From the Back Cover:

In order to run a successful business, today’s manager needs to combine business skills with an understanding of information systems and the opportunities and benefits that they bring to an organisation. Starting from basic concepts, this book provides a comprehensive and accessible guide to:

  • understanding the technology of business information systems;
  • choosing the right information system for an organisation;
  • developing and managing an efficient business information system;
  • using information systems strategically to achieve organisational goals.

 

Taking a problem-solving approach, Business Information Systems looks at information systems theory within the context of the most recent business and technological advances. This thoroughly revised new edition has updated and expanded coverage of contemporary key topics such as:

  • Web 2.0
  • enterprise systems
  • implementation and design of IS strategy
  • outsourcing

 

Business Information Systems does not assume any previous knowledge of IS or ICT, and new concepts are simply defined. New business examples, case studies and web links are fully integrated throughout illustrating the relevance and impact of information systems in today’s business environment. In addition there are a wealth of questions and exercises both in the book and online at www.pearsoned.co.uk/bis enabling students to test their understanding of key topics and issues.

 

This book is ideal for students on any courses related to business information systems or management information systems at undergraduate or postgraduate level.

Synopsis:

A comprehensive introduction to the technology, development and management of business information systems. The book assumes no prior knowledge of IS or IT, so that new concepts and terms are defined as clearly as possible, with explanations in the text, and definitions at the margin. In this fast-moving area, the book covers both the crucial underpinnings of the subject as well as the most recent business and technology applications. It is written for students on any IS, BIS or MIS course from undergraduate to postgraduate and MBA level within a Business or Computer Science Department.
