Prerequisite: MHC520 or MMG715 or equivalent experience. Systems analysis and design is a critical competency for information technology. This course focuses on techniques for designing information systems more effectively and efficiently, by linking the information system, business mission and purpose and technology. Students learn the core skills required by systems analysts: from gathering requirements and modeling business needs, to creating blueprints for how the system should be built and implemented in a particular organization. The course provides a concise, yet informative theory of the systems development life cycle, and touches on project management, infrastructure management, system development and system implementation with examples from a variety of industries.
