A system analyst is used by a company for many different reasons. Some of these will be on a regular basis to check that the systems that are running are at the scale and speed that they should be and other uses of a system analyst will be when there is a system change over or a new system is implemented.
Some of these systems in big companies can include:
- Ordering systems
- Payroll systems
- Reporting systems
The system analyst will also make sure that the system is ready to go live and perform any testing to the system in a development area before the system is ready to use.
A system analyst is required to make sure that any system changeover is completed as smoothly as possible.
