ITIS313 : Data and Information Management


Department of Information Systems

Academic Program

Bachelor in Information Systems








This course provides the students with an introduction to the core concepts in data andinformation management. It is centered around the core skills of identifying organizational information requirements, modeling them using conceptual data modellingtechniques, converting the conceptual data models into relational data models andverifying its structural characteristics with normalization techniques, and implementingand utilizing a relational database using an industrial-strength database managementsystem. The course will also include coverage of basic database administration tasks andkey concepts of data quality and data security. In addition to developing databaseapplications, the course helps the students understand how large-scale packaged systemsare highly dependent on the use of DBMSs. Building on the transactional databaseunderstanding, the course provides an introduction to data and information managementtechnologies that provide decision support capabilities under the broad businessintelligence umbrella.
