Motivation: Companies and other organizations cannot survive without information systems. They support the most central business processes. Currently we are experiencing a development where companies and organizations are forming value networks in which they are exchanging goods and services with other organizations globally. This business transformation associated with rapidly developing ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) opens new possibilities and challenges for Information Systems.
Purpose: The module Enterprise Information Systems studies the most important information systems, their applications and underlying principles. In particular, issues and methodologies related to information systems design and integration are discussed. In this context we emphasize the importance of business processes and models as a starting point for information systems development. The issues are not treated only from the technical point of view. It has become important to understand the enterprise in a wider context which covers the societal and legal frameworks. Thus the module prepares the students to help organizations design and build information systems to meet the future challenges of new business models in a global world with increasingly more tightly knit company and inter-organizational networks.
Examples of job possibilities: Design and implementation of information systems
in industry and government with business development aspects. Research and development
of products in information systems area. Specialist tasks in this domain. Jobs
found in in-house IT organizations, in growing IT service sector and ICT industry.
