The development of a new information system involves several different, but related activities. These activities, or phases, usually include planning, analysis, design, implementation, and maintenance/ support. In other words, SDLC is a conceptual model that guides project management in information system development.
This course provides a methodical approach to developing computer systems including systems planning, design, testing, implementation and software maintenance. Emphasis is on the strategies and techniques of systems analysis and design for producing logical methodologies for dealing with complexity in the development of information systems. The course approaches the development of information systems (IS) from a problem-solving perspective.
