Organisations are increasingly relying on business analytics to make strategic decisions using the data they generate during day-to-day operations. Strategic value will only be obtained if the data is reorganised and made widely accessible at the enterprise level. When data is reorganised to meet this need, there is a real risk that the semantics of the data will be compromised, and that data integrity and security can be violated. Hence, students will learn how data can be captured and reorganised effectively to address these issues, and how to secure the data against threats. Specifically, this unit introduces students to a number of topics in data management (e.g. relational database management), big data systems, and information security. At the end of this unit, students will understand broad issues concerning data management at the enterprise level, gain basic skills in information modelling and querying databases, and understand the procedures and controls for achieving information security.
