Course Overview
GET439 builds an understanding of the technical and management architecture that comprise
enterprise computing environments. The course focuses on identifying and solving large complex
problems by using enterprise computing technologies. Also, included are the basic architecture and
technology principles that comprise enterprise computing environments. The course addresses the
analysis of the underlying computer hardware and software architecture including: operating systems,
as well as, the management issues relating to enterprise and distributed computing systems, enterprise
applications, databases, security, application development policies, standards and guidelines, software
procurement, custom development, operating system selection: z/OS, Linux, Windows, various
application development and deployment environments, discussion of software sourcing issues,
software reuse design, software maintenance, change control and configuration management.

Class Participation (50 points)

Preparation - There are a number of readings, tutorials and workshops that should be
completed prior to class. This will facilitate both class discussions and lab exercises. There are a
number of good resources in Blackboard so be sure to familiarize yourself with them.

Discussion – There will be discussion activities that include your responses to case study
questions, discussion questions and real world problems in nearly every class. There are no
provisions to make up missed class discussion activities. Therefore, it is important that you
attend class.
Assignments (250 points)

Labs (200 points) – There will be ten (10) labs that will reinforce the concepts and principles
covered in our classroom lectures, readings and discussions.

Enterprise Technology Project (50 points) – There will be one project. This assignment will
reflect your ability to use the enterprise technologies learned in this course to solve technology
problems. For more detail, see the Enterprise Technology Project Guidelines.
Exams (200 points)

Exams (100 points) – There will be two (2) exams. These exams will be based on class
lectures, readings, labs and other course related activities.

Attendance Policy
Regular class attendance is obligatory. An instructor may recommend that a student be dropped from
a course for poor achievement due to excessive absence. A student who is dropped after the deadline
for dropping courses may be assigned a grade of F.
Students who have two unexcused absences during the semester may be dropped from the course at
the discretion of the instructor. The instructor or the department offering the course will notify the
Registrar of this action. However, students should not assume that they have been dropped from a
class just because the first two classes were missed. It is ultimately the responsibility of the student to
drop a course that they are not planning to attend by the deadline published in the university calendar.
Blackboard Policy
The School of Information Studies uses a Web-based teaching and learning environment called
Blackboard. Most IST campus courses use Blackboard as a supplement to classroom activities and
all distance learning courses are conducted in Blackboard. Access to Blackboard is available at the
following URL: https://blackboard.syr.edu. Your professor will let you know the date the course will
be available.
Syllabus Change Policy
This syllabus can be changed with sufficient notice from your instructor.
