This unit explores best practices in business. For managers to make the best possible decisions about systems, managers need to know the types of systems available to them. Modern business cannot operate effectively without information systems, therefore information systems are now considered a key strategic asset that is used to create competitive advantage and change organisational processes. In this unit we introduce modern ideas and e.g. explore SAP, an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, customer relationship management systems, knowledge management, data warehousing and outsourcing. The unit highlights ways of evaluating the effectiveness of systems in organisations to promote better understanding (or at least provide an effective interface) between managers and IT practitioners.
