Description This unit is designed to help you understand how information systems (IS) can improve business performance relating to the conduct of accounting based transactions. It will provide you with the skills necessary to identify and assess opportunities and understand the varied ways in which IS can assist in realising them. From an end-to-end systems perspective you will gain knowledge of approaches and methodologies related to the design, implementation, operation and, above all, control of IS. Through graphic representations visual thinking can be applied to analyse, assess and improve business processes. You will learn the importance of an integrated approach to managing business functions including accounting, sales and marketing, logistics and procurement where multiple competing requirements often need to be balanced. You will develop expertise in structured design, including data modelling and process mapping.
