Fagligt indhold:The overall aim of this course is to enable students to understand and participate in IT development cycles. The development of IT systems is a complex development life-cycle, and engages various interconnected phases and actors (e.g., IT managers, software developers, designers, business analysts, users, project managers etc.). The successful implementation of each phase within the development cycle and the right engagement of actors lead to overall IT development success.

The course will cover and deal with each phase in the IT development cycle individually. The cycle will be broken down into themes: initiation, system concept development, planning, requirements analysis, design, code-based development, integration and test, implementation, operation and maintenance, and termination. The course is organized around discussions of these themes and offers theoretical and practical knowledge base. The course will examine all aspects of these themes and will concentrate on well-established and developed ones. The main objective here is to let students walkthrough all phases, enable them to actively take part in the entire IT development cycle and plays different roles.
