Storing and Processing Information
not available (2016-02)
The purpose of this free course, Storing and processing information, is to discuss the main ways in which organisational data is managed, prior to decision-making activity. Organisations are increasingly dependent on information. However, they must first be able to get at information when it is needed, where it is needed and in the form it is needed. Moreover, this information has to complement the gathering, analysing and communication stages of the information management process. After studying this course, you should be able to discuss the main ways in which organisational data is managed, prior to decision making activity, understand the main elements of a computer-based information system, and describe the critical role that databases play in storing and processing information.
