First published almost ten years ago, "Information Systems Development" is used by lecturers and students worldwide. Through long experience of teaching with the text and feedback from colleagues and students, the authors have continued to build from the solid foundations of the original text. The new 3rd edition of "Information Systems Development" has been updated and enhanced to reflect the latest developments in IS technology, and to meet the needs of a new generation in IS studies. The book contains comprehensive coverage of diverse topics including Oracle applications, UML notation, RUP, RAD and DSDM. There is a new section on SAP and other ERP systems. E-commerce and web applications such as Dreamweaver are examined, as well as additional information on package development and component based design. The authors further illustrate how these various technologies integrate with social and economic factors to provide a thorough examination of "Information Systems Development". Due to this broad content base, "Information Systems Development" is suitable for a wide range of degree programs without impacting the unique requirements of either computer science, or business and management courses. Both theoretical models and real-world examples provide an engaging and practical text, and there is considerable web-based support material available for both lecturers and students.
