Knowledge and understanding
At the end of the course, students will be expert both on the functioning and on the information architecture of modern Information Systems, especially regarding the core modules and the information flows of ERP and APO systems. Also, they will understand how the integration of such systems makes it possible to practically implement the so-called “process oriented management”.
Applying knowledge and understanding
Students will develop the skills needed to compare in relative terms the capabilities of the different solutions available on the market and to prepare a detailed technical specification for the acquisition of an information system.
Students will be able to assess the strategic, tactic and operating impact related to the adoption of an information system.
Students will acquire the vocabulary and the acronyms related to the information systems (such as relational and object oriented Data Base, Data Warehouse, OLAP, ERP, SAP, SCEM, etc.). They will also be able to communicate such concepts both in conceptual terms, or making use of logical schemes, flow charts and pseudo-codes.
The expertise developed by the students will be enough to fully understand specialized literature and technical materials.
