This program deals with information and communication technologies (often abbreviated using the acronym ICT) with a strong focus on how they are understood, applied and used within organisational servings in particular in business organisations.
These technologies are Important and interesting to study. but we should appreciate at the outset that this course is not just about these technologies in an isolated sense, but about what to do with them. why we become involved with them, and all the management problems associated with them.
We build our technologies into organisational information systems, and these technologies allow organisations (and even societies) to change the ways in which they operate. To achieve this, available ICT’s can be adopted to capture, store, manipulate and distribute information. When we see a collection of these technologies (or technical things — compacts networks, databases), linked together and working within an organisational setting, probably alongside and involving people, and providing some service or value to somebody, we can see an information system. We focus in particular on how organisations of all types seek to use technologies to develop their own information activities for their own purposes.
Information Systems Development and Management aims to provide a critical understanding of the context within which IS professionals perform specific technical tasks.
