Its all about system analysts!

18 Feb

Hey Guys 😀
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:

      • Planning
      • Designing
      • 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

Are system analysts important anymore?

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.

I hope you all enjoyed my blog, below is just a short clip about a system analyst and a helpful page to explain more about system analysts it is also where i got some of my information for this blog.

Enjoy 😀

    Nice job, really enjoyed reading the blog, very insightful. The systems analyst really is a vital person to have in building an IS. I liked how you said at the start that the systems analyst are really there to marry the system with the businesses own individual needs and how the systems analyst can give the organization the maximum possible worthwhile use from the system. I really liked how you showed how long it took to calculate wages before the system was built and how long it took after it was built. This really illustrates the power of a system and how businesses must use it in order to gain competitive advantage in the modern day business environment. I wonder what the future holds for systems analyst and how their role will change with further advances in technology and how much more they can get out of systems for organizations.

    Thank you so very much for all the comments.:D i hope you will all enjoy my next blog 😀 To sad112712305 thank you for the question 😀
    Well basically system analysts start off by asking people what kind of system they want for their business. they might do this by doing an interview to try and get a good idea of what would be the best system.The system analyst then reviews what the business wants and see if it is feasible or not, and to find out, they do an analysis of the project. To analyse the project, the system analyst must find out where are they going to get the infomation for the system. they will then design the system, which is to make a ‘skeleton’ of the project. the system analysts will then write specifications for the programmers of the report and development control. Basically the system analyst plans out what the system is going to do for their customers and see if it will help them, they then design a system that might help them to achieve their goals. As they say if you fail to plan, you plan to fail 😀 I hope this helps 😀
