I am trying to obtain this:

enter image description here

I use itemize and \systeme

\begin{itemize}
  \item \[
  \systeme*{3 - 4x > 5,6 + 9x \leq 1}
  \]
  \item \[
  \systeme*{3x -6 > 2x,2x - 6 > 5x}
  \]
\end{itemize}

But I end up with:

enter image description here

I would like that the bullet from the unordered list to be centered in the \systeme.

Thank you!

I add my answer using the enviroment cases instead of systeme package with the simple common package amsmath.

\documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{article}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\begin{document}
\begin{itemize}
\item $\mathrel{\mkern-15mu}\begin{cases}
3 - 4x > 5&\\
6 + 9x \leq 1
\end{cases}$
\item $\mathrel{\mkern-15mu}\begin{cases}
3x -6 > 2x&\\
2x - 6 > 5x
\end{cases}$
\end{itemize}
\end{document}

enter image description here

If you want to approach the point (bullet) near the system symbol you can increase the value 15mu (always with the minus sign) and, from the output, you see what is your preferred distance.

You were almost there! All you need to change is to replace the display-math setting with an inline-math setting, i.e., replace the \[ ... \] wrapper with $ ... $.

enter image description here

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{systeme}
\begin{document}
\begin{itemize}
  \item $\systeme*{3 - 4x > 5,6 + 9x \leq 1}$
  \item $\systeme*{3x -6 > 2x,2x - 6 > 5x}$
\end{itemize}
\end{document}

Here are two solutions for horizontally and vertically centred systems:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[svgnames]{xcolor}
\usepackage{mathtools}
\usepackage{systeme}
\usepackage{showframe}
\renewcommand{\ShowFrameLinethickness}{0.2pt}

\begin{document}

\mbox{}
\begin{itemize}
  \item \makebox[\linewidth]{$ \systeme*{3 - 4x > 5,6 + 9x \leq 1} $}
  \item \hfill $ \systeme*{3x -6 > 2x,2x - 6 > 5x} $\hfill\null
\end{itemize}

\end{document}
