About your Course

This short course will help you learn about the collection, retention and processing of data within a structured information system.

You will learn about how plans for information systems can be implemented and once they are implemented, how they should be managed.

Considering how systems may be implemented leads us to consider what methods can be used, whilst determining how they should be managed. This requires us to consider what control needs to be applied to the implemented system to ensure its continuing success.

This course will enable you to:

  • Explain the concept of a systems development life cycle (SDLC)
  • Critically assess the relationship between the traditional SDLC and other systems development
  • Identify the role of prototyping in systems development
  • Assess the benefits of using object-orientation in systems development
  • Compare alternatives for acquiring new systems
  • Identify the main requirements for secure systems
