems Analyst?

I think of myself as an analyst programmer, and my cv is written along those lines. But my roles have always included systems analysis - and Wikipedia says that systems analyst is an alternative title for the business analyst role. What are appropriate phrases -or buzzwords- for a Business Analyst cv -that a systems analyst might use?
