Functional area coverage still emphasized, just reorganized to help professors cover the topics more quickly and easily;

All new 5 part integrated case on Software Reengineering Company written by Doug Bock.
Real-life boxed examples - found in most chapters and renamed for this edition as "Manager's Memos," these present real-life scenarios on information systems.
User-manager perspective and emphasis - Schultheis/Sumner focus on the question "Does the manager need to know it?" when choosing content for the text. The authors select information systems topics that are important to the manager rather than the systems analyst or the MIS major.
Integration of theory and practice - as with previous editions, this edition also contains information management theories important to the manager, maintaining the text's higher-level, sophisticated reputation
