Product description

From the Back Cover

Guides students through choosing, developing and managing information systems to achieve business aims.

In modern business, good development and management of business information systems are central to the success or failure of the organisation. Starting from first principles, this book provides you with the knowledge needed to understand:

  • the technology of business information systems,
  • the development of efficient and reliable business information systems,
  • the strategic use of information systems for effective management and competitive advantage.

This third edition has completely updated coverage of contemporary topics like security, knowledge management and new technologies and continues to develop the practical skills that students need for problem solving and designing systems in the real world.

Frequent business examples, case studies and web-links bring the subject alive and there are a wealth of questions, exercises and further reading both in the book and online at www.pearsoned.co.uk/bis which help students to check their understanding, complete assignments and prepare for exams.

Business Information Systems is ideal for students taking a course in Business or Management Information Systems, Business Information Technology or Computer Science.

"Linking technology and management has never been easier. This is a great book, containing almost everything a business student should know about Information Systems." - Dr. R.H.J. Ronken, Department of Accounting and Information Management, Faculty of Economics and Business Administration, Maastricht University
