Module/course Summary

This course is reserved for students of the specialization.

The major goal of this course is to learn the basics of systems analysis and design. Modern businesses need information systems to support their business processes. Whether one opts for custom application development, or off-the-shelf information systems, it is important to understand the particular needs of a business to deliver a solution tailored to its requirements. The specification of a business’ information needs is a non-trivial and complex task, and is hardly an exact science. Fortunately, several tools exist that can guide the modern systems analyst in this job.

This course introduces the systems analysis and design process, and the various tools that have been traditionally used to come up with the specification of the information needs of a business (or a business division) that drives the development of the particular information system(s). To reinforce the concepts, the students will form small teams and analyse and design a business information system of their choice.
