This course covers the phases from information systems planning through the specification of structured system requirements in functional form (i.e., logical system design) and concentrates on methods, techniques, and tools used to determine information requirements and to document these requirements in a thorough and unambiguous form. Also introduces computer-aided software engineering (CASE) technology. Students learn the discipline of systems analysis and logical design through a hypothetical case situation.
Also, it focuses on ways in which advances in information technology and communications networks continue to recast the role and value of information systems in business and management. Example topics include: organizational and technical foundations of information systems, systems development, information management, infrastructure management, system security, and creative business applications of information technology
