Release 

Comments 

Release 1

This version first released with ICT Information and Communications Technology Training Package Version 1.0.

Performance Evidence

Evidence of the ability to:

  • document the internal and external technical environments required to provide a business solution
  • produce a list of technical requirements
  • produce an impact statement of the technical solution
  • evaluate the functionality of the business solution.

Note: If a specific volume or frequency is not stated, then evidence must be provided at least once.

Knowledge Evidence

To complete the unit requirements safely and effectively, the individual must:

  • outline business process design
  • list copyright and intellectual property relating to information and communications technology (ICT) systems development
  • explain the customer and business liaison processes
  • describe the implications of technology connectivity
  • list and describe the potential business solutions
  • explain the prevailing corporate strategies that may influence business solutions.

Assessment Conditions

Gather evidence to demonstrate consistent performance in conditions that are safe and replicate the workplace. Noise levels, production flow, interruptions and time variances must be typical of those experienced in the systems analysis and design field of work, and include access to:

  • business model
  • business requirements documentation
  • customer relationship model
  • hardware, software and network requirements
  • software solutions to build business platform
  • processes to be changed by the business solution
  • security protocols suitable for business solutions
  • special purpose tools, equipment, materials and industry software packages.
