Learning Objectives

Acquire a basic grounding in what information systems are and how they are used in companies and organisations in general. The course aims to deal with the world of ICT in all its facets: from a wide-ranging examination of individual computer and network technologies to the description and classification of the business models of digital market players. Not neglecting the analysis of the ethical and social impact of development models and the interpretation of the main current trends. Topics covered will include: technologies at the service of information systems, e-commerce, mobile computing and business models, cloud computing, information system security, cybercrime and ethical aspects.

Program

  • What are information systems
  • The relationship between the concept of information systems and that of information technology
  • The digital enterprise and the information systems that underpin the digital enterprise (ERP, CRM, SCM,SID)
  • The information system as a computer-based information system (CBIS)
  • The technical resources of the I.S. (hardware and software) and their management (in-house, insourcing, co.sourcing, outsourcing, joint ventures, consortia)
  • Specific strategies for application software management (ad hoc software development, reuse of existing software, open source software, commercial software, application service provider)
  • Critical success factors for technical resource management strategies (choice of IT strategies, choice of supplier, supply contract)
  • Blook-in constraints for switching from one technical solution to another and the blook-in effect in resource management
  • Telecommunications networks
  • What is the Internet and how it works
  • Packet switching and the IP rotocol
  • Internet and the spread of broadband infrastructures
  • Technologies that make transactions on the Internet acceptable
  • Control of software licences
  • Organisational innovations arising from telecommunications networks exploiting bandwidth
  • Video communication
  • Teleworking
  • Document management

Bridging Courses

Although there are no formal prerequisites, for a better use of the training action it is recommended to follow up and obtain the suitability of IT skills.

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

In relation to the teaching of computer science, the student must show possession of the:

  • Knowledge and under standing. By the end of the course, students should be able to understand and explain what information systems are and how they are used in companies and organisations in general.
  • Ability to apply knowledge and understanding (applying knowledge and understanding). At the end of the course, students will have to demonstrate the ability to apply the knowledge they have acquired on information systems in the business environment and be able to understand what potential information systems technologies offer for the development of business models.
  • Autonomy of judgement (making judgements). At the end of the course, students will have to demonstrate the ability to use knowledge and concepts to reason autonomously according to the logic of the discipline.
  • Communication skills. By the end of the course, students should be able to expound and discuss the topics studied with conceptual and linguistic precision, and to outline general frameworks that effectively and succinctly illustrate the issues addressed.
  • Learning skills. By the end of the course, students should be familiar with the basic concepts of computer and network technologies so that they can independently acquire new knowledge by consulting in-depth bibliographical tools.

Assessment

The final assessment test is written and aimed at assessing the knowledge and understanding of the concepts presented in class, as well as their relative practical application to real cases.

The final assessment test may consist of tests (single choice, multiple or completion), questions with open answers or based on the resolution of simple case studies consistent with those analyzed during classroom lessons (and reported in the teaching material made available on the teaching site).

Disabilità e DSA

Le studentesse e gli studenti che hanno registrato la certificazione di disabilità o la certificazione di DSA presso l'Ufficio Inclusione e diritto allo studio, possono chiedere di utilizzare le mappe concettuali (per parole chiave) durante la prova di esame.

A tal fine, è necessario inviare le mappe, due settimane prima dell’appello di esame, alla o al docente del corso, che ne verificherà la coerenza con le indicazioni delle linee guida di ateneo e potrà chiederne la modifica.
