- Introduction to systems development and systems analysis
- AIS development strategies
- Systems design, implementation,and operation
- Accounting and financial specialists, professionals and practitioners who need to understand how accounting information systems (AIS) work in order to effectively measure how cost-effectively they perform, to assess their reliability and that of the information produced, or to lead the redesign and implementation of new and better systems.
- Internal and external auditors.
- Accountants who wish to improve the design and functioning of the AIS so that it truly adds value to the organisation by providing management with the information needed to effectively run organisations.
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to understand:
- The systems development life cycle and the introductory steps of this process (systems analysis, feasibility, and planning).
- The behavioral ramifications of change.
- An organisation’s many options of acquiring or developing an AIS (e.g., purchasing software, writing software, end-user-developed software and outsourcing) and for speeding up or improving the development process (business process re engineering, prototyping, and computer-assisted software engineering).
- The remaining stages of the systems development life cycle (conceptual design, physical design, implementation, and operation and maintenance) and interrelationships between phases.
