Computer Systems Analyst
By Steven Prout
Duties and Responsibilities
Analytical skills. Analysts must interpret complex information from various sources and be able to decide the best way to move forward on a project. They must also be able to predict how changes may affect the project.
Communication skills. Analysts work as a go-between with management and the IT department and must be able to explain complex issues in a way that both will understand.
Creativity. Because analysts are tasked with finding innovative solutions to computer problems, an ability to “think outside the box” is important.
Teamwork. The projects that computer systems analysts work on usually require them to collaborate and coordinate with others.
