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. Computer systems analysts can work with an organization’s non-technical employees and its IT team to identify gaps in technology solutions and find opportunities to optimize the organization’s current IT infrastructure.

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. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the top five industries employing computer systems analysts in 2020 included computer systems design, finance and insurance, management, information, and government.
