the new SOL is causing a confusion for IT proffessionals?

hi!

it seems many IT proffessional have issues about how their asco code fits into the new SOL - ICT business analyst. specially after obtaining approval from ACS for other titles in IT occupation. for further reference on what they require now...read below.


UNIT GROUP 2611 ICT BUSINESS AND SYSTEMS ANALYSTS


ICT BUSINESS AND SYSTEMS ANALYSTS work with users to formulate system requirements, develop system plans and documentation, review and evaluate existing systems, and design and modify systems to meet users' business needs.
Non-ICT Business Analysts (for example, Management Consultants) are excluded from this unit group. Non-ICT Business Analysts are included in Unit Group 2247 Management and Organisation Analysts.

Indicative Skill Level:
In Australia and New Zealand:

Most occupations in this unit group have a level of skill commensurate with a bachelor degree or higher qualification. At least five years of relevant experience and/or relevant vendor certification may substitute for the formal qualification. In some instances relevant experience and/or on-the-job training may be required in addition to the formal qualification (ANZSCO Skill Level 1).

Tasks Include:
working with users to formulate and document business requirements
identifying, investigating, and analysing business processes, procedures and work practices
identifying and evaluating inefficiencies and recommending optimal business practices, and system functionality and behaviour
using project management methodologies, principles and techniques to develop project plans and to cost, resource and manage projects
taking responsibility for deploying functional solutions, such as creating, adopting and implementing system test plans, which ensure acceptable quality and integrity of the system
creating user and training documentation, and conducting formal training classes
developing functional specifications for use by system developers
using data and process modelling techniques to create clear system specifications for the design and development of system software
acting as a central reference and information source, providing guidance and assistance in the system project decision making process

Occupations:
261111 ICT Business Analyst
261112 Systems Analyst

261111 ICT BUSINESS ANALYST

Alternative Titles:

I think confusion will be to the fore when potential applicants attempt to see how a prior ASCO classification matches up to the new ANZSCO ones and it is really something that needs to be left behind, water under the bridge let us say.

The ANZSCO classifications are the new standard for all occupations and so it'll be those classifications which applicants need to be assessed against by ACS.
I haven't had a look to see if ACS have anything on their site re transition from ASCO to ANZSCO but I would not be surprised if ACS have a process for applicants who have had a recent positive ASCO assessment and also have the additional requirements for a successful ANZSCO assessment.

well ACS has to put that in order anyways. im sure they will according to their proffessionalism. anyways the current IT occupation in new SOL will cause many confusions as it already has...
the state migration plans hopefully would bring some light into the situation which ofcourse depend on what occupations they will have in their eligibility list. but the criteria for IT is quite less compared to old SOL... as theres only ICT business analyst, systems analyst, analyst programmer, developer programmer and software engineers.

any news that involves IT occupations please update this thread to help others in confusion!

thank you

The State Migration Plans will also be based on ANZSCO for whatever occupations will be listed, the ANZSCO being a new approach developed re occupation classifications regardless of immigration, States or even ACS.
I would expect that it would have been developed to align more with international standards.
