Information Systems (IS) are at the core of each enterprise. Any company that strives to be innovative, to increase competitiveness, or to survive market disruptions, must adapt and develop its information management capability. All management tasks rely on information, and the appropriate information and communication technologies (ICT) to manage teams and cooperations with business partners. The course E-Business offers participants a comprehensive introduction to the use of IS in business and management. Participants are provided with the essential knowledge and skills that prepare them for management tasks related to Digital Business in small and large organizations.
The course provides a broad overview of the role of IS for management and of involved challenges and opportunities. The course takes on a management, not a purely technical, perspective. It features an introductory overview, presenting the basic function and strategic importance of business processes, of information and of ICT in organizations. It also acquaints participants with current aspects of designing and managing IS in a world of big data, cloud services and data science that help coping with challenges for management and for advancing emergent businesses. Principal aspects and major trends of managing information technology (IT) within today’s digital business environment are discussed.
The lecture features exercises on basic IS modeling issues in order to advance students in mastering engineering-related challenges. Topical case studies are discussed in class on major subjects. The topic of “Digital Transformation” is approached through a Problem-Oriented Learning (POL) scenario building workshop as group assignment. Depending on schedule, guest speakers illustrate issues raised in the course from a professional perspective.
