Course Description

Information systems focuses on identifying organisational requirements for applications and acquiring effective systems solutions, whether custom designed and built or selected and implemented, to meet the requirements. Skills involve the design, development and maintenance of large database applications for business, as well as the identification, purchase and implementation of packaged software addressing business problems. It does not require in-depth knowledge of computer programming but rather in-depth specialised knowledge of databases and software used in business.

This area of information technology involves interaction with people – identifying their needs and assisting them to design solutions to these needs. These solutions could be new business processes, services, tools or a deeper understanding of how these create better ways of working. Modern information technology professionals need to know more than technology. They have to understand how to shape the industries of the future through an effective blend of information technology and business knowledge.
