Description

Constantly changing environmental conditions and varying demands force companies to constantly update their business model. Multiple factors have to be considered that at first glance do not seem self-evident.
This lecture offers a holistic view of digital transformation. In addition to the basics of digital transformation, the course also focuses on customer and supplier relationships as well as internal changes.

Central to this is an O-I-T (Organisation - Individual - Technique) consideration, which states that the change of an element of this model always has an impact on the entire model. As such, all actors of a transformation process have to be considered, which implicates organisational as well as technology choices. The theoretical findings of the lecture will be implemented in a case study, which makes it possible to deepen and consolidate the learnings.

Content of teaching

  • Definition and concepts of information systems
  • Introduction to the different types of application systems and their characteristics
  • The Digital Transformation Process: Insights into the various phases of implementation and their various facets

  • Understand important characteristics of organizational change and implementation management, as well as implications for interactions between individiduals and systems
  • Learn important concepts and theories in order to successfully execute a digital transformation process

Course outline

The contents of the course will be uploaded to the Ilias-Portal.
