Assessment topic
The purpose of Assessment 2 and Assessment 3 is to evaluate your ability to develop
a comprehensive implementation proposal for an information system that uses a
systems approach.
The proposal should be targeted at a potential ‘sponsor’ organisation (your workplace)
that will need to be convinced of the appropriateness and effectiveness of the proposed
new system.
Part A of the proposal (Assessment 2) focuses on understanding your organization (or
the organization you have chosen) and exploring the opportunity for IS/IT improvement
(e.g., selecting an information system to support organizational’s strategic objectives)
while Part B of the proposal (Assessment 3) focuses on designing and implementing the
chosen system.
Choose an information system (e.g., ERP systems, CRM systems, SCM Systems,
Management Information Systems, Decision Support Systems, Executive Information
Systems, Enterprise Portals, Data Warehouse & Data Mining Applications, Enterprise
Collaboration Systems, Knowledge Management Systems, among others) that you have
studied in this unit. Alternatively, you may wish to combine features of several systems.
For the purposes of both Part A and Part B of the proposal, the IS/IT improvement
should not focus on Apps, mobile devices, social media or similar aspects. If you are
unsure, then consult your tutor.
Your assignment should describe the steps of the Systems Development Life Cycle
(SDLC) discussed in Topic 3 of the subject. The proposed system must address an
identifiable problem/opportunity that exists in the sponsor organisation (your
workplace) and relate to particular aspects of the organisation’s overall strategic
directions. It is important that you select the features of your system carefully and
justify your selection. Do not just use (be critical of the use of) the standard features of a
commercially available software package. For the purposes of this assignment, try to
keep the system that you are proposing to a manageable size.
Your proposed system could help the ‘sponsor’ organisation by:
 improving an existing manual information system
 introducing a new information system
 creating a new business opportunity
 improving organisational productivity.
The sponsor is generally a senior person within the organisation who has the authority
to approve such projects.
Format for Assessment 2
The format of the formal assignment will be:
 Title page
 Table of contents
 Introduction
 Body of your assignment with suitable headings and subheadings
 Conclusions
 Reference list (Harvard referencing style is required)
 Appendices (including a background of the organisation for your unit assessor!).

INTRODUCTION OF ERP INFORMATION SYSTEM IN SCHOOLS

3. Benefits of using ERP in schools
4. Disadvantages of technology in schools and controls

6. References and citations

An information system is a software that helps the organizations to collect, store, manage and retrieve data. Information system is sometimes also known as a computerized information system “which covers people, machines or organized methods to collect, process, transmit and disseminate data representing information for the user or client”. http:
en.m.wikipedia.org>wiki>information system.
Information system is an amalgamation of hardware, software and telecommunication networks that organizations create and deploy for successful data management. Most schools use a traditional student information system which comprises of a large number of manual processes for proper administration namely admissions, fee collection and submission, writing tests, evaluating teats written and grading them as well as documenting important information in files. This entire process proves very cumbersome taking into account the major influx of students into our school in recent years. The call of the day was to develop an upgraded student information system where the entire manual process will be automated, student data is collected and managed on a single platform and productivity of the institution is enhanced. Hence I suggested developing an ERP based software for better outcomes and save a lot of time and energy. (Bourgeois, n.d.)
WHAT IS ERP?
ERP or Enterprise Resource Planning is an advanced information system where a lot of processes needed to make an organization work are integrated onto a common platform with a common database. The ERP assures distinctness, competence, increased capability and productivity in every department of an organization making day to day complex tasks very easy. ERP systems “facilitate regulatory compliance, reduce risks, fast track reporting” and also makes it easy for the “flow of real time information across departments so that businesses can make data driven decisions and manage performances” www.sap.com.
BENEFITS OF ERP
ERP will help students and teachers, administration and various groups across school campus to communicate freely, under coherent and productive conditions. With this information system the school will be able to conjure up an atmosphere where students get the facilities and amenities they deserve, the faculty assists and expedites the learning process in the classrooms, improves communication between management, student and teachers and the managerial staff are well equipped with knowledge and information that puts them in a position to be increasingly informative, helpful and productive. After all the school is a place...
