The world runs on computers. You might be familiar on how to operate your home computer but what does it take to really take computer systems to the next level? The enterprise level. In this course we discuss what makes home computing systems different from enterprise computing systems. This course will also help you to get an overview with basic concepts, procedures and trends in information systems, the life cycle of information system development, database architecture, data processing and security. Students will create demo of own information system using HTML, CSS, PHP, MySQL technologies.
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
Graduates will be able to:
- explain the basic concepts of information systems and describe the tasks and objectives using the tools for analysis and documentation of information systems (use cases, activity diagrams, entity diagrams),
- explain the basic instruments for the implementation of database systems,
- describe the tools and technologies for data presentation on the Web.
- analyze the information system, describe it and specify the requirements for its function,
