During 2021 we will continue to support students who need to study remotely due to the ongoing impacts of COVID-19 and travel restrictions. Make sure you check the location code when selecting a unit outline or choosing your units of study in Sydney Student. Find out more about what these codes mean. Both remote and on-campus locations have the same learning activities and assessments, however teaching staff may vary. More information about face-to-face teaching and assessment arrangements for each unit will be provided on Canvas.

ISYS2110: Analysis and Design of Web Info Systems

This course discusses the processes, methods, techniques and tools that organisations use to determine how they should conduct their business, with a particular focus on how web-based technologies can most effectively contribute to the way business is organized. The course covers a systematic methodology for analysing a business problem or opportunity, determining what role, if any, web-based technologies can play in addressing the business need, articulating business requirements for the technology solution, specifying alternative approaches to acquiring the technology capabilities needed to address the business requirements, and specifying the requirements for the information systems solution in particular, in-house development, development from third-party providers, or purchased commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) packages.

At the completion of this unit, you should be able to:

  • LO1. Produce clear well-constructed technical documents and diagrams and deliver an oral presentation

  • LO3. Discuss the stages in the process of developing an information system, and the relationship to the organisational context (especially the role of systems analysts interacting with other stakeholders), and explain the way the process uses documents such as requirements descriptions and analysis models.
  • LO4. Develop understanding of tasks involved in identifying alternative system solutions and assessing their feasibility.
  • LO5.

  • LO6. Demonstrate experience of data modelling based on a substantial realistic context and develop awareness of the tasks involved when working with conceptual data model documents, along with the ability to create, interpret and evaluate UML class structure diagrams.
  • LO7. Demonstrate experience of process modelling based on a substantial realistic context and develop awareness of the tasks involved when working with process model documents, along with the ability to create, interpret and evaluate UML message sequence diagrams and activity diagrams
