Subject Description
The subject explores the technology being adopted by organisations and the various means of maximising business potential using Internet technology, including eBusiness (B2B, B2C, B2G etc.). The focus of the course is from the IT professional perspective, giving the student a feel for what is required in a commercial business environment. The technology aspects will cover both developing in house software, as well as selecting 'best practice' outsourced options. Comparisons are drawn between the two adoption methods, and the student is engaged by scenario role playing as part of the group assignments.
