About ITSSB Skill - IT Software Solution 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.       

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 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
  • 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

IT software solutions professionals can be employed in large, medium and small enterprises as software engineer, in consulting firms as consultant, and in software houses as contractor. They can operate in a wide variety of roles including development role to tailor-make or customize software solutions, supporting role to operate system, business analyst role to provide solution to simplify and automate routine office and business activities, as well as training role to train user in using the application software.

About Website Design and Development Skill 

Web Design encompasses many different skills and disciplines in the production and maintenance of websites. The diversity of the skills required by a web developer are many, often to the point it is difficult for a web designer to excel in all aspects. As a result, a team may cover the Web Design process, with each member of the team having their own strengths, specialties and role in the development process. Web Design involves implementing specific solutions that follow the business rules and objectives outlined by the client. Web Designers develop a professional relationship with their clients, interacting with them in order to develop a deep understanding of the requirements and convert these into a website specification. Strong design and communication skills, coupled with research techniques and a grasp of target audiences, markets and trends, will ensure initial client satisfaction and credibility for the Web Designer. Having completed the website planning and design, the Web Designer then integrates the website with third party tools and platforms. During the development process web designers design and develop the databases, create programs, tests and debug the website.

The current trend is to also integrate the website with Social Media and take advantage of the leverage these modern platforms bring. All these skills may apply equally to the re-design or an upgrade of an existing website. A Web Designer has many employment opportunities. This can range from being a self-employed freelancer to being employed by media organizations and advertising agencies. Web Designer positions may be broad in scope or specialize in an area such as Graphic Design, Client Management, Front End Development, Back End/Server Side Development and User End Designer. Whichever role a web designer chooses to specialize in they will need to have access to ICT facilities, open source libraries and frameworks. High performing Web Designers may have broad or specialist web-related skills. However, to excel they must have a strong grasp of copyright law and a well-developed personal code of ethics. They must understand artistic values, and take personal responsibility for being constantly at the forefront of trends and web technology. They must also be responsive to clients and have the ability to work in structured and unstructured teams and groups. These qualities enable the Web Designer to contribute and take advantage of this rapidly developing aspect of modern communications technology
