67-250: The IS Milieux
This course is designed to help students understand the role of information systems in modern society and the means by which these systems are created. We will begin by focusing on the economics of information and how new technologies change business decisions at various levels. Later we will look at the internal behavior of organizations that use information systems and see how the use and existence of these systems influence choices within the organization. Finally, we will send time talking about the development of information systems, various models used to create these systems and principles of effective software engineering. Interspresed throughout the semester will be technology interludes where we will focus for a few lectures on some of the basic technologies fueling the internet age. By the end of this course, students will have a better understanding of the people, process, and technolgy issues connected with modern information systems.
