From the Back Cover:

Because information systems are essential to the operations of business today, students need to understand information systems and technology, and their integration into business activities. But how can a student understand the role of information systems in business without first understanding business and its functions?

This question prompted the writing of this text. Chapter, "Business Fundamentals", provides students with patient, clear explanations and numerous illustrations of basic business concepts that they need to know in order to fully comprehend the role of information systems in business.
