Content

The capability to manage data and information is fundamental to any organisation. An information systems graduate should have a good knowledge of the techniques used and be able to identify which of the currently used approaches is appropriate in a given set of circumstances in a particular context. The unit uses familiar applications (eg Facebook, iTunes, GPS systems and Google) to open up an investigation of different approaches to data storage and access using principles of information management. The systems are presented in the wider social context, and security and risk issues that arise from their use will be debated. Students will perform basic SQL queries and develop the ability to critically analyse an organisation’s information needs to allow the informed selection of an information management approach.
