Subject Description

Information Systems (IS) have changed how organisations run their internal operations and the structure of the markets in which they compete. As a result, it is necessary for all business professionals to understand the fundamentals of IS and its impact on the functional areas within the organisation.
This subject describes the contemporary business environment and how technology is integrated into business, government and community systems. It describes ways to leverage IT resources and align them with business goals in an increasingly global environment. It explains the role of information systems (IS) for better business management; and the activities used to develop, implement and maintain IS. In addition, ethics, privacy and information security are highlighted. Students will get the opportunity to complement the theoretical knowledge with practical skills by using and managing, word processing, electronic spreadsheets, and presentation tools.
