COIT20250 - E-Business Systems

General Information

Unit Synopsis

The business world has witnessed the digital revolution at the beginning of 1990's. Since then, significant business growth has been driven by the Internet; and organisations without e-business (electronic business) strategies will lose the chance to be competitive in this dynamic digital marketplace environment. Therefore, companies need to interact with their suppliers, customers and partners in an electronic medium such as online, mobile or social platforms. The objective of this unit is to provide students with an in-depth understanding and knowledge of using e-business from day to day business operations to strategic level. The unit will help students to obtain a high level understanding of the ICT infrastructure supporting e-business as well as knowledge of different e-business models and systems. Students will also have an opportunity to develop a small-scale e-business prototype web site using open source technologies.
