Course objectives
1) Theoretical foundations of the IS-system, basic system characteristics, modeling, structure, system behavior, simple and complex systems, organization and management. 2) IS Theory - A system information, information systems, information systems and management. 3) The operating principle of the IS - data types, information types, data sources, data collection, storage, processing, data retrieval, data distribution. 4) Types of IS typology - Information Retrieval Systems (IRS), Decision Support Systems (DSS), Expert Systems (ES), Management Information Systems (MIS). 5) Fundamentals of IS planning - Methods, methods, techniques and tools for building the IS, the IS life cycle, means for combating the complexity of IS development. 6) Analysis and design of IS - Abstraction (categorization, aggregation, generalization), but the practical. 7) The pre-design phase - design, architecture, inputs, outputs, conditions of realization of the concept, security, project tasks (the expected behavior of the system, defining the stages of construction).
