The new edition of this MIS text retains the clear, readable writing style and managerial perspective of the first edition. A "strategy-action" theme, which focuses students on information systems goals, emphasizes the role of people in information systems, and balances technical with managerial issues, and is reinforced by boxed features and end-of-chapter case studies. The modular organization allows flexibility in customizing material in the text to fit course objectives, and there is an extensive support package. In this new edition topics from the previous edition have been streamlined to allow discussion of the latest technologies such as: pen-based computers; disk array systems; CASE tools; outsourcing; downsizing; group decision support systems; object-oriented interfaces; knowledge-based systems: neutral networks; and international issues (global networking). The business examples (boxed with the text) have been updated along with the end-of-chapter, real world, case studies. Also available are: an instructor's manual (0-07-048574-7); overhead transparency masters (0-07-074577-3); and printed test bank (0-07-048575-5).
