IT Software Solutions for Business

Creating new systems and modifying existing ones to provide software solutions to large and small businesses.

Why is this skill important?

The rapid pace of globalization over the past decade has been largely driven by developments in Information and Communication Technology (ICT). IT specialists are increasingly in demand in several areas, one of which is providing software solutions for businesses.

The development of software solutions to improve business productivity encompasses many different skills and disciplines. Key to these is an awareness of the fast-changing nature of the industry and the ability to keep up with the rapid pace of change.

IT software solution professionals always work closely with clients to modify existing systems or create new systems. They may modify “off the shelf” software and integrate it into the existing systems. They often work as part of a team of software professionals responsible for the requirement specification, system analysis and design, construction, testing, training, and implementation, as well as maintenance of a business software system.

The tasks performed by IT software solution professionals include but are not limited to the following:

  • Review current system and present ideas for improvement, including cost benefit analysis
  • Analyse and specify user requirements
  • Produce detailed specifications for new systems or for modifications to existing systems
  • Develop software systems and test the software solution thoroughly
  • Prepare user training materials, train users, and present the software solution to users
  • Install, implement, and maintain the software system

IT software solutions professionals can be employed in large, medium, and small enterprises as software engineers, in consulting firms as consultants, and in software houses as contractors.

They can operate in a wide variety of roles including in a development role to tailor-make or customize software solutions, in a supporting role to operate systems, in a business analyst role to provide solutions to simplify and automate routine office and business activities, as well as in a training role to train users in using the application software.
