EH2770 IT Management with Enterprise Architecture I 7.5 credits
IT-Management med Enterprise Architecture I
Previously, business operations of most large enterprises were supported by a number of isolated IT systems performing miscellaneous and specific tasks, from real-time process control to administrative functionality such as payroll and billing. In order to better achieve business goals, these systems have in recent years been extended, and more importantly, integrated into a company-wide system in its own right, the enterprise IT system. Due to its history, this system is composed of a considerable number of heterogeneous components interacting by means of equally diverse connectors. To enable rational evolution and design, where the business’s requirements are transformed into technically and economically beneficial IT systems, holistic enterprise architecture models of the system are a necessity.
The purpose of this course is to develop students' understanding of and ability for using enterprise architecture models to describe and design cost-effective IT system portfolios that also provides a good support to the businesses that are using them.
