Analyst Role and Interview Questions

A 'bridge' is the best possible analogy that can describe the role of an analyst in an organisation. In the most generic terms an analyst analyses the possibilities, prospects, methodologies, implementations, viabilities etc. that a business would ever confront. An analyst has to collect information on 'what' a particular client wants, and he must then know 'how' to achieve it by translating it into the actual business logic, thus he needs to know the means by which the goal can be achieved. However, an analyst is never a part of the manufacturing or development process itself, although he must have good knowledge of the same!

For example The role of a system analysts in an information technology environment would include steps such as a 'feasibility study' at the beginning, that aims at analysis of whether or not a particular project is viable given the current economical, social, technological and organizational scenario. The next step is that of fact finding techniques which aims at knowing more about the end user's expectations. The last step would be to actually find out if the product has lived up to the expectations of the end users.
