Systems Analysis and Design for Mobile Apps is tailored to the Mobile App Tools Associate Certificate. Students in this face to face section must supply their own MacBook Pro with current OS in order to participate. The focus is on best practices in Business Analysis and Systems Design; the concepts, processes and tools used to plan and develop mobile information systems to industry standards. Participants learn how to ask implicit questions, to create and document communication plans and to make better decisions prior to creating an information system. They learn to work in groups to provide detailed written materials and make verbal presentations of their mobile application designs. Beginning with an introduction to the SDLC, Software Development Life Cycle, students work in teams to initiate the system process, analyze problems, discover requirements and create a logical design. The process starts with a definition of the business opportunity and progresses to implement a sustainable and scalable mobile design that can adapt to changing requirements. Topics include: techniques used in the discovery of business requirements, traditional approaches to data and process modelling. There is an overview of Object Oriented Modelling techniques using the Unified Modelling Language (UML) as well as an introduction to Project Management. Agile frameworks including XP, Extreme Programming, and SCRUM are also introduced. By the end of this course, successful participants will be able to use industry standard tools and methods to discover requirements, design an interface and create documentation that acts as a blueprint to implement a mobile device information system
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
