Organisations in Australia and around the world are increasingly recognising that they do not operate in isolation and that competitive advantage depends on business networks. The IT-business alignment has been the major challenge as organisations go through the transformation that keeps them competitive and agile. Employing successful enterprise architecture ensures that changes to the business process are correctly supported by information systems and their underlying IT infrastructure.
This undergraduate subject introduces ways in which information systems can support business networking, focusing on sharing information and integrating business activities with business partners. Students learn enterprise architecture methodologies and gain an understanding of the tools and techniques for the design of business.
Through case studies, this subject reinforces material provided in lectures and tutorials, and additional research while giving students scope to enhance their problem-solving, critical thinking and organisational skills. The subject stresses the development and assessment of real-world experience through applied and innovative tasks and with the team effort. Students develop the knowledge and skills required for using and managing information within an organisation.
