Software analysts are responsible for all aspects of software development projects. They work with customers to develop an understanding of their needs and the specifications the project will require. After careful planning and research, they work with other software developers to produce code and a system to meet those specifications. They help test the software to ensure it fully meets their customers’ needs. Once the completed project is delivered, software analysts work with the customer to install and learn to effectively use the program. If any issues arise, they are responsible for rewriting code and providing updates to the users. They also work with customers to maintain existing software as needed throughout its lifetime.
