Turns out they might not be quite as boring as I thought they were. They are the people who guide a company through the development of an information system. They are responsible for matching the information system objectives with the goals of the firm but what I found interesting was the analyst can also required to perform as a programmer, where he or she actually writes the code to implement the design of the proposed application. Not only that but if they get paid up to $90,000 a year in the likes of PricewaterhouseCoopers.
But what does it take to become a Systems Anaysts?
He or she has to be multifaceted person with a wide variety of skills. In addition to the technical know-how of the information system development a system analyst should also have business knowledge, interpersonal skills and problem solving skills. So a BComm student could do this.
