Systems Administrator Jobs

Systems Administrators are responsible for creating IT solutions for private, government and public sector organisations. They aim to improve business efficiency and productivity and get heavily involved in monitoring systems admin software solutions for effective product roadmapping, log management and web design. 

Breaking down Systems Administrator jobs into three main areas, they will be dealing with investigating and analysing the initial problem or requirements from a business perspective, designing a suitable system and implementing and testing the new system.

Systems administrators will work closely with programmers, designers and commercial staff such as the Business Analyst, and discuss IT problems and requirements. The systems administrator jobs also deal with interpreting the project and the client's requirements to create detailed project plans.

They also deal with looking at the options for possible solutions and assessing their merits on a business and technical basis - for example, deciding whether a new system is cost effective and compatible with existing systems.

Systems administrators liaise with staff to ensure the project deadline will be met and deal with testing the system and identifying any bugs or glitches. A hugely valuable role within business environments, the job entails providing staff training on the new system and manuals for users.
