Nowadays, information systems form indispensable and business critical assets of organizations. The proper engineering and management of information systems often has a direct impact on the overall success of the organization. Current information systems, however, are complex and include a plethora of modern information technology and trends. This can easily lead to the misalignment between the organization business processes and the information systems. This course targets both future IT managers and engineers, and aims to provide a comprehensive, yet understandable high-level overview of the management and engineering of information systems. The course will provide the appropriate knowledge level of information systems to design, manage, and align business management and information systems in the agriculture and food domain. In addition, we will provide hands-on-experience and teach the important activities of business process modelling, requirements engineering, domain modelling, and high-level architecture design.
