So for this blog I will talk about what system analysts do, are they important and are they needed anymore. If you have any questions, please don’t be afraid to drop a comment, I would be more than willing to answer any questions you may have about the blog😀
Duties of a system analyst
Duties of a system analyst can vary depending on the organisation that they are working for.
Some duties of a system analyst include:
- Installing and developing new computer systems
- looking at old systems and trying to revamp them to do more/ different tasks
- Networking computers
- Testing computers and debugging systems
System analysts are more important now than ever before as people rely on computers systems to get jobs done faster and help businesses become more efficient and effective. System analysts are really important as businesses need new systems to target new customers, keep their existing customers information up to date and help businesses keep on top of their paperwork. Systems are invented to help businesses and people to get jobs done faster, so that they can pay more attention on other problems they may have.
System analysts make sure that systems are running smoothly and make sure that people know how to use the new system in the best possible way. In my last blog I talked about the first system analyst and how he discovered how to calculate wages for his employees; before the system it took 8 minutes to calculate the wages, now it only takes a few seconds and it is less likely for there to be a mistake made in the calculation. This was just the start of computer systems, but the wages system is still being used today, sure it may have been updated but that just shows us how important systems are and how important it is to have system analysts.
You all know that the internet has taken over the last few years. Nowadays everyone has a laptop/computer, technology is taking over and we all know that, this is why it is so important for companies to have a system analyst to help them solve problems faster, as people are becoming less patient as we are used to fast checking things out with a click of a button. For businesses to succeed they need to keep up to date and create new systems to help them do this and the only way to do this is by having a system analyst on their team. The picture below shows us that a lot of different positions depend on a system analyst to help the business.
