According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, job growth for computer systems analysts is projected at 9 percent for the decade ending in 2026, slightly better than the 7 percent growth projected for all occupations. Projected growth is attributed to continued reliance on computer systems and cloud systems, leading firms to either hire in-house computer systems analysts or to contract with providers. Either way, opportunities should be available for computer systems analysts.
Some computer systems analysts work directly for firms with large or complex networks that require full-time IT staff to be on site. Others work independently or for consulting firms that provide computer systems analysis for clients on an as-needed basis. This means work generally is done in an office setting, whether it is a single office or multiple offices serving multiple clients.
