This assessment relates to the unit learning outcomes as in the Unit of Study Guide. This assessment is designed to give students skills to explore latest system analysis and design trends, challenges, and future directions.
Topic and Instructions
Systems Analysis and Design (SAD) is undoubtedly a pillar in the field of Information Systems (IS). Some researchers have even claimed that System Analysis and Design is the field that defines the Information Systems discipline and is the core of information systems. The past decades have seen the development of Structured System Analysis and Design methodologies and Object-Oriented Methodologies. In the early 1990s, key players in the field collaborated to develop the Unified Modelling Language and the Unified Process. Agile approaches followed, as did other dynamic methods. These approaches have still been used in the development of contemporary information systems. At the same time, new approaches such as DevOps and DevSecOps continue to emerge. For this assignment you need to explore these trends in System Analysis and Design. You need to write a review of the past and the present Systems Analysis and Design approach in the research paper, discusses current challenges, and provides insights that can assist Systems Analysis and Design researchers to identify future Systems Analysis and Design research streams and important future research directions.
You are required to write a final report of no more than 2500 words (excluding the referencing). Your report should be a single MS Word or OpenOffice document. Please do not use PDF as a submission format. The report will require to have at least 10 references. All citations should be provided using adapted Harvard referencing.
Structure of the paper should include:
- Title of research
- Literature Review
- Discussion (Challenges, insights)
- Conclusion (No summary of the report, provide a future direction for Systems Analysis and Design research streams and direction)
The draft submission should also have this structure with at least one paragraph written in each section. The draft should be at least 1000 words and have at least 5 references.
