Program Description

Information systems program for Intranet and Internet.

This Professional Certification program is designed for people interested in strengthening their skills in the design and programming of management information systems that allow organizations to enter, process and consult information for the control and management of processes.

This program for the help of business decision making is composed of two courses:

  • Design of management information systems for intranet with Microsoft Access.
  • Design of management information systems for the Internet with MySQL / PHP and Joomla.

To be competitive in today's world, organizations-regardless of their size and area of ​​work-must have the ability to manage data in a way that allows for rapid and "informed" control and decision-making. For this, it is necessary to have an integral record of all the "data" of the processes that are carried out. But it is not enough just to have the data tabulated in programs such as Excel spreadsheets or text processors, but what is most important is required: to extract useful "information" from these data in an efficient and effective way, for which It is essential to use more advanced tools, such as the Creation and Management of Relational Database (GBDR) and Information Systems, which have the ability to interrelate and combine multiple tables and objects to obtain fast, professional and accurate reports with a single click, to facilitate analysis and decision making in a company.

With the first course of this Professional Certification program you will learn:

  • Analyze, structure and create a relational database (BDR), according to the automation needs of different proposed processes.
  • To create the user interface with forms, queries, reports and macros, without needing to know the programming language.
  • To understand the SQL language of the Access queries to use it in the second part of the program.

In the second course you will learn:

  • Install the Localhost test server with WAMP (Windows, Apache, MySQL, PHP).
  • Install and manage a content manager on the web with a Joomla Content Management System (CMS).

You will have teachers with more than 20 years of experience as programmers and university professors. The courses of this software development program are essentially practical and you can design the same basic-intermediate information system, one for the intranet and the other for the internet, in such a way that you will develop the cognitive and instrumental competences that will allow you to aspire to the professional certification offered.
