The purpose of this unit is to provide you with an understanding of the systems development life cycle (SDLC). Using a project approach, we will explore the stages in detail, gathering and analysing customer requirements, designing an IT solution, and planning its testing and implementation. You will identify the various stakeholder perspectives to ensure both that the solution meets the requirements and that the wider implications are considered.

You will develop practical skills in the use of various tools and techniques associated with the various methodologies for systems development.
