Application Systems Analyst? 


New to the site and think all the information here is great. I currently perform another job function but do some analyst duties and am interested in changing jobs and focusing more in this area. I came across a job titled "Application Systems Analyst" but there seems to be very little information about this specific job title. Where does this role/title fit in with the other various "analyst" roles? I can make an educated guess but wondered what folks here thought about it.

I found an image on this site that showed the various analyst roles and how they overlap, where do you think this role would find itself? (

Putting that aside, I would say that the "Application Systems Analyst" is a mix of IT Business Analyst and Systems Analysts.  It is probably what most folks refer to as a "Business Systems Analyst".  Take a look at this page for a description around the image you mentioned:
