Information systems (IS) refers to the business side of technology. It looks at the way businesses structure their systems of information and the various ways that people and organisations make use of technology to improve their processes and workflows. This course gives you the skills to analyse existing information systems, develop new systems and find solutions to common IS management issues.
Digital information has revolutionised the way the world does business. The discipline of information systems is about the capture, strategic use and associated technology of digital information in the business environment. The role of an information systems professional focuses on applying technology and strategic decision-making to the job of managing vast quantities of a business’s information.
In this course you’ll focus on developing and applying information technology solutions to real-life business problems. For example, you’ll learn how to perform basic SQL (Structured Query Language) queries and develop the ability to critically analyse an organisation’s information needs so that you can decide on the best information management approach.
To get a broad understanding of the context of IS in a modern business setting, you’ll cover areas such as data storage, professional ethics in the digital age, IS strategies relating to social media and mobile technology, infrastructure and the Cloud.
