Information systems are fundamental to modern economies and organisations, but their effects on individuals, groups and societies are complex. The aims of this module are to provide you with the conceptual framework required to understand how information systems can be used to support organisational objectives; how technology impacts upon society; how information systems affect social structures; and how new technologies influence the lives of individuals in ways that may not be immediately apparent.
● Analyse and critically evaluate the use, benefits and costs of information systems within organisations.
● Understand the application of information systems systems both internally and externally, and their importance to organisational strategy.
● Understand and evaluate the impact of technological change on information systems within organisations.
● Critically evaluate the social, cultural, structural and political aspects of information systems and their interrelationships.
