The function of a system analyst varies from industry to industry but the concept of the role does not change. A system analyst analyses systems both before and after any changes may occur with them.

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 be on board with the system changes before these are due to be done. It is their responsibility to ensure that the system will not cause and problems and also look into the solutions of any problems that they foresee happening when the system is implemented. These could be problems with the different kinds of data that is input and the compatibility of different programs or any usability issues that may occur once the system is in place.

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.

Systems analysts certainly aren’t limited to working just on software development projects. Yet, for some systems analysts, this is all they work on. At every stage of the systems development life cycle (SDLC), they team up with programmers, UX designers, QA testers, and so forth, to build systems.

The SDLC is just one of many software development methodologies, and its numerous benefits are compounded by its drawbacks. However, most people who work on dev projects understand it. When reading this article, consider keeping in mind the following standard SDLC phases:

  • Analysis
  • Design
  • Development
  • Testing
  • Installation/Deployment
  • Maintenance
