Description: Computer systems analysts combine management analysis skills with IT analysis skills. They evaluate the technology needs of an organization based on its size, function and business goals.

They then compile recommendations, describe options for new system components or software, and train or hire personnel. These recommendations will take into account an organization’s budget as well as its strategic goals.

Computer systems analysts may work as independent consultants as well as for organizations.
