INFS3040: Enterprise Systems and Integrated Business

This unit provides students with an in-depth understanding of the way in which implementation and use of large scale integrated Enterprise Systems change the nature of organisational capabilities, processes, and roles. Students will gain an understanding of the strategic role of Enterprise Systems in providing a platform for improved business operations and designing information infrastructures. In this unit, students will gain considerable hands-on experience with an enterprise-wide system, such as SAP, concentrating on the way in which such systems support integrated business processes. Through a combination of discussion and practical work, students will gain a strong knowledge in both the organisational and technical aspects of Enterprise Systems. Students will also explore the emergence and implications of cloud-based Enterprise Systems and the implementation process. Assumed knowledge for this unit is INFS1000 or equivalent.
