IT Software Solutions for Business

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 great demand in several areas, one of which is providing software solutions for business.

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.

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.

•               Produce detailed specifications

•               Develop software system for the required solution and test the software solution thoroughly

•               Prepare user training materials, train users, and present software solution to users

•               Install, implement and maintain the software system
