Systems Analysis and Design Tutorial
Systems Analysis is the study of complex computer systems. It examines application systems from both functional and technical perspectives.
Functional analysis focuses on the functional capabilities of an application system and determines if the system meets the current needs of the business.
Technical analysis evaluates the system from an architectural perspective and examines its operational stability, performance, maintainability and operating costs.
The systems analyst is responsible for performing the systems analysis. An analysis project is normally undertaken when an organization is thinking about enhancing, replacing or re-architecting an application system.
The systems assessment is performed based on documented business requirements that result from business analysis.
