The goal of this course is to familiarise students with the information systems topic and information systems implementation principles. During the course, students are introduced to „on the market“ existing types of systems and their usage in specific industry segments. Students are familiarised with the CRM, ERP, MRP and other types of information systems. The fundamental part of the course is the introduction to key ideas of an information system selection, evaluation of information system benefits, ways of information systems implementation and information system implementation based on the project management principles. The emphasis is on the initial customer analysis, customer insight and ability to decide whether it is better to implement any existing information system or to develop a new one from scratch. These factors determine the information system implementation success. At the end of the course information systems security, operation, support, maintenance, legislation impacts, and government information systems topics are discussed.


Entry knowledge: General knowledge about database technologies, client server principle, basic knowledge about tools for description of real systems behaviour (for example case tools, UML,etc.), user interface implementation knowledge, overview of systems implementation and programming technologies. Project management and essential economic-managerial knowledge.

Study Objective:

The course graduates are able to identify, analyze and describe customer (users) requirements necessary for the selection, implementation, and operation of an information system. They are also able to make out between the different information systems, and they understand the complexity of an information system implementation, support, and maintenance.
