Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Goal of this course is to provide fundamental information about architecture and function of complex system creation process in wide and dynamic area of e-Government. We offer comprehensive overview of several system creation tools and methods that are commonly used in ICT (information and communications technology) aimed for needs of citizens, businesses, state and private sector. Students reach basic knowledge and skills in area of security of e-Government systems by solving several individual tasks. We focus on biometrics methods, certification authorities, security certificates and other multilevel security methods. Students are learned to create effective and professional documentation as necessary part of system creation. They also gain knowledge about data stream between different subsystems of e-Government. In addition to theoretical information we provide practical illustrations of e-Government systems. There is possibility to consult all earned knowledge with extern consultants from real companies.
Course contents:
Concepts and principles (E-government, G2C, G2B, G2E, G2G, C2G).
Real applications of e-Government system in relation of private and state sector towards to citizens and businesses (information flow between citizens/business and state, private, health, finance sectors).
Usage of fundamental models of software creations to design and create robust information system (phases in system creation, system creation models and use-case diagrams).
Usage of software design pattern as templates for system architecture creation.
Security in information systems (biometrics, certification authorities, electronic signatures).
Modern methods of project management (Agile and lean methods, SCRUM)
Usage of version systems and test-driven software development (SVN, Git).
