Computer systems analysts may best be described as systems consultants who assist organizations to realise the maximum benefit from their investment in computer equipment and personnel. At all times systems analysts are accountable to clients in developing the best possible systems according to the requirements specified.
Systems analysts study clients’ systems requirements, write comprehensive programs and system specifications to meet these requirements, then finally consult with the users of the system to ensure higher production. They are also responsible for the detailed design of computer systems, which a programmer can convert into a computer language.
Their work follows a very logical step-by-step format. For any project undertaken these steps may include the following:
