Aims
After successful completion of the course, students will be able to understand, analyse and model the role of data, information and knowledge in organizations, and how different types of software solutions enable the storage, retrieval, communication and processing of the data that represents the relevant information and knowledge.
Content
During the course, we will investigate the role of data, information and knowledge on three different levels:
- Analysis of information, communication and data flows in organisations (such as email, documents, conversations, product catalogues, social media)
- Modeling and visualising these flows
- Selecting and designing appropriate IT solutions (e.g. relational databases, IR systems, structured file systems, visualisation software)
