Module Code: Level: INFORMATION SYSTEMS AND BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE 5 Credit Value: 15 Pre-Requisites: None Module Description This module will give students the opportunity to understand the nature of information and business intelligence, the global role of information systems within organizations and, in particular, how they relate to the IS Strategy and the overall corporate strategy. It is intended to equip students to produce an IT solution for managing and analyzing information in a given context. Students will be expected to understand and apply the principles of database design to solve a realistic business problem. This will involve designing, developing and presenting a prototype database system, such as a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system. Emphasis will be placed on the need to involve the user at all stages of systems development and implementation. Learning Outcomes On successful completion of this module, students will be able to: 1. Analyse the role of information systems in organisations, and how business intelligence influences the decision making process. Interpret and analyse user requirements to develop a database that supports decision making. Justify selection of data sources and methods used for analysis and present information generated. 2. 3. Indicative Content Querying and Reporting on data to obtain business intelligence, influencing business strategy and planning Data mining big data. The business value of the components of Information Systems. Types of Information Systems – transaction processing; decision support software; modelling packages; knowledge-based systems; executive information systems Principles of database design – relational data modelling Advantages and disadvantages of the database approach to information systems; comparing alternative models Systems implementation, control and evaluation Analysing quantitative data Learning & Teaching Strategies The main learning and teaching strategy used in this module will be workshop supplemented with lecturing input to provide the theoretical dimension. Students will be provided with worksheets to acquire the requisite software skills with support. Background reading is expected and the key text provides the major source. The practical skill being acquired during this module need to be worked upon in self-managed sessions outside the workshop time.
