information strategy; the role of system integrators; various IS/IT architectures; outsourcing in
informatics, etc.The field also covers modern software development methodologies (such as
agile approaches) and advanced techniques of data processing (knowledge discovery from
databases and web, integration of semantically described data etc.).
The doctoral study is primarily aimed at successful elaboration and defence of a highstandard
doctoral thesis, in which theoretical knowledge including an overview of world
trends is combined with practical findings. The high professional quality of the PhD students
