New and Updated Chapters This edition includes a completely new chapter—Chapter 15, Enterprise Information Systems.

Chapter 8, Fundamentals of Computer Processing, has been updated with current hardware and software examples. Chapter 9, The Database and Database Management System, and Chapter 10, Data Communications, have also been completely revised.
