Product description

From the Back Cover

IT takes the stage in business!

In today’s businesses, Information Technology is one of the hottest ticket in town. Successful management of IT can mean the difference between making it big, or not making it at all. And no other text does a better job of highlighting the critical impact of IT on today’s businesses and the relevance of IT to students’ careers, than Turban, Rainer, and Potter’s INTRODUCTION TO INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY.

Now redesigned, revised, reorganized, and updated with the latest wireless technologies and new technology trends, the Third Edition of this popular text makes IT relevant and engaging for all students, regardless of their major.


  • Club IT: The new web–based Virtual Company case for the Third Edition gives students the opportunity to develop IT solutions for a simulated music venue called Club IT, which presents live music and DJs. Students are “hired” as consultants for the club and asked to work on IT projects.
  • Mobile, Wireless and Pervasive Computing: These technologies are rapidly spreading and changing information technology. A new chapter on Mobile, Wireless, and Pervasive Computing (Chapter 6) is right at the cutting–edge of these exciting business developments.
  • Relevance: The authors explain why IT is important to all individuals and functions within an organization by relating topics to specific business majors (finance, marketing, MIS, production/operations, HR, etc.) in every chapter.
  • New Interactive Learning Sessions: These new online exercises provide interactive cases that support the content in each chapter of the text. They include interactive drag–and–drop exercises, simulations, and animations that help students visualize IT processes.
  • Business Extra Select: This online feature allows instructors to package the text with software applications lab manuals, cases, articles, and other real–world content, from sources such as Harvard Business School cases, Fortune, The Economist, The Wall Street Journal, and much more. Instructors can combine the Third Edition with the content you choose to create a fully customized textbook. Go to www.wiley.com/college/bxs for additional information.
