One of the most important analytical skills you can develop is systems thinking, or the ability to see organizations and information systems as systems. Systems thinking provides a framework from which to see the important relationships among information systems, in the organizations where they exist, and in the environment where the organizations themselves exist. Technical skills help you understand the potential and the limitations of information technology. As an analyst, you must be able to envision an information system that will help users solve problems and that will guide the system’s design and development.

Systems development life cycle (SDLC) The series of steps used to mark the phases of development for an information system. Organizations use a standard set of steps, called a systems development methodology, to develop and support their information systems. Like many processes, the development of information systems often follows a life cycle. For example, a commercial product, such as a Nike sneaker or a Honda car, follows a life cycle: It is created, tested, and introduced to the market. Its sales increase, peak, and decline.
