MPTM-632-01 Enterprise Modernization
Fall for 2017-2018
The Enterprise Modernization course changes every dimension of an organization—how it views itself, responds to its needs, and conducts its business. In this course, we will focus on the management challenges posed by emerging technologies and learn how to overcome these obstacles. We will explore how these technologies and implementation strategies affect (and are affected by) political, social, economic, and cultural factors. This course will examine how a successful organization adapts to transform its business processes and cultural mindset with agility and flexibility enabled through Information Technology (IT) and rapidly integrates IT as a strategic business enabler in responding to emerging business conditions and challenges.
This course will explore modernization strategies needed to leverage technology to drive transformations across the enterprise and to achieve outcomes that improve business efficiencies, reduce cost and establish effective partnership between IT and business. This course will examine the core outcomes that must be achieved by an IT organization to fundamentally shift the paradigm of being seen as a cost driver to one of an efficiency enabler as it leads modernization and technology assertion across the organization.
Some of the key topics discussed in the course will include: The role of the Enterprise Architecture, Web 2.0, open government, transparency and governance, information security and privacy, information sharing and collaboration and managing organizational change.
