This subject critically analyses methods of dealing with both internal and external data available to organisations. This includes data sourced from cloud and social networks. Effective data usage must take into account efficient data storage and retrieval methodologies to realise potential organisational benefits. Students will apply data modelling techniques and data design strategies to complex problems to illustrate how to maximise the efficient storage and retrieval of organisational data.
Students are expected to review their design in the context of current trends as articulated in the academic literature.
