Systems analysts are accountable for identifying, studying, and developing solutions to business problems. As a result, a systems analyst will collaborate with the stakeholders in the definition of systems requirements. Also, systems analysts are involved in managing the implementation of information systems that address business problems.

Consequently, this class’s final project focuses on delivering a system analysis of a business scenario (real or hypothetic) that can be addressed with the implementation of an information system. Hence, you will use the systems development life cycle (SDLC) as your project’s core methodology.
