The information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure that organisations use to support their business functions, including middleware for service and design integration and data warehousing and analytics.

Large, modern organisations have complex information and communication needs. These enterprises need the support of an appropriate software and information infrastructure in order to meet their business goals. INFO 303 explores how enterprises integrate and use information from a diverse range of sources, with a particular focus on integration middleware, big data, and analytics. INFO 303 equips graduates with the knowledge to manage and use appropriate tools in a dynamic and evolving information environment.
