The learning material includes…
- Define an information system’s architecture in terms of KNOWLEDGE, PROCESSES, and COMMUNICATION—the building blocks of all information systems. Consistent with modern trends, these building blocks will be distributed across a network.
- Differentiate between logical and physical data flow diagrams, and explain how physical data flow diagrams are used to model an information system’s architecture.
- Describe both centralized and distributed computing alternatives for information system design, including various client/server and Internet-based computing options.
- Describe database and data distribution alternatives for information system design.
- Describe user and system interface alternatives for information system design.
- Describe various software development environments for information system design.
- Describe strategies for developing or determining the architecture of an information system.
- Draw physical data flow diagrams for an information system’s architecture and processes.
