Managing Business Information Systems

This module provides an introduction to the use and impact of IT, communication and integrated technology systems on business organisations. It considers the impacts of IT systems upon the business procedures, the services delivered to customers and the working life of those in the organisation.

From a taxonomy of the different forms of IT system we move to examining the strategic planning and delivery of new systems, the risks to the business, the business advantages to be gained by successful implementations and consider current issues facing business organisations. The course provides the business foundation for other more specialised or technical topics in information systems.
