O’Brien’s Introduction to Information Systems 13e continues to reflect the movement toward enterprise-wide business applications. George Marakas from the University of Kansas joins as a co-author on this new edition. New real world case studies correspond with this curriculum shift. The text’s focus is on teaching the general business manager how to use and manage the most current IT technologies such as the Internet, Intranets, and Extranets for enterprise collaboration, and how IT contributes to competitive advantage, reengineering business processes, problem solving, and decision-making.

Chapter-Opening Real World Cases: These cases fall right at the beginning of each chapter to immediately illustrate to students the chapter's concepts in real world settings.
Hands-on Application Exercises: These assignments in Chapters 2-11 require the use of database and spreadsheet software or the Internet to solve a business problem. The database and spreadsheet student data files are provided on the text's OLC for downloading.
Five-area framework: An O'Brien trademark, the framework organizes the IS knowledge a business student needs to know into 5 components'Foundation Concepts, Information Technologies, Business Applications, Development Processes, and Management Challenges'that correspond to the modules of the text. The framework has been revised for the 10E to better and more easily communicate the areas of IS knowledge.
