Modern information business processes must make efficient use of resources, be effective in meeting growing consumer demands, and be readily adaptable to changes in the environment. This course examines production processes and service delivery processes, their different information requirements, and the critical role of information systems in supporting them. It explores how businesses are applying different information technologies to improve the vital functions of information gathering, information processing, and information sharing. The application of IT to automate, streamline, reengineer, and integrate business processes enables advances such as mass customization, quality management, supply chain management, and knowledge management. Both the potential challenges and the potential benefits of developing effective processes and systems will be emphasized.
