There is no company today that does not rely on its management on an information system. A good information system allows the company to adapt quickly and at best to the changes it knows. It allows the fluidification of work, monitoring and rapid access to information. This module presents the importance of integrated information systems in the enterprise. This module also aims to focus on the IS modeling part, from the idea to the realization of a simple solution (under MS Access). It also presents an opening towards the other tools used in the company (APS, SCR, CRM, SRM, ....). This course delves into the skills commonly found in today’s information systems integration in structures. The student will learn how modeling a real situation and going to create an information system based on values from this real situation. This course will not be limited to theoretical concepts but extends to real-world challenging case studies in order to provide hand-on practical experience in apprehending models and solutions.
