Every day, tons of data are generated by every function of an organization - data that requires proper handling and utilization to be of functional use. Information systems are designed to extract what is relevant in a timely fashion. This course will give you an insight into the various business functions of an organization and the systems used to support each function. Firstly, information systems for manufacturing management will be covered, as you learn about the associated business processes and subsystems involved. Go on to explore the production planning subsystem and how it maintains data on all production-related activities. You will also discover how the computer-aided design system automates the creation and revision of product designs using sophisticated graphics software and the use of virtual reality systems in providing support for manufacturing operations. Following this, the materials management and quality management systems will be covered in-depth, including the business processes, and the supporting subsystems associated with them. 

The next module will continue the coverage of essential business processes, beginning with marketing management. You will learn why it is imperative for any marketing manager to identify the target market in an accurate manner and how the three marketing subsystems are used to reach their goals. Other functions explored through the lens of information systems management are sales and distribution (with subsystems including sales force automation, sales order processing, and the analysis and reporting), finance and accounting (ledger accounting subsystem, accounts payable and accounts receivable, and the asset accounting subsystem). Finally, you will explore Human Resource Management (HRM) information systems and the associated business processes and subsystems for this function. You will delve into the legal and compliance responsibilities, development of employees, management of talents, support for hiring as well as succession planning activities. 

This is a multidisciplinary course that extends to virtually every industry on the planet. There are far too many forecasts and prospects for success in this single path.
