Course overview

Managing Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in an organisation is not the sole domain of ICT managers. Each manager has to understand how to manage the information in their unit to ensure that their teams can communicate with internal and external clients efficiently and effectively. 

This course deals with handling ICT and business intelligence in an organisation. We will examine processes and management systems; evaluate how ICT can be integrated with business processes, discuss business process re-engineering and enterprise resource planning; and discuss the process of developing an ICT strategy.
