Abstract

The course focus is on management information systems (MIS) in the Innovation Digital Economy. The general course goal is studying systems-wide concepts relevant to using and managing information in order to make students acquire skills in management IT/IS Innovation for business value. This course contains the examples and analysis of the current practices of Enterprise Information Systems (EIS) development and implementation in Russian companies as well as abroad. The course explores MIS from two perspectives – theoretical and practical. At the theoretical level, participants will deal with the MIS discourse – a rich conversation of competing ideas, debate, and case-studies. At the practical level, participants will examine a systematic overview both about intelligent methods used throughout the data analysis process and about intelligent, complex machine learning algorithms used in modern data analysis, learn data mining and machine learning with Python. The course includes the IS concepts and classification, the evolution of Information Systems from departmental to enterprise-wide applications, business processes design, and enterprise systems implementation strategies. One of the main topics of the course is devoted to Global Information Systems and emerging computing environments: software-as-a-service (SaaS), service-oriented architecture (SOA) and Web-based Information Systems. This course is intended to provide a study of what contemporary Enterprise Recourse Planning (ERP) systems are. The course also covers Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Supply Chain Management (SHM) and Financial Planning systems and deals with a range of Knowledge Management and Business Intelligence Systems issues. This is a business systems-oriented course in which students explore the deployment of enterprise systems to support critical business processes. To meet the demands of a constantly changing environment, organizations need a clear understanding of how their processes work. The course supports business process improvement by capturing a comprehensive view of the way companies do business and teaches students how to conduct business-processes using the powerful features and capabilities of modern software. It provides an overview of the tools and platforms known as a Business Process Management Suite. Student will learn about the practices and the technologies of EIS to solving business problems and continuously improving organizational performance. Data Culture level: 0.0.4 - Professional.
