  • Cyrus Wanjohi Kenya When performing an analysis of the current system, the views of the users of the system are paramount in successfully recognising the strengths and identifying weaknesses present. The first task of the analyst will be to identify who they need to consult to find out about the current system. In doing this, they will need to identify the following users of the system: those who provide data, those who input data, those manipulate the data and those who receive data. As well as these groups, they will need to identify the group above this - those who own or run the organisation - for they will also have ideas as to what the system is doing, what it can be doing or what it should be doing. Although you would imagine the discussion with the users of the system would uncover this information, it is surprising just how often management's idea of what is happening is different to that of the users of the system.

  • Nothando Gumpo United Kingdom In order to perform an analysis of a system, the first step must be to identify the sources of information that will provide views on the running of the current system. This will involve the users of the information the system produces, users of the actual system and people who support the system. Each of the groups will provide information that contributes to the construction of an overall picture of the running of the system. In each of the broad groups identified above, there will be different categories or subgroups within it. It is important that input is received from all of these parties so that a well-balanced overall view of the system can be developed.
