Course objectives
The aim of the subject is to acquaint students with the management of projects of information and communication technology and information systems (ICT/IS). ICT/IS in organizations serves to meet strategic goals in the organization. Proper specification of ICT and IS requirements in an institution is a prerequisite for successful implementation of the solution and for meeting the requirements for return on investment in ICT/IS. Student will be familiarized with basic principles of system analysis, enterprise architecture building and ICT services management. Practically acquire the use of software tools for creating diagrams (especially UML) and for project management.
Learning outcomes
At the end of the course, student will be able to:
- able to apply the principles of ICT/IS project management in the organization
- able to process the tender dossier in accordance with the requirements of the ICT/IS service organization
- able to practically analyze the organization's environment to implement an information system or ICT service
- able to manage the implementation process and the subsequent evaluation of information systems or ICT services
- able to work with tools for UML modeling and project management
