The aim of the course is to bring together skills acquired on previously studied information systems courses (see prerequisites). You will work in a group to experience the system development process from requirements gathering through to software implementation. The project is expected to involve a business application delivered over the Web such that it might be delivered via the SaaS model. The choice of business application will be negotiated by the student group with their consulting academic, who will provide ongoing supervision and guidance through regular meetings. The system development practical work will include requirements analysis, system design and HCI design. A prototyping approach will be encouraged where groups create non-functional prototypes early in the development process to demonstrate proof of concept.
