Question

What's the ideal Systems Analysis and Design curriculum in your opinion?

By gabrielgrote ·
I don't see this course been talked about a lot on the exterior, and if so, it feels like it's a little "less" than SE or VERY similar to it, so, besides the original question, would you say it's safe do compare SE and Systems Analysis and Design curricula to pick one?

Systems Analysis and Design

by deborasumopayroll In reply to What's the ideal Systems ...

Systems development can generally be thought of as having two major
components: Systems analysis and Systems design. System design is the process of
planning a new business system or one to replace or complement an existing system.
But before this planning can be done, we must thoroughly understand the old system
and determine how computers can best be used to make its operation more effective.
System analysis, then, is the process of gathering and interpreting facts, diagnosing
problems, and using the information to recommend improvements to the system.
This is the job of the systems analyst.
Consider, for example, the stockroom operation of a clothing store. To better
control its inventory and gain access to more up – to – date information about stock levels
and reordering, the store asks a system analyst, to “computerize” its stockroom
operations. Before one can design a system to capture data, update files, and produce
reports, one needs to know more about the store operations: what forms are being used to
store information manually, such as requisitions, purchase orders, and invoices and what
reports are being produced and how they are being used
