ICT System Acquisition and Integration KIT303

Hobart

Introduction

In this unit students will be introduced to the key concepts and principles involved in the sourcing, integration and management of ICT assets as a key organisational resource. The unit examines two strategic themes: organisational approaches to the sourcing and implementation of ICT solutions; and organisational approaches to the adoption and management of its ICT assets. These two sets of issues are inter-related - effective ICT implementation is only possible when the solutions chosen match the organisation's human and organisational needs. This unit therefore includes a practical set of principles, tools and techniques to follow when managing the acquisition and integration of all corporate ICT solutions.This unit provides students with an understanding of the underlying issues of ICT sourcing and integration and the management of vendors and service providers; the knowledge of management functions and responsibilities necessary for ICT managers to ensure acceptance and adoption of new solutions; and the skills to apply ICT management principles in the organisational environment. Main topics include: the changing IS environment; introducing new/improved systems into a business (hardware, software, networks, services, vendors and staff); effective change management; and managing essential technologies.
