IS 453 - Information Systems Analysis and Design

(3.00 cr.)

How do you design a set of tools to help people organize and execute work when your organization is experiencing change all the time? This course introduces the development of information systems in organizations. Students learn an overview of systems analysis and design - planning, analysis, design, and implementation phases of the software development lifecycle (SDLC). Students apply the Agile, Design-thinking approach to empathize, define, ideate, prototype, and test mobile-first solutions (i.e., a mobile app) to solve real-world business problems. Students use several tools and techniques to help manage projects, ideas, user stories, prototypes, and collaborate with others in sprints. Students share and inform audiences of their project through oral and written presentations. Topics also include the roles of the systems analysts, designers, developers, and product owners, as well as global and ethical concerns in systems development.
