Modalità di esame: prova scritta;
The exam is made of a one simplified case study , (accounting for 80% of the evaluation) and a few open questions. The case study evaluates the capability of the student to: --formalize and analyze a business process in terms of activities, roles and responsibilities, using a specialized language (ex BPMN) --define the conceptual model of information used by an organization, defining the relevant conceptual model using a specialized language (ex UML class diagram) --analyze a change in the information system of an organization, defining pros and cons of the change both in terms of high level (ex Critical Success Factors, Balanced Score Cards) and low level indicators (Key Process Indicators) The open questions (free text answers) cover the remaining parts of the course The exam lasts 2 hours, the use of books or notes is forbidden. Past exams with solutions are available on the course web site.
