This course sheds light on the assessment of large information systems from multiple conceptual angles and on different levels of granularity.
As a central learning objective, participants will be provided with a differentiated conceptual apparatus to assess characteristics of distributed information systems and to reason about the quality, economic value, and ethical implications of different architectural alternatives and implementation techniques of information systems.
This course is the follow-up of INFOEBU E-business. You can list only one of the two courses in your study program.
Midterm and final exam.
A repair test requires at least a 4 for the original test.
Information Science deals with information systems in the large and is based on an understanding of information systems as the interplay between humans and technological components in distributed contexts.|
In order to assess characteristics of such systems, a differentiated terminology and specialized modeling techniques, as well as an understanding of universal technological instruments for integration are needed.
The course topics are:
- Value modeling
- Enterprise architecture modeling
- Multi-level conceptual modeling
- Supply chain and e-commerce architectures
- Integration technologies
- Assessment of integration quality
In the tutorial part of the course, approaches for modeling and implementing integrated distributed systems will be applied by the participants in practical case-studies.
Lectures and tutorials.
Course material will be provided during the course.
