As I previously mentioned, the changing role of IS analysts is subject to certain forces, one being globalisation! Please take a look at how this affects their work.
Globalisation is changing how the world works! Multinational corporations face the challenge of developing global information systems for global data processing and decision-making. The Internet provides a broad area of services that business and individual users can easily access. Therefore, their needs and wants are constantly changing, altering the role of IS analysts. Because the World Wide Web can reach any Internet-connected computer in the world, the Internet is closely related to global information systems.
Across the globe, information systems create beneficial characteristics of products and services such as quality, safety, reliability and efficiency at an economical cost. The internet also allows businesses to understand what the international market demands, and adapt their businesses accordingly. As a client’s requirements change, so does the role of the IS analyst. This then calls for the IS analyst to constantly update their skills and adapt to the changing industry.
