About this title:

Synopsis: Information Systems 101: A Business Owner's Guide for Staying Afloat guides the reader through establishing information systems cultures and communications standards; creating hardware, software, and network documentation; generating information systems, business, and records procedures; and developing a disaster preparedness program.

From the Author: Eighteen months ago, as a 30-year information systems veteran, I became so concerned by a need to urge companies to put strategies in place to prevent and deal with information system disasters that I temporarily derailed my new career in creative writing for one parting blast at the crisis I saw (and still see!). The result is Information Systems 101, A Business Owner’s Guide for Staying Afloat.

I use a nautical theme to explain the components of information systems and provide easy-to-understand guidelines on how to manage information systems before they manage you. The book is a quick read filled with real life disasters, showing the reader how to find Information Systems professionals, establish information systems cultures and communications standards, develop project management guidelines, gather documentation (hardware, software, and networks), generate procedures, address electronic records management, and map out a basic disaster recovery plan.

Information Systems 101 A Business Owner's Guide for Staying Afloat successfully presents a step-by-step approach to take the helm, but isn’t the all-too-frequent heavy, dry, and boring technical read.
