The unit provides an overall introduction to the different components of digital information infrastructures in organisational contexts. This includes organisational enterprise systems architecture, legacy systems, enterprise systems, cloud infrastructure and enabling technologies such as blockchain, internet of things, or web services. Strategic managerial issues that arise from the implementation, use, and security management of information infrastructures and enterprise systems are also covered. The unit utilises a combination of practical sessions with Enterprise Systems, such as SAP, and case study analyses to build a deep understanding of relevant topics.
