IT-based information systems have enormous potential to enhance important business features such as productivity, profitability, quality, customer service, creativity, and decision making.

Due to its importance and growing complexity – not to mention the cost implications – you need to consider how you to approach any kind of IT deployment.

Deploying IT infrastructure isn’t as simple as buying computers and software and expecting it all to work. An effective and efficient IT system relies on careful planning.

This course will demonstrate how hardware and software rollouts must be planned for, justified, constructed, operated, maintained and protected if they are to enable and support the business.

The course also explores the concerns that managers face as they deal with information systems.

This course concentrates on what must be done before you begin the development of any information system; to plan.

After completing this course, you should be able to:

  • Understand the relationship between business planning and information systems planning
  • Identify the major issues raised by the need for information systems planning
  • Identify the key role of information systems requirements in the information systems planning process
  • Relate business systems requirements to the choice of information technology architectures
  • Assess the economics of systems development
