Future of Systems Analysis
Systems Analysis as discussed in our class portrays significant roles in our
society. To fully understand the importance of systems analysis, let us first define what
systems analysis is. Basically systems analysis from its name itself is about analyzing a
system(Copley). It is the process of utilizing information to find out what the system
needs in order to efficiently meet the needs of its users. Systems analysis follows an
overall process in order to meet the needs of the users(Systems Analysis). This process
starts from research where the analyst collects information about the existing system,
followed by the analysis wherein examination of the present system works and
identification of problem happens. The design where coming up with a new and
innovative idea that can fix the existing system is followed by the production of the
design. After the design is produced, it is tested, documented, implemented and finally
evaluated. Examples of systems that undergo this process are systems used in
organizations or businesses such as the systems of communication, financial systems,
manufacturing systems and many more.
Different fields of businesses and companies make use of systems analysis.
Systems analysts are like the magical tool of these businesses and companies who
finds out the problems in their systems and providing them innovative ideas on how to
solve their problems. These innovative ideas are influenced by the evolving technology
in our society today. Personally, I think systems analysis will improve even more and
will come up of even more creative ideas on how to meet the needs of the users of
these businesses and companies. I think that in the near future, systems analysts will
come up with solutions that are very convenient that might even replace the human
workforce. In order for a business to be globally competitive they will have to
continuously update their existing system especially today that technology developing
rapidly. This rapid development of technology is brought about by the continuous
improvements made by the systems analysis.
So what’s in store for systems analysis in the future? I foresee systems analysis
being even more in demand in the future knowing how important it is to all kinds of
businesses. Systems analysis would continue to improve as technology develops for
their improvements somehow depend on each other. Systems analysis will exist even if
technology stops improving but technology cannot exist without systems analysis
because through it problems are found and solutions to these problems are made.
Hence, following the direction of the existing systems analysis we have today it is easy
to see that it is going the upward direction. Take for example the products develop by
Apple, in the past years gadgets which were touch screen can only be seen in futuristic
movies, now it is made available to almost everyone. This technology would not be
made possible if Apple stuck with the system it used when the company was first
established, Apple may have even closed a long time ago if their systems were not
developed. Apple will continue to improve its systems to stay at the top of their game
and to continue to be globally competitive. Bottom line is that in whatever perspective
you look at systems analysis will never be taken out of the picture. It will continuously
look for a way to make existing systems improve making things as convenient and
efficient as possible to all of its users.
