Computer systems analysts take a look at a company’s current computer systems and procedures, and then find a way to have them operate in a more efficient and effective way.
The role of a computer systems analyst is to act like a digital investigator. They document technology systems in order to understand, change, improve, and help rebuild these systems.
This might include finding out why a computer system is failing by using specific software to track applications, systems, databases, and networks.
- Analyzing data processing problems to improve computer systems
- Expand or modify the system to serve new purposes or improve workflow.
- Enhancing system compatibility to simplify the sharing of information
- Calculating memory and speed requirements for a computer system
- Assess the usefulness of pre-developed application packages and adapt them to a user environment.
- Specify inputs accessed by the system and plan the distribution and use of the results
