DIGITAL NETWORKS AND DIGITAL BUSINESS (BYTE SIZE) COURSE
 
DIGITAL NETWORKS AND DIGITAL BUSINESS (BYTE SIZE) COURSE
 
£250.00
 

COURSE CODE 483


 

In this course, we explore the dramatic effect that connection and networking can have on the power of information systems that are based on the exploitation of modern IT. We are therefore developing the important concept of integration. Integration can have important strategic effects. In this course, you see just what these effects are in the fields of managing in a global, digitised business environment.

Networking can also be important at a more local level. Both organisations and individuals can be affected in various, but often conflicting, ways. We look at how networked computer-based information systems can promote discovery, communication and collaboration. We begin by taking an overall view of the Internet and explaining the ways that people can use it to communicate. Since communication enables collaboration, we then go on to describe group support systems and how they can help management decision making in organisations.

In the business context, a major promise of the Internet is the development of electronic commerce. We therefore consider the potential range of operation, benefits and limitations of e-commerce. Our study will include a number of practical applications.

Finally, we consider the ethical and other issues at the human level which all these developments bring with them. Like previous technological revolutions, global information systems have significant implications for both individuals and society, and we need to be aware of these as management decision makers.

After completing this course, you should be able to:

    * distinguish between various forms of networked information technology
    * understand the concept of the Internet and explain the ways in which it enables communication
    * demonstrate how networks facilitate collaboration between users
    * describe the main features of electronic commerce and critically appreciate its dimensions, benefits and limitations
    * demarcate managerial strategies for using networks
    * identify the ethical impacts of global networked information technology.
