POSITION SUMMARY

 

 

A Solutions Analyst provides solutions to configure, integrate, deliver, develop, and maintain software systems. It’s a highly technical position that demands insight into the realm of software developers and Infrastructure Engineers as well as a broad understanding of the challenges faced by Business and Technology Analysts. As a Solutions Analyst, you usually work as part of a cross functional team to provide support for both the business-facing analysts and infrastructure engineers. You spend most of your time working in front of a computer, troubleshooting problems, and developing solutions. You must be able to think on your feet and have advanced knowledge of hardware and software limitations and specifications to succeed in this position. The role of a Solutions Analyst calls for someone who has relevant hard and soft skills to overcome the traditional barriers between line-of-business subject matter experts and IT operations teams to foster a collaborative, integrated application environment. 

 

Where a Technology Analyst is expected to have deep expertise in a focused domain or even a single technology and a Business Analyst will have similarly focused expertise in a certain aspect of our business process, a Solutions Analyst is expected to be something of a technology agnostic expert in the broader domain of computer information systems. Strong foundations in software development or commonly used foundational technologies like Windows, Linux, relational databases systems, APIs and other data exchange protocols is highly prized in a Solutions Analyst.
